Hackle ALERT !!!

Post by Theroe » Thu Mar 21, 2019 9:36 am

for those of you who MAY be interested:

Head to the "auction site", search for "Furnace hen neck cape".....it is NOT furnace, but the elusive "kneecap" which is red-black-red.
No risk of inciting another "Coch-Y-Bondhu / Furnace debate, as the pictured pelt is clearly NOT Black-Red-Black tip!

Happy hunting !!

Thanks, Dana.I had about 35 seconds to decide and act since dinner was on the table. 4 capes were left.

I ordered one. I spoke to the seller and what he has is not the one in the photo. I didn’t cancel my order so I will let you all know what mine looks like when I receive it but I suspect it will be a ordinary furnace.

Barry - Use your considerable pull with the home office, and demand the item pictured! Too many time on that site I have purchased one item, yet received another: unacceptable!

Dana, the seller is now listing 71 capes available! So the chances of getting the one pictured is not so good. I imagine whoever gets the one in the photo will not know what they have!

The cape arrived today. I have never received anything so quickly from UK before. Delivery time is usually three weeks. As Bazzer warned us, they are as described; furnace. Not as the photo but as the text. The quality is decent or reasonable or good, depending on what you are used to. Better than every cheap cape I have bought. It was worth a try.

Thanks Dana. It was a thrill.

I was really hoping it was “as advertised”......

No foul as far as I’m concerned, I haven’t received mine yet so there is still hope, but not much. Maybe I’ll get a CYB instead!😄😁
