I am beginning to think that fur lovers have not heard that there is a recession. About a year ago I bid on Ebay for a fox stole comprising two pelts because it was in immaculate condition and i paid just under £14 for it. Two weeks ago I bid on another similar fox stole because of its condition, I am not particularly short of money so I put in a bid of £35 on the assumption that it would be mine; I looked after bidding had ended and it had sold for £52. I could not believe that someone was willing to pay close on four times what i had paid in only the space of a year.
Since then I have been looking at Ebay UK and people are paying, relatively speaking a lot of money for real vintage fur; it makes me wonder who is buying it and why.
