Developing SA relationships from afar?

  1. I don't live near an Hermes flagship and I've read that you need to develop a relationship with a SA to get on the waiting list for a Kelly. I'm a total shopping newbie when it comes to this, so is there a "Hermes Shopping 101" guide for dummies like me?

    I do want to avoid paying the markup for instant gratification, so I guess that's why I'm asking. I'm also searching for vintage places to get my Kelly. Yikes, the hunt is getting a bit obsessive.
