On January 25, 2015, ReMinkie Memory Bears was recommended by Sabine Morrow in her section “Where Can I Find It?” for the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
In the column, a reader explains that he’s recently received his 90-year-old mother’s Black Diamond mink coat with sable collar. He would like to turn the fur coat into a beautiful throw, but he doesn’t know the best company for this. In response, Sabine Morrow writes:
“Lance, you’re in luck. I found Rita Glosser who runs ReMinkie Memory Bears and Custom Keepsakes, which transforms fur coats or stoles into stuffed bears, blanket or throws. She started the business 21 years ago, after retiring to Florida. Her first project was turning her mother’s fur stole into a teddy bear. Today, ReMinkie also takes those old neckties and turns them into pillows, quilts, and yes, bears. And for horse fanciers, ReMinkie turns that favorite horse blanket into lovely custom pillows. Her price for a throw is $795, and she uses a velvet cotton backing so the throw won’t slip or slide when you place it on a chair or bed…”
We appreciate the recommendation! We always welcome more opportunities to transform old furs, fabrics and neckties into beautiful keepsakes. Thanks to Sabine Morrow and AJC for the referral.
