Hey all! I am seriously considering purchasing a Birkin in the next few years, and I want to put myself on the waiting list now, if the long wait times are true. I've heard many different rumors about how long of a wait the Birkin list is..anywhere from two years to six years. Have any of you ever been on the list or know anybody who has been on it? How long is the wait? And do you have to put a down payment on the bag to be on the list? Thank you for your help!
