Oh my gosh....I just loved my experience of buying a mink coat this Christmas season from Wachtenheim Furs. I searched at every department store, Neimans, Saks, Bloomingdales, and checked out most of the LA fur salons. I take my purchases very seriously and I finally arrived to Wachtenheim Furs in Downtown Los Angeles. If you're looking for a glitzy salon, this is more like your entree to the wholesale world of shopping for exceptional quality furs at the best prices. This is where the stores buy and I found out this is where alot of the stars and stylists and designers buy! I was in awe when Daniel Wachtenheim, the owner, showed me a huge selection of furs, much more extensive and even nicer than I saw in the high end stores. I tried on different coats, finally settled in on a Natural Lunaraine Female mink coat. I had seen one at Neimans , same style, costing alot of money, and when Daniel told me his price, I nearly fell off my chair, it was that good of a price, very fair for such a high quality mink coat. He fitted the coat for me, free alterations, when I returned I got a free cover and hangar and monogram in the lining. Daniel was the most courteous, down to earth, knowledgable person. He grew up in the business, unlike sales people in the stores, this man knew his business. Such nice people working there, such beautiful furs, I'm definitely bringing my girlfriends in. I think they're only by appointment as this is wholesale to the public. I can't express how pleased I was with this experience overall. My only down is that I can't just walk in and find the owner there, as it must be by appointment, but I understood this when I was there as since it's wholesale, this was a treat to be allowed to shop where the actual stores will buy their coats and get prices comparable. Sorry to go on and on....just love my mink coat loved the experience, and will come back again.
