    Default Who owns Hermes bags?

    Hi! I'm just wondering who, other than the rich & famous, owns Hermes bags? They are so expensive and such a statement. However, most of the people I know wouldn't have a clue on the value of such a bag. And I'm certain there are a TON of fakes out there. So, who owns these bags? Professionals, socialites... in NY, LA, Chicago... Does Jane Doe in small town America own one & what is her profession? Is there a minimum salary? Can Jane Doe even buy one or is the list too long and she keeps getting bumped.

    Someone please fill me in. I love quality and the fact that its a timeless bag. Am I dreaming too big to think I should have one? LOL! I don't want to have a real bag and have everyone think its a fake!

    Thanks for any of your input.

    You have valid questions. Since you are more concerned with your personal finances, determine if this bag is or is not a huge chunk of your salary. I would say that if this bag purchase is less than one percent of your salary, you may be in the right arena. Good luck!

    I have 2 ;-), but I have to admit I'm a bit lucky: I received 2 from my grandmother: a black Kelly from 1964 and a brown Kelly from 1959. I have a weakness for bags (who doesn't) and I've bought Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana bags, but I have to admit that Hermes is something else. My grandmother used these bags frequently and if you look at the state they're in after 45-50 years it's just unbelievable! I admit Hermes is very very expensive, and I would also hesitate to spend such sums on a bag, but it's bit like buying a jewel you can pass on to your daughter/granddaughter...

    OMG You have vintage Hermes? I am dying over here! and what a treasure, that your grandmother passed these onto you.

    I'm rather young, and a very moderate income (military) so I don't own bags. I just own Karos and silks of various types. I also have a clover keyring and a scarf ring, both presents from TPFers. I do like the Kelly style, and would love it in black box. I also want a Jige in raisin box!!! Otherwise, I am not obsessed with owning anything for myself, but love the brand and love looking at what everyone else has.

    Ok.. ladies.. If you really want to know the secret to starting a collection of Hermes Handbags.. This is what you do..

    1. Start to sell a few bags Lv, Gucci or fendi...
    2.Take the proceeds from the sales and purchase a small Hermes bag a wallet
    3. Gental use the Hermes item! In the mean time keep watch for a better Hermes bag and sell the first one
    to finance the second. Add a little money or sell an item that you don't use any more. You understand the system..

    The goal is to invest in Hermes! You will alway get your money back if you sell it! I promise. I started this process two years ago
    and now I own two Birkins, wallets, and other Hermes bags.. Hermes is the only bag other then Chanel that will hold it's value over time.


    S

    Ps. I do not work for Hermes.. I just covet their goods.

    Hi, my name is Robyn and I'm from Australia. I am a stay at home Mum of 2 boys (16 and 20) and Hubby works full time in Logistics. I am very fortunate to own a Hermes Kelly bag. Hubby spoilt me Christmas 2008 with it. I have only used it 3 times. I am too scared to take it anywhere incase something happens to it. Other bags in my small collection are a Louis Vuitton, a Versace and a Oroton. Ive just joined this forum today and this is my first post. Once I read through everything and work out how, I will post a pic. :)

    Hi
    I just bought a Kelly 32 black swift leather from France its cost me €5000 ($7000) this is cheap in France if you buy this eleswhere in Europe such as London, Copenhagen can cost from $10000. Waiting list is about 2 years for Birkin and 1.5 year for a Kelly. The waitting list is depend upon where the boutique you put your name on. Deposit is 20% this is in Denmark Copenhagen. In France if you lucky you can call all 3 Hermes store if they have one in stock thats mean you are lucky as its rare to have any left on shelf. This price is cheap for Kelly and Birkin for other Hermes bag I do not know the price as I only after these 2 bags for my collection. BTW the leather change the price if you looking into croc or exotic leather then its cost 2,3 4 etc more. I hope this help. However if you are interesting in this bag you can start with a vintage first and move up later on. I own Chanel, marc jacobs, balanciaga, Prada,chole..but Hermes is top them all. Thank you

    Well, I suppose I am fortunate to not have a husband! So, I buy whatever I want. I have at least 25 Hermes bags. I really do have to start selling some. I still have a Birkin still in the box from the boutique and the ribbon has never been untied. I hope it is what I ordered but I forget exactly what I ordered. I know it was a 35 Birkin in black. I get tired of say Birkins then I am on to SO Kelly and now I am on. Picotin TGM lock. Have vintage luggage as well. I think I may have a hoarding problem!
