a mink coat? When my grandmother passed, I was given my great grandmother's mink coat. It is beautiful, although not my style :). Anyway I just have it in my closet and I was purging through stuff last night and my closet is dusty!! Next on my to do list ;). I don't mind keeping it in there, I just want to protect it instead of it just hanging their uncovered. Or do I? I should also add mold can be a problem in my house too. Thanks!

I would say if your not going to wear it take it to a dry cleaner that does wedding gown preservation and have them clean and package it the same way. Just a thought.

Like the idea of the dry cleaner.. If you dont want to go through that expense I would get a garmet bag and hang it in that zipped up in closet..

You could always try how they do wedding dresses.

You could drap a unused sheet around it. That way it can breath but still keep the dust of of it.

Definitely don't just store it in your closet. Moth can get to it, and molds. Take it to a professional cleaner and see if they have a mothproofing and storage bag option. See if there is one in your area who will also store the coat- perhaps a furrier would have this service.

 A dry cleaner will package it properly for storage, as they would a wedding gown.
