Strong Attendance Reverses Market Trend

February 10, 2017

NAFA’s 2017 selling season opened today to a full auction room with international buyers hailing from all major markets, including China, Korea, Greece, and Russia. Throughout the day, the packed room saw energetic and highly competitive bidding for NAFA’s first offering of Black NAFA and Mahogany mink.

Greece and Russia were the largest takers of our highly regarded collection of Black NAFA males, which saw price advances between 10-15% above our June 2016 levels. China and Korea competed for better quality shorter nap Black NAFA females, which saw advances of up to 10% over our last sale.

Mahogany males saw support from all markets, advancing up to 10%. Mahogany females went primarily to China and Korea, with better qualities and shorter naps achieving levels up to 10% over recent international levels.

NAFA’s February sale continues tomorrow with the sale of Demi Brown, Silverblue, Pearl, and Can-Am Sable.
