I have noticed on the message board about members travelling to other Hermes stores out of their usual Hermes location and seeming to have no problem obtaining options of Birkins to purchase. I don't live near a store, but I am curious as to how this works. Does the fact that you have a birkin with you make you more of an eligible customer even though they may not know you? Do you get a reference from your SA at your Hstore to see a certain manager at the other store? What about when you go out of the country? Do SA's just come up to you when they see you have a Birkin with you and offer you bags? Or do you need a reference? Or do you just blatantly ask to see one if one is not on the floor?
