Doll's favorite sources for vintage finds are estate sales..."We find the
best quality items have already been partially 'dug' and ready for us to pick
and choose from."
My mother and I are making and selling handbags using vintage fabrics. I
recently bought a slightly damaged but fabulous fur muff and thought we could
add some fur trim to a few evening bags. The problem is I am having difficulty
identifying the fur. I own and wear vintage mink and fox and beaver, but this
is like none of them! Do you know of a book or website for help? Also, I would
like to be able to clean it myself. The only fur cleaner in town charges 5
times what I paid for it and I would like to keep a reasonable profit margin.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
