JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Ron Kaminski, 75, has had his share of mistakes but said this is one he regrets.
"It it was a hundred dollars, I would have wrote it off as a bad experience," he said, "but being it was four thousand brand new."
Kaminski said last November, he decided to get rid of a fur coat, the remnant of a failed relationship.
"I bought it for a lady friend and we broke up and I ended up with the fur coat," he said.
Kaminski, who was living in the San Marco community, met the owner of the now closed consignment shop My Best Friend's Closet.
"She said it was such a beautiful coat she might be able to get me a good price," he said. "I said 'fine.'"
Kaminski said in December he moved from San Marco to the Baymeadows area, in January, he went to the store to check on the status of his coat and the store was closed.
