NAFA’s February mink sale came to a close today, continuing a trend of advancing prices on White and Pastel mink.
White males saw an increase of 5-10% throughout the collection, with larger sizes and shorter naps advancing 10-15% over levels achieved at the most recent international auction. White female mink saw advances of up to 10%.
Pastel males and females saw levels that were firm to up to 10% over our June 2016 results on better qualities.
Although the greatest presence in the buying room came from our customers from China and Hong Kong, it was the participation of the global market, solidly represented by Greece, Korea, and Russia, that helped create these positive results after a difficult opening to the market.
We would like to thank our loyal customers from all markets, and we look forward to seeing you again in May, where we will offer both our largest collection of high quality mink, and our largest selection of exceptional wild fur for the year.
