Fur For When it’s Brrrr!

Dear Diva Readers,

Antiques Diva Client Stacey T is guest blogging today, telling about her favorite purchase on an Antiques Diva Tour!

“I love to wrap myself in the most luxurious vintage fur coat The Antiques Diva  helped me buy during a recent shopping expedition to Berlin, Germany.  I  had so much enjoyed shopping with The Antiques Diva previously in Paris, The Netherlands and  Belgium that I quickly booked an outing with her when a girlfriend and I had a recent trip to Europe.

The Antiques Diva recommended that I come to Berlin since I was in the market for a full length mink coat, so we arranged transportation and headed there.  Talk about being worth the trip!  The Antiques Diva took me and my friend shopping at an outdoor flea market Saturday morning.  After she gave us a quick market once-over (amazing variety of antiques!), she suggested that we take a sausage and sauerkraut snack break (delicious sustenance) before diving into the fur.  And dive we did!  There must have been over a thousand different vintage coats available – full length mink, short wraps, Russian hats, fluffy jackets.  The abundance was amazing (and overwhelming!)

The Antiques Diva helped me focus and pick out coats, held my things while I tried them on, offered comments on style, use and price, and was a goddess of patience since I wanted to try on everything I touched.  Fifty coats later, I emerged with a gorgeous full length dark brown mink and a mink wrap.  Due to her mad negotiation skills and connection with the shopkeeper, The Antiques Diva worked the price down to a stunningly low 500 euros for both pieces.  I had planned to spend double that on one, so it was like I got a discount AND a gift with purchase!”

Stay warm this winter!

  2. Wow what a magnificent find! For those seeking a value in a mink, you hit the motherload! . So jealous as I have sought a reasonably priced mink for my daughter living back east for so long. But Berlin is just a tad bit far for my next shopping trip. Congratulations nonetheless for the experience and great deal.
