Lurking in the depths of my wardrobe are two fur items - a full length ?Beaver coat and a pale fur cape.
These came down to me from my grandmother and mother, as, as a student in the 1970s, they were much sought after (especially when the sleeves were cut off)😱.
Has anyone had to dispose of similar items? Please could you give me some suggestions - charity shops, vintage clothing shops, amateur dramatics?
I am quite sure that they will be definitely taboo to people these days, -and rightly so - but do I just do a Paula Hamilton (1979s Golf advert 'Changes' and Alan Price😉) and chuck them in the landfill bin?
Regrettably, not even the moths have had a go at them, and my kids are repulsed by the very notion of them!
Thank you in advance for any help!
