Hi everyone -- I'm new to TPF, so this will be my first time.....posting that is. So be gentle with me. I am wanting to treat myself to a Hermes Kelly for my birthday or Christmas next year, and am curious as to whether it's true I won't need to put my name on a wait list. Is this the case for Chicago (if any one knows). Who do I need to get to know (or kiss up to at the Hermes Chicago) to be "in the know" on what they receive there? If I have to wait for a year, that's fine. It will probably take me that long to save up for this special treat anyway. How much would a Hermes Kelly in box calf (black) set me back anyway? Thanks for your feedback!
