**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** Mink-Trimmed ICE SKATES!*!*!

OMG!*!*!  REAL "MINK-TRIMMED" Ice SKaTes!!!  I've only come across a couple pairs like this in all my years of antique shopping!!!  I've now SOLD both "after" having enjoyed them for a season or two...  This vignette was on our front porch entry a couple years ago...  The real dusting of snow made it "PeRfeCtLy SHaBBy"!!!


  BeSt!*!*!   Mink Trimmed ViNtaGe Ice Skates!*!*!

Our Wisconsin Weekend Winter Storm has begun...  Living so close to Lake Michigan, there's a slim chance it may travel more NORTH of Us...  Time will tell...  In the meantime, fridge is well-stocked & "Pot Roast" on the menu...

  3. hi jeanine....i so would've bought those!!! My daughter has been a figure skater since she was 7 (now 25, still skating and coaching). I look for different (vintage) skating novelties all the time for her. She has a little collection of vintage skating christmas decorations going on---those mink skates would've been a perfect addition!!! (it's going to take her a few more years yet to realize that---but in the mean time, us "junkin' mammas" know what's best!! haha)
