Well demoís and seeing the highest priced cat here I come! Girlfriend said sheís actually interested to see it. We toured a furbuyers shop last year so she got to see how a bigger shop turns coyotes into marketable pelts.

Wow, what a turn out.  A heck of a lot more fur then they thought would come in.  The buyers were complaining about space, which is very understandble.  I'm thinking they are going to have to look for a much bigger place.  Some really nice fur brought in.  Once I find out the numbers and prices I will post it here.

Nice pictures Fred.  You don't mind if I use some of them for our magazine do you?
Sorry I didn't make it.  I had a couple issues come up that I needed to attend.

I've been talking to some of the guys over there.
Yep they are going to need to find another place for next years sale and one of their members step up and has already found it for them.   :tup:

I heard the sale was great with all they had there including the demo's, auction items, and more helpers standing around waiting for something to do.
A lot of members kicking in doing what ever they could to help and make the sale go smooth.

Fur Buyers, they had 11 I think I was told and the prices they paid were good.
I'll let you Fred give them or I can in a day or two.
JC   :hello:

Absolutely, you are more than welcome to the photos.  If you get the final figures, by all means please post them.  That is awesome that they have already tracked down another place.  I had a great time and learned a bunch.  I have never been involved with a fur sale and I look forward to helping out again next time.

John if you know who all of the buyers were, if you don't mind posting that as well.  I had a friend in MT that makes fur garments that was wondering who all was there buying and I did not know other than a couple of the bigger buyers.  I told him I'd try and find out.
