Hello -- I'm new here! I am looking forward to buying my first Birkin! The problem is, I don't know where to start! I know that Hermes has closed the waitlist and I've heard that most of the Birkins on eBay are fake. My question is, since Hermes has closed the waitlist, where can I buy an authentic Birkin? Also, when buying online, how can I tell if it is authentic? Thanks so much for your help -- I appreciate it!
