    Just got a batch in from the tannery this evening, and unfortunately they did a whack job on a few of these furs. Especially the bobcat I was not happy to see when I opened that box! (but luckily I got some prettier ones in from Marc Romine recently!)
    Anyway, I am offering these at a discount because of the damage. Buyer pays shipping.

    Raccoon: Great quality fur, just lost the end of the tail. Otherwise, flawless. $35

    2 possums: One has slip spots, the other a large hole in the snout. $15 each

    5 mink: Overall excellent fur, but all have face damage. Nothing serious except for one that is missing half its head. $15 each or $65 takes all five.

    Bobcat: Super soft fur, CITES tagged, but has multiple slip spots on the shoulders and underside. Just pay the cost of tanning, $25 + shipping

    Or, take ALL of these for $155 shipped!

    Depends on how long you'd like me to hold it. The longest I typically hold items is a week. I have held stuff back for longer, but often had problems with people not paying.. so, a week is the longest I'll go. Thanks!

    Yes, same answer as above I can hold it for a week :)
  5. who tanned them??? (which tannery)

    Wolfwoman $90 for your fur made into trapper hat or mitts!

    Is it possible to see how badly the underside is slipped?

    These were tanned by Tubari Ltd. in New Jersey. I've had both good and bad results from them, so I am waiting on another batch I sent to Moyles tannery as an experiment, to see if the quality is any better.

    These are still good craft furs, nice and soft and supple, but just not up to the resale quality I was hoping to get.

    Wolfwoman, I'll take a picture of the cat's underside later today. The slippage isn't horrible underneath, its mostly under and between the front legs.

    Yes, a week if good :) I'll let you know if I won't get it, what does the underside look like?
  9. Might be interested in bobcat; can I see pics of slippage? If it's not too bad, might send it off to wolfwoman and see if she can make something with it :) !

    Here's the underside of the bobcat. The slippage is only really bad on the chest but the rest of the belly has good fur.

    No problem. And the underside of the possum is in good shape, nothing wrong with it. I could take a picture if you need, but it just looks like, well, the underside of a possum!

    Shame that tanner messed up that pretty cat and that nice coon :(
  14. Are any of these still available?
  15. Mink

    Mink New Member

    The bobcat is still available, and one mink (the one with half its face).

    The coon and one possum I used the fur to make hats, and I am still holding back the middle mink and the possum on the left, for Sahakittythegreat and BluesEyes.

    Bobcat sold, just have the half-faced mink left but I'll use the fur for something else if nobody buys it!
