Custom upcycleing of your vintage Fur

Not sure what to do with your moms vintage fur?  We offer a complimentary consultation at our Cochrane location, to discuss your options and ideas to turn that coat into a vintage heirloom. We can create beautiful luxury gifts for the bride and groom, and entire wedding party such as: muffs and shawls as well as Fur trimmed Irish custom cloaks, capes and ponchos in all colors and various fur trims. Some other ideas? Pillows, luxury throws, fur collar, cuffs, fur trim on an old coat,  cape or poncho!  fur covered footstool or bench. Weddings, Christmas, Halloween, birthdays, any occasion!


We also do repairs to your fur coat or collar such as replacement of fur ruffs on hoods, repairs of separated pelts, hemming, shortening, sleeve removal for  the purpose of a vest, restitching of linings. Please note that a consultation must occur to evaluate the extent of damage to the coat as some repairs are just not possible. 


At Bella's Vintage Luxuries we also accept and appreciate fur donations. Quite often I am approached about donations for various reasons: closet cleaning, the passing of a loved one, no longer wearing the fur, or inherited the fur and wont wear it. What ever the reason if its in good shape we will accept it!

Donation for a Cause

In the last 2 years I have received several coats as donations with a request to turn them into lap quilts to be donated to a retirement home of the donators choice, usually the home where a loved one had resided. WE LOVE THIS!! The fur is put to good use as there is nothing warmer that a fur quilt to an elder suffering from chronic cold issues even in the summer months. They are always well received and appreciated and the donator is keeping a memory alive and passing on a tradition.

Private Sale
I am approached on a weekly basis to buy fur privately. Please note that I have a supplier and generally DO NOT purchase privately. However there may be circumstances where a private sale is warranted. On these very rare occasions, I will inspect the fur(s) for quality and if up to my standards, pay via E transfer only. I DO NOT carry cash and prefer to transfer funds securely from one banking institution to another, where a record of the transaction has been established. I usually recommend that people post their fur sales on Kijiji.
