Ok, you guys, I DID IT!!! Spoke with shopmom's SA, who happens to be INCREDIBLE!!! He's shipping a 31cm epsom plume in orange with gold hardware to me by next-day fedex. He quoted me the price of $4900, but he said he checked in the computer, and the item actually came up $5300. So he said since he told me 4900, he'd let me have it for that price. I'm a little leery about the gold hardware. Not a big fan of gold, but he told me the gold is a very light gold. My Hermes family is pretty much complete for me: birkin; kelly; trim; garden party, and now plume. SHOPMOM: I owe this all to you!!! A round of applause for shopmom, please!!!
