I just got my sale receipt from the last NAFA sale.

I owe them money. I sold absolutely no fur, and had about $4 in drumming charges.

That the first time I ever ended up owing the fur buyer money. smile smile smile

Leon Smith here in Kentucky sold four pelts for 13.00 and got a 40 dollar drumming bill. Hes 82 and it was a first for him too.

Drumming is when they put fur-out items in a tumbler with some special wood pellets like coarse sawdust to clean them up.
