I am guessing you have already heard of the problems at NAFA (North American Fur Auction). Their financiers backed out on them a month ago. Subsequently they bounced some checks on some trappers. (Not good.) They worked out some deal with SAGA (the mink ranching folks) to help out. Now it seems that NAFA may very well not be buying wild fur this winter. I quote an email set to all their shippers. "At this point in time, we are not in a position to guarantee a wild fur collection in 2020."
For those who may not know, NAFA was formerly Hudson's Bay, a company that has been buying wild fur for 300 years. This may be the first time in 300 years that they won't.
I am concerned what this bodes for the industry.
Endeavor to persevere.
