New to this forum... Where to buy a Birkin?

  1. 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!
  2. Hi and welcome! We have a huge Hermes reference subforum that has answers to all of your questions. Spend time reading a lot of older threads and you'll be on your way! Good luck finding your first Birkin!
    There ARE real Birkins on eBay. We have authentication thread on the Shopping subforum if you see an auction you're interested in.
