EDMONTON — The search is on to find a new home for a small piece of Canada’s history – a rare sealskin parka that was donated to an Edmonton thrift store.
A sealskin parka was dropped off at the Whyte Avenue Goodwill location last week. The coat likely dates back to the 1960s or 70s, and bears a tag “Handmade by Eskimos, Holman NWT Canada.”
Because of the heritage value of the item, Goodwill felt that it wasn’t appropriate to put it on the floor for sale, and is instead trying to find a museum in Alberta or northern Canada to take the coat.
