I put my fur into storage at Foerster Furs for 5 years. When it went into storage, it was in perfect condition, witnessed by another excellent furrier in Delaware. When I took it out of storage for another out of state move, I found it had been ruined....shedding, bald spots, awful. I consulted with another furrier who explained to me that even when in storage, you must have the fur cleaned and conditioned every year (since it is a skin and will dry out otherwise). Foerster Furs was very prompt about invoicing me each year, but never mentioned this detail! And has not responded to my request to make this situation right, in some way.
