NAFA Sale Concludes with Record Results

The end of the NAFA mink sale saw Black Females achieving the highest overall average

prices of the year, while Mahogany and Demi/Wild Females sold at very firm levels. There

was, however, some price resistance to the levels achieved earlier in the season on both the

male and female Pastels. Buyers from Hong Kong and China were the primary buyers of the

Mahogany, Demi/Wild and Pastel varieties with good support from Korea.

NAFA’s wild fur collection sold in record quantities, however the prices were lower

compared to the February sale. As the auction house is not planning a September sale unsold

articles from this sale will be sold through visits to China and Greece.
