Hi Ladies! I've been based in Hong Kong for almost a year now & I must say every bag fanatic would certainly enjoy this city. They have all the "it" bags available...particularly Birkins. Not from the Hermes shops though...but from those small shops called "Paris Station", "Milan Station" & "VIP Station". They sell second hand & brand new bags from Chloe, LV, Gucci to Hermes. At first I thought they're "knock offs" but they actually have the Hong Kong Tourism seal that certifies them as seller of authentic brands. So far, I have bought my first Balenciaga bag here. These shops I've mentioned have all the "it" colors, sizes & exotic leathers of Birkins!!! It makes me wonder how they got it when most of us waited 2 years just to get 1. I also found out that the price of the Birkins is 20% more than the retail price. So, for those of you who simply cant wait to get your hands on a Birkin bag & want to shell out 20% more of the retail price just plan your next vacation/holiday in Hong Kong. I'll post the photos of the shops mentioned tomorrow. Hysteric P.S. Anyone out there know how these shops manage to get all these Birkins???
