Hi Everyone,
I am having an existential dilemma. I bought a bleu roi 35cm ostrich birkin several years ago from a reseller and I am debating selling it because I have only used it twice and my husband thinks that I should put the money to better use. I think my dilemma is that it would be great to have more room and more funds but that color and size will not be made again. Should the blue bird stay or go??:thinking:

perhaps the question is why you are not using it? i honestly feel a bag should be used. if it doesn't suit your everyday use or even special occasion use...then perhaps, your husband is right. having a bag that only sits in the dustbag is kind of sad.

also, it really depends on what you (and your husband) wants to use the funds for and how much you need the funds. hopefully, this helps! good luck with your decision :smile:

Dont use sell
Dont suit sell
No more love sell
But before you decide think carefully
Will your dh still support for your h fund in future
Or no love no patience for bag nonsense
I won't sell if he's not going to buy in future haha
At least you still holding one
I dont care
Secondly
Ostrich does not come in 35 anymore for many years
35 on exotic is super light
Ostrich are very sturdy and durable
Not delicate at all
Blue Roi is very elegant color
Handles not obvious if darken
Thats the only setback bout bird very prone to oil and sweat

Nevertheless
Family love and needs still come first
Luxury are gd to have but not must

If it were me I would not sell it because it's a rare bag. Even if I can't or won't use it often. Unless I really really need the money for something more important. Maybe there's other bags you can sell that's not as special so you can have the funds or won't feel guilty keeping it? Just my two cents. 👍

Does you DH have plans for the funds if you were to sell your ostrich? If not then Manet hold on to it asthe price will not go down.

Is there a reason you don't carry it? Take it out for a spin and maybe you can find a way to get it into rotation.

Our lives change all the time, what didn't work a few years ago can be perfect now. If you don't need to sell, it would be a pity to reduce you options.

Don't sell it if you're not sure. 35 is not offered anymore and you can always sell it later on if and when you will be sure to do so. JUST USE IT!!!!

as much as i love birds and i keep searching for 35cms if it just does not go well sell because the bag is not really living its true purpose nor is it truly making you happy.to me the momment a bag proposes a dilema one must sell.................

Sell if you are not using the bag. A B35 should be a bag you can use a lot, i.e. it's not special occasion due to its size, so if you're not using it as a daily bag, I would sell it.
