Hi, I just found this forum today and have spend about three hours (!!) reading it today. I don't own anything from Hermes yet, but am planning my first shopping trip there this summer (I'll be in France and Germany in July). I saw a face towel in the window of an Hermes boutique in Vienna about two years ago. Are these still availble and at what price? The one I saw was about 30 if I remember correctly. The website doesn't mention them, so I hope it doesn't mean they're not sold anymore. Another thing I'm thinking of buying is the red berry twilly or one of the pocket scarves. Many of you have mentioned the booklet that shows you how to tie scarfs and I want to know if I can ask for it when buying one of these? There are no H shops here (in Finland), so I can't have a look at the merchandise, except what they show on their website. Do you have any other recommendations for a good "first item" from Hermes (as you've probably guessed, I don't have a huge budget)? Finally, I'm terrified of walking into the store!! What if they don't let me in? Or answer any of my questions? How horrible, humiliating and depressing would that be! How should one dress when going into a Hermes shop? I KNOW it's silly to worry about such things, but I do.
