When I recently visited the Hermes stores in Cannes, Nice and Monaco, the SAs told me there are no birkins and kellys available at all !!? And they have closed the special order/ waiting list since the list is too long. I was so disappointed and felt rejected! What is going on?? Is secondhand bags my only options now?!

Cannes, Nice and Monaco are very popular tourists destinations; it is like going to Paris, you have to be there at the right time to get what you want. If you visit during holiday seasons, it might be even more difficult.
Good luck :smile:

If you are in the south of France, try Marseilles and Aix-en-Provence (especially Marseilles).
Cannes, Monaco and Nice are towns where many rich people spend their holidays and it's very difficult to get a birkin if you are unknown at the Boutique.

Marseilles (the town where I live) has a beautiful store and not so many tourists or rich people ;);)

Good Luck...

When I was at H Cannes last Nov/Dec, I was offered 2 birkins. But I must say the SA is truly a very nice gentleman.:smile:

I dito everything that is being said. Don't waste your time in any of these 3 stores. There are a lot of Hermes stores in France with nicer SA, less crowd from the many Festivals, and Cruise ship Tourists. The Riviera is a very particular area and not a reflection of "France" - if I may. So, you need to be either very lucky or extremely rich to get anything other than a pair of shoes and a belt. Ohhh and I don't think every other women in South of France is wearing a Birkin. Those must have been Tourists. :flowers::flowers:
