Well Nafa had their sale and marten prices are on the rise again . !00% clearance. I shipped 10 marten for this sale plus fisher and mink. The fisher and mink will be offered at May sale. Have some more marten and fisher to send in March for the next sale. Things are looking better for next year already :) When they do the exchange rate should be $100 or just over average. :D . All prices shown are in US currency

So over all prices have improved. My Average last year on marten with exchange was $68.00
We will see how the rest of the fur species do at sale and maybe next year go back after all nine species.

Yep, those tree mink per sq. inch or cm are probably the most valuable fur out there (a good western bcat belly might give sable a run for it if they only used the belly). I'm sure if I saw one another next to each other I'd understand but the price difference between a matern and mink of the same size and sex is pretty mind blowing. Then again, I guess you can't sub the luxurious silkiness of a sable vs. its cousin...
