A Warning from Third Generation Fur Expert

A Warning from Third Generation Fur Expert

Slate-colored Rabbit Fur Vest with Fox Fur Collar

I am in the fur business for over 35 years, I am the third generation furrier. The business has changed drastically over the past 10 years. I sold over 1000 furs on ebay in the past, furs we had over stocked, furs that we took in for trade or furs that we discontinued.

I was just surfing on ebay and I found a selection of furs from China which were priced far less than I pay for them. I was amazed at the pricing and the value that was offered online by some ebay sellers.

I too buy from China, but you never know what the next company has to offer, so saw some great value,some  fabulous pictures which represent the product, some great ratings about the seller, so I tested the purchase buy bidding and buying.

The first piece arrived, nothing like the picture, the fur quality was poor, the knitting of the mink was of poor quality and a different color, the silver fox, which was to be bright was dull. Not good.

My second purchase was 3 fabulous furs, a full skin mink jacket, a ivory knit mink, and another knit mink. It has been almost 4 weeks, I still have not received. I sent 3 emails requesting shipping information, but to date received no info.

When you buy from China or any other country, what you need is an agent which inspects the furs prior to shipping. The agent does add a cost to the fur, but atleast you get what you pay for.

Buyers Beware
