I live in Minnesota--land of 10,000 lakes and no Hermes. I have never seen a birkin in real life. I have the OK from dh to buy a birkin--woo hoo!! I've considered buying one online from different reputable sellers, but I don't know what clemence feels like compared to togo, 35 vs. 30cm and so on. So--first question. Is there anyone in MN that is open and trusting enough to show me a birkin? I work in Mpls. and live in St. Paul and would be willing to meet anywhere. Second question--I'm going to Hawaii in May and have read that they often (relative to other stores) have birkins there. Any truth to this? And, if they did have one, would I need to know the super secret password to get one? Thanks so much!
