Selling fur

Recommended Posts


Your about 20 years late I think, real fur is not very popular these days, used to make a tidy wage in the 1980s but not now 😪

Lots of video's on YouTube showing different ways of tanning. Also vids on making garments out of them. You can get the propper sowing kits on eBay for sowing furs

Well I suppose  I could use them and learn new skills how much did you get for your furs back in the 80s

Rabbits were not worth skinning as one of my main customers was Bristol zoo and a lot of the animals need the fur and bones as part of there digestion though I expect people would have bought them, main fur income was off Fox’s at between £15/£25 per pelt, squirrels tails, hare masks and jays wings went for fly tying at 50p a pop and clean rabbits were 50p at the game dealer, Everything had value back then when people were more normal I could sell a van load of rainbow trout at a quid a pop in the pubs no problem, same with birds and deer, folk like to click and collect these days, it’s easier and cheaper 😂😂😂

Shot a prime winter pelt the other day and thought what a waste it was to incinerate it .Might think  about case skinning a few and sticking them on EBay ,£100 a pop .If bits of antler sell then surely there’s a market for preserved skins .
