In Toruk's name!
Couple of questions that arose during play for us:

1. Player uses the familiar that allows you to swap items with an adjacent player and tries to steal my potion. Am I allowed to drink my potion before he steals it, or is it too late once the stealing intention is declared? Items can be used even during other players turns as the rulebook implies?

2. Whilst fighting a monster, when the monster is revealed, can you use a healing potion or similar to restore yourself to full health before fighting it? Or once you turn the card over is it too late?

An item can be used at any time except when an encounter is affecting the item itself.

ie 1. A thief steals one item at random. No item is being targeted so any item can be used before resolution of random event.
2. A creature attacks. ANY item can be used (before, during or after combat).
3. A spell or effect targets the item. THE ITEM CANNOT BE USED.

So in your case. You can drink your potion when the other player approaches you but CAN'T once they declare that they are stealing your potion.
