    Default My Hermes Birkin Story

    In December last year (2007) about 2 weeks before Christmas I was having a lunch break at Selfridges (London) and I walked into the Hermes consession... there was a lady in tears and the shop was in a bit of a frenzy. Turned out that an Hermes Birkin bag arrived and the lady buying got her credit card turned down. Therefore they took the bag away from her... SO there it was before me, an Hermis Birkin bag and the sales lady in the store looked at me and said "Would you like it? Its yours if you want it"

    I was close to flopping out my credit card to buy it but I didn't... Think it was the 35cm version and about 4000. I decided that I cold not afford it andI didn't. I regreted it ever since. (And did I just hear you say ... you IDIOT!) I do enjoy telling the story though...

    Well, today, I was at Selfridges again to collect my passport holder from Louis Vuitton (the Monogramouflage) and after that at about 6pm today, wondered into the Hermes consession... and I could not believe my eyes. Its the most beautiful 30cm orange Birkin in calf's leather. Priced at 3730 (including VAT)... I called my good friend Sally and asked if I should buy it... and Sally confirmed that the bag is indeed very sought after. So now, I am a proud owner of an authentic Birkin straight from Hermes.

    Now that I have it.. should I sell it? I will never use it.... I'm 38 year old gay guy who works in a bank. Do you think its worth just holding on to it? Its a credit crunch in the City... appreciate your views.

    Cool Re: My Hermes Birkin Story

    Oh, for the love of everything that is holy in the universe...must you torture us like this? If I could, oh how I would buy this from you! Someone out there--no--a bunch of someones out there are looking for that exact bag in that color. And, you never know, Hermes could find itself in some child labor or crazy financial scandal. Hey, the world could end tomorrow! Sell it while you can and treat yourself to something awesome that you will get to use. :stuart:

    KEEP IT!!!

    Oh sorry, got a little too excited there...

    I mean, I think you really should keep it, from what I've noticed, the resale value only goes up on those once they're discontinued.

    But I could be wrong...

    It's beautiful, but if you're never going to use it (because you're a guy) why would you buy it? If it was a gift for someone and you had an extra $7000 just lying around then I can see why you would buy it. I dunno I guess I just have a different opinion than everyone.
