QVC Furrier Basso’s Shop Robbed In Big Heist

December 27, 2016

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.
