I recently got a steal of a deal on some old fur from a Goodwill. Some of the pelts are in great shape and wearable as of now--such as some of the minks. However, there are a lot of old fur collars, as well as some random old scraps, that I have no idea what to do with. I don't really have anything worthy of attaching a fur collar to, so I'm kind of stuck on what to do with them. Any ideas?

This probably isn't what you are really looking for, but I bought an old fur collar at a swap meet for a couple of bucks thinking I could do something creative... come to find out, I never did. So I put it on eBay and it actually went for $45. Haha... So if you can't think of anything, it looks like there is a market on ebay for last cause scenario! Good luck!!

Depending how many you have, you could try hot glueing them to a piece of material for a decorative throw...a pillow...scarf...hat..etc..

Earmuffs? Cat toys? Bear ornaments for the Christmas tree?

A friend of mine would hunt down real fur for the express purpose of making teddy bears, the antique style ones with jointed limbs. 

Use it like you would any other fabric.  Pillows, bags, burlesque undies, plush toys, slip cover for a chair seat or stool.....
