Hi ladies. I'm new to Hermes and havent own any H products yet. Since joining tPF I've grown attracted to the Birkin. Now I just feel like I can't live without one. Here is my situation: I've worked very hard in the last few years and saved up some money, so I can afford a Birkin, either at the store price or the highly-inflated eBay price. But now I'm a stay at home mom to my twin baby boys, I thought I should save my money for their college fund, especially now that I'm staying at home most of the time, I really don't need such a nice bag. But who am I kidding, I can't get pass one day without looking at the Birkin pics thread. So hypothetically if I were to get one, do you ladies think I should try my luck to get on a waitlist at a H store or just get it off eBay? My dream bag is the 35cm BJ Togo which is selling for about $13k on eBay and I guess the retail at H store is about $8k? Or you actually think I should just scratch this whole I-need-a-Birkin idea? Also, should I start my H purchase with something small first, like you ladies have suggested in other threads? Am I jumping the gun here? Sorry for these ignorant questions. To me Hermes is something very out of my league so I'm very nervous... Any comment/opinion is appreciated. Thanks!
