Wearing Fur...

Say you are opposed to the wearing of fur for ethical reasons, i.e. if you buy a fur jacket then you're increasing the supply and demand of the fur trade.

Is it acceptable to wear a fur jacket from a vintage/second hand shop, where buying fur wouldn't have an impact on the fur trade?

What should happen to old furs then? For example, if old (deceased) aunt Dot had a mink shawl that she passed onto you and you're morally opposed to fur, do you burn the item? Throw it out? Give it a proper animal funeral?

Inspired by a few op shops that I've seen that are run by vegetarians but stock vintage furs
