I got my very first Birkin 40 cm Vachette Ardennes in medium Brown this morning. Thanks to a fellow TPfer my dream of owning a brikin came true. I had just bought a beautiful 32cm Blue Roi Kelly only a month ago and for some reason I just kept wanting a birkin. Thanks to the wonderful people on this forum with helping authenticate for me I am a very happy camper. Will take pics as soon as I can figure out the camera on my new cell phone.
