Vintage Fur is it ethical?

(Ontario, Canada)

Firstly, let me say that I own 5 fur coats, 4 of which are vintage (over 20 years old purchased as used). I live in a Northern climate and appreciate the warmth of a fur coat, but would never pay what a furrier charges for new.

I began shopping online for a fur coat a year ago and am hooked on winter fur fashion. I have made 3 throws (2 mink and 1 fox). They are so warm and beautiful casually thrown over a chair in my living and family rooms. I have redesigned mink coats into jackets, scarves and head bands.

However, even though I am all about recycling existing furs and would never buy new, I do acknowledge that wearing fur is sending the message that wearing fur is acceptable.
