Largest Fur Buyers of Used Furs in the Country
Henry Cowit, Inc. travels and networks nationwide to acquire the largest inventory of pre-owned, vintage and designer furs in the country. Our many years of experience in the second hand fur market puts us way ahead of the newcomers who are now just jumping into second hand furs. Because we are not fancy, we are able to translate our lack of high overhead into great prices, year round. As the country’s preeminent fur buyer and consignment broker of pre-owned fur garments, we get calls and e-mails from all over the country.
Our Main Goal is to Buy Your Fur
As fur buyers, our main goal is to buy your fur garments but if we can’t get together on a fur buying price, we can take your fur garments on consignment and try to sell them for you at a price that will be more beneficial to you.
Before contacting us to sell your fur, here are some details we will need to know before telling you whether we will be interested in your garmet:
- type of fur
- style of fur garment
- fur color and size
- fur’s age
- some digital pictures emailed to us works the best (we request full shots of the front and back, a closeup, no lining pictures unless it is a designer piece and if possible, to have someone model the garment as it is much easier for us to see the garmet. Please make sure your pictures are bright and clear).
The most important factor in buying your fur is the condition of the garment (that means the underneath leather side to make sure there is no dryness or rips). Digital pictures of your garment will help but we cannot tell quality and condition from a picture. We will not give final prices based on your pictures. We only give definite prices upon inspection of your fur. Please make sure your pictures are bright and clear.
No appointments are necessary when to show us your fur but please make sure it is something we will be interested in. Over the phone or by emailing we will only give you an approximate fur buying range.
Fur Buyers Don’t Buy Every Fur
We do not buy every fur. If you do ship in your fur garments for inspection and we cannot get together on price to buy or take them on consignment, we will send back your fur coats at your expense.
If you bring in your furs to the store for us to buy, it will require an identification card such as your driver’s license or passport before we buy any fur garment.
When We Are Interested in Buying Your Fur
When we are interested in buying your fur and we agree on the buying price, we will give you a check on the spot. We do not give cash for fur buys but we will endorse the checks so that you will be able to cash it at our bank or a local check cashing service. If you ship it in and we agree to buy, we will send out a check immediately.
When Buying Your Fur Doesn’t Work Fur Consignment is the Answer
When consigning a fur to us, our policy is that what ever price that we have both agreed to, that is what you will receive (no 60-40 or 50-50 split). You will be paid upon sale of your fur garment via check. We can take furs on consignment for any periods of time. The longer you give us, the more chance we will have to sell your fur. We also might try and sell your fur garment to one of our wholesale accounts so we do request the right to show your furs out of town. This is all spelled out in a fur consignment contract that we will give you once it is read and signed by both of us.
