Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur? (Including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.)
A: Yes – there are no restrictions in our terms and conditions on the sale of real fur. We stipulate that all goods sold must comply with all sale of goods legislation. This would indicate that fur goods approved for import and sale by UK government can be sold.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.
Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Dan O’Sullivan, via email at Daniel.O’Sullivan@hackney.gov.uk
