Dude, I asked you if you were going the other day, but you hemmed and hawed. Now I don't know if I'll let you travel with me. But you might be able to talk me into it. How good are your begging skills?

I've never been to a chinchilla show before & planning to attend the Lansing one tomorrow.
In the quoted thread, it mentions pelt showing.
Do chinchilla shows also display or sell chinchilla pelts (the fur itself) other than live chinchillas?
