I am interested in learning how many of your birkin and kelly bags were bought (1) from Hermes stores; (2) new from resellers; (3) 2nd hand. If you can humor me on this one, I know it was asked before but not exactly in this detail. I suggest a running count, I will start:

(1) Hermes: 2 birkins/1 kelly
(2) New from Resellers: 0 birkin/0 kelly
(3) 2nd Hand: 0 birkin/0 kelly

Yes I know this is silly but as you guys can probably tell, I am fascinated by numbers and statistics of all kinds. I bet some of you are too!

I'll be honest, I could not afford to purchase all of them new from the boutique. It took me several years of saving and also with selling off some of my LV handbags that I didn't use & Chanel clothing that I didn't wear.

I purchased 1 Birkin from the Boutique, 1 from a respected reseller under retail price. I purchased my 3 Kellys under retail from respected resellers.

Thus far we have:

(1) Hermes: 4 birkins, 1 kelly

(2) New/reseller: 1 birkin, 3 kellys

(3) 2nd Hand: 0/0

Japster I can relate to the "too expensive" issue -especially now. my birkins are several years old and, ironically, in retrospect seem reasonable.

is there any reason you only care about the source of kelly and birkin bags? i noticed that crochetbella politely responded to your post with the relevant info on the hermes bag that she has and you ignored that.

I certainly didnt mean to be impolite - the reason I asked about these two in my initial post, is that these are the only models that the stores historically have maintained waiting lists - traditionally hard to find bags - thats why I was interested in how people have acquired those two.
