Announcement    The "mission" of my shop is to RESCUE, RECYCLE and REPURPOSE previously cherished natural fur products. I honor the animals' gift to us by saving their natural beauty from the landfill. Natural fur is one of nature's most beautiful products ... organic, biodegradeable and naturally sustainable. I have never and will never harm any animal. Please join me in extending the useful life of our natural resources.

I'm always here to answer questions about my FURS and to discuss possible CUSTOM ORDERS (January thru August). Thank you for your loving support!

Reasons why you can buy your VINTAGE FUR with confidence from my Etsy shop ...

My Etsy shops specialize in rescuing and recycling VINTAGE FURS, as well as offering items handmade from OLD FUR COATS. Over the last 4 years I've grown to be the LARGEST VINTAGE FURRIER on ETSY ... with over 1,100 items sold! When you purchase a VINTAGE FUR from me you can buy with confidence because:

* I'm a seamstress first, so each VINTAGE FUR that I offer has been thoroughly inspected and any repairs that time has made necessary ... have been made! I make sure that the pelts are in good condition (no damage, no dry rot), linings are securely attached, all closures are present and working perfectly and all pockets are empty ... I've found hankies, gloves, $0.85 and 3 Life Savers so far ... LOL ... even one grocery list!
* The handmade items that I sell have been made by me, no one else!
* EXPERIENCE WITH and KNOWLEDGE OF FUR ... Given that I've sold more than 950 FURS, when I identify the species of FUR you can be confident of it! VINTAGE FURS are ALL that I do and I strive to do my best with each "previously cherished" FUR that comes my way.
* HONEST LISTINGS ... I fully disclose ALL KNOWN stains or damage when present. I'm human and do miss things, but I pride myself on catching most issues.
* I sell only TOP QUALITY vintage FURS ... and provide GOOD VALUE for your money.
* I have a "Clearance Rack" for FURS that either don't meet my quality standards or have been in inventory for too long. Again, reasons are FULLY DISCLOSED.
* I accept that some people prefer to wear FAUX fur ... so, I offer a small selection of very nice quality fakes.
* I GUARANTEE each piece that I sell. I offer "hassle free" RETURNS because I want you to be totally thrilled when you purchase a VINTAGE FUR from my shop.
* REASONABLE PRICES along with fast, FREE SHIPPING
* Many of my FUR items come with storage bags that are designed for SAFE off-season FUR storage. Each coat and jacket includes a wide-shouldered fur hanger, too.
* Each order includes an instruction sheet to educate you on how to care for your "new" FUR. It's always good to learn about your fur ... this will enable you to properly care for it and enjoy it for many years to come.
* See my other Etsy shop if you're interested in purchasing PIECES of VINTAGE FUR to use in a crafting project. (That shop is called CraftCutterFur.)
* I'm committed to RECYCLING and REPURPOSING as much as possible as I work with my products and customers. I recycle a coat's FUR, it's lining, it's clasps and it's buttons. I even use recycled packing materials to ship your purchase to you.
* CUSTOMER SERVICE is my top priority ... I am a business woman with over 40 years in professional sales. I know that meeting my customer's needs and exceeding their expectations is the foundation of my success.
* OVER 450 5-STAR REVIEWS from satisfied customers here on Etsy ... please take the time to read what my customers have said about working with me and purchasing from my shop.
* I love selling and I love working with VINTAGE FURS. I welcome your questions, special orders and am happy to give my time to help where I'm able to.

Thank you for making me ... BARB "THE FUR LADY" ... the largest vintage furrier on Etsy!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I'm happy to consider custom orders. Whether or not it will be possible depends on my husband's health and my home related responsibilities. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding with this.

Sizing details

I try to provide items that don't require a size ... when a specific size is involved it will be clearly shown in the listing.

Wholesale availability

No, sorry. My first responsibility is as an Alzheimer's care giver and I cannot commit to large quantities. I don't know what my future brings.

Care instructions

Furs require professional fur cleaning. Chances are your local dry cleaner can provide that service for you.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I'm happy to add gift wrapping for the Christmas season, birthday or any other occassion. This will be an addition fee of $4 per item.
