Jersey boy QVC vendor Dennis Basso did not have a Merry Christmas: Thieves stole millions of dollars worth of sable coats from his chi-chi Madison Avenue salon.
The gravel-voiced furrier was the victim of discerning robbers who broke into his shop at 5 a.m. Christmas Eve, an action that was recorded on video security cameras.
The crooks struck while Basso was celebrating the holidays in Aspen, Colorado — far from his roots in Morris County, where we also grew up.
The robbers only took the shop’s most pricey coats, the sables, which in some cases were worth $200,000 each.
Of course, Basso’s QVC wares are faux, not real, fur.
