Downsizing with ReMinkie Memory Bears

In the Bella Casa article, Marla Ottenstein discusses the importance of downsizing and simplifying in our lives. At the same time, downsizing can be a difficult and emotional process for many people.

When it comes to family heirlooms, downsizing and simplifying can be even more daunting. How do we bear to part with a sentimental fur coat, even though no one will ever wear it again? Ms. Ottenstein offers practical solutions — including calling Rita Glosser of ReMinkie!

What to Do with Old Fur Coats and Family Heirlooms

When a person dies, family members are often at a loss over what to do with old fur coats and family heirlooms. Even worse, trying to decide who gets what can cause rifts among family members.

At ReMinkie, we have transformed mother’s old fur coats into a beautiful collection of memory bears. This can be the perfect way for each family member to receive a sentimental and nostalgic piece of their beloved mother’s fur coat. We also create custom pillows and throws from fur coats, fur hats, mink stoles, etc.

When suffering the loss of a loved one, memory bears make a comforting remembrance. Ready to hug and to hold, personalized teddy bears can be an excellent way to repurpose and upcycle the belongings of loved ones.

Atlanta Journal Constitution Recommends ReMinkie Memory Bears and Custom Keepsakes!

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.
