The wife of a traveling salesman is tired of being wrapped in her old cloth coat while all her friends seem to be draped in fur. It's not just that she feels frumpy and outshone, it's that it makes her husband look unsuccessful and is bad for him in his position, she argues. Then she hears about a secondhand mink that's not only beautiful but available at a price that's a real steal. Written by Morganalee

The Fifties Were Really Hard on Those Minks
23 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We recently inherited a mink coat. It is absolutely gorgeous. But who wears these things these days. I remember quiz shows in the fifties and sixties where this was the ultimate prize one could win. Models paraded around with them (Dicker and Dicker of Beverly Hills). This is about a woman who buys a mink stole on the cheap from some shady woman and then gets arrested because the thing is identified by the furrier who bought it. She has come for an appraisal and they recognize it. The police get involved and there is a whole secrecy thing. She is gaslighted, if you will. Nobody will take responsibility for selling it to her. Obviously, if you're a cop, you should realize right away that should you talk, you are admitting trafficking in stolen goods. Well, things get pretty intense with the woman ready to do jail time. There are further complications where things get resolved. There are some unanswered questions which people seemed happy to ignore back then.
