Regarding fox fur mittens ... Out of curiousity...

(Advanced warming for mods, please excuse this post, I realise it should be moved to ebay Plus in time, but I think this is justified being here for the short term as it is for a good cause & I wanted to make sure plenty of people read this initially.)

 

I'm interested to see how many people would be keen to see someone sell some fur mittens and possibly some fetish items on eBay.

 

I ask this because I recently brought an item from a newish seller on eBay call arctic-store, and I ended up asking if it was possible how easy it would be to do some custom stuff.

 

Anyway, basically what I originally asked was if it was possible if they could do some fox fur massage mitts. I saw some somewhere a while back on eBay that looked like this ...

... However, but they were $169-189 a pair! Far too much for me. Anyway, the the owner behind arctic store said they can make some much cheaper, from approx $99 for a pair made in fox exactly like the ones above. If there was enough interest they would do them in various colours later this year (I think they are only doing black fox for now). This is somewhat cheaper than any other place on eBay that I know, however they said to me that they will only make them if they feel there is sufficient demand and therefore the owner of the store did ask me if I could find some other people who would be potentially interested before they planned on making them.

 

So, if you are interested, please can you reply here so I can justify to the seller that these would be a popular with fur lovers.

 

Likewise I did also mention about making fetish underwear. I know a little while back someone posted a link to a seller hidden on eBay selling some (can't remember the seller now, I've uploaded some pics though that I saved when I saw them)...

Again however, these items where pretty expensive I seem to remember (over $200EUR). Again, arctic store expressed an interest in making these, though again it would be good to show them that there would be reasonable amount of buyers interested. I didn't get a quote for how much they would charge for something similar to the above, but I would guess again they would be round the same price as the massage mitts, $99 give or take a bit at a guess. Again, I would guess there would be a few people here who would like to be able to get hold of something like this, provided it was affordable.

 

Anyway, like I said, if people are interested, please leave a reply here. As we all know it's not easy finding fur items such as good mens fur coats, or specially made fur fetish items. Well here is a good chance to be able to get a regular supply of these sort of items easily at an affordable price hopefully! The seller said to me they'll go ahead with making these sort of items if I could find some potential buyers. If you also want to, message the seller in person, please do.... They don't have much listed on their store at the moment because it's the holiday season, but they said come September they should have a lot more stuff. You can get to it at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200120148767. Likewise it feel free to ask the seller any questions to leave them here so I can refer the seller to this post.

Great idea!

 

I would be interested in buying two fox mittens, but they must also be lined in fur as well...sheared beaver or something--NOT rabbit.

 

Thanks for looking into this!

MrsC and I have a pair of chinchilla mittens. They make a wonderful sex toy. One warning though -- be careful of shed (particularly with fox -- remember fox is closely related to dog). Left over hairs can become itchy if left in private places. Outside of that, go for it and have fun.

Oh, yea, that was it.

 

However their stuff is pretty expensive (well for me, it is, I'm a college student), I think arctic store will be able to charge about half the price they do maybe more in some circumstances, but like i said the owner said she'd like to see some other people interested in this sort of stuff before she went ahead and made a batch.

 

If you want to speak direct, catch them at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200120148767. I will also inform the seller of this post if enough people express an interest in seriously wanting to buy such stuff. Like I said she can do fox mitts for about $99 a pair, which is a lot cheaper than the $189 I saw somewhere else.

good job furcoatman. i'd just been looking at that seller's items last week and marked them for later. i'd be interested in the bikini set, too.

foxkid,

As one who is familiar with the prices for good fox pelts, and who has a good friend who is a furrier, in my opinion, the $169-$189 price for a pair of fox massage mitts is reasonable. I find it questionable that a furrier could make a pair of reasonable quality massage mitts from fox for $99. That sounds more like the price for one mitt.

Another question to ask would be if the mittens are made of new pelts or from retired fur coats. I know lots of people take a blue fox from the 70s or 80s and cut them up into accessories.

I would certainly purchase a pair at about $99!

 

However, I share the questions on if this is practical. Quality is vitally important and the questions above should be asked. A new, motivated furier would do good work for a low price to build a following and get established. that's my way of saying, sure, its possible.

They are from new pelts. I've just got my hat from this seller and it's really good quality thick soft silvery fox fur. It only cost me $60.

 

Like icepilot said, this seller is fairly new on the scene so the competitive prices are yes there so they can establish a good reputation / client base.
