Dear Birkinophiles, I would like for you all to search your souls(and not your pocketbooks!). It was just a thought that crossed my mind. IF the Birkin did NOT have a waiting list and if it didn't have a 9000 US Dollar price tag, would we buy it or be quite so obsessed with it? I have been asking myself this question for the longest time. now don;t get me wrong...heheh, I have two birkins, both 40cm, a HAC 45, the Herbag and Garden Party; and have just placed an order for another Birkin 40. So I'm barking-mad about Hermes as well. I would like to hear what the rest of you might have to say.
