Hi all, this is the first time for me to post in Hermes thread....I'm always at LV/Chanel forum. I've been buying LV, Chanel mostly, Balenciaga, Gucci, Fendi occasionally. I've always wanted Birkin since I was in high school, but I couldn't justify spending that much for 1 bag. I know it's really silly, I buy tons of $2000+ bags. I think it's time for me to try to get a birkin. We have tiny Hermes section at NM here in Michigan, and closest boutique is Chicago, I've bought a few watches, scarves, and a Garden Party Bag before....but all from different boutiques(NM, Japan, Hawaii, etc)....so I can't really build a relationship with SA. My SA at LV said she can hook me up with Chicago Hermes SA, which she did before to her other cliente and got her Croc Birkin in 3 months. If I ask her to do it for me, I have to be ready to buy when one pops up for me, and I'm not right now. Other way to go through NM Hermes, but I was told by lovery PFer it's VERY TOUGH to get one from NM....so who knows how long I have to wait..(I was told some people are waiting more than 2 years). Since I hate that much of wait(2years to forever?), should I go for the route of my LV SA to hook me up with Hermes SA? If I do, I have to sell 3~4 bags from my LV and Chanel Bags now to be ready.......does it worth doing that?? Part of me knows once I get a Birkin, I probably don't buy all "IT bags" anymore......which should be good for me. But other part of me feel that I still need variety......... What are you sweet Hermes ladies opinions???
