My SA called me yesterday to come in today to pick up my new Birkin. He has three colors for me to pick.. Got to the Hermes store today, he led me to the changing room with three orange boxes. The first two boxes were not sealed... First box He opened the first box, it was ultraviolet..I was very dissapointed, the bag looks a little sloppy..it seems like someone leaned on the bag and left a dent on the side of the bag..so I kindly said I don't like the color..(but in fact I do) Second box He opened second box..this time it was some kind of orange/red. I did not ask for the color..at that moment I was just so shock at the condition of the birkin..it really looks like a used bag. I simply said I don't like the color (far from the truth...i just hate the idea of spending so much money on a Birkin that looks used) Finally third box.. I don't care what color it is, all I know is I will take it because this box was sealed. He opened it..and Taaa Daa it was Rubis with GHW! And all four legs look straight..no dent..no nothing. I said this is the one. (will do a reveal on another thread) I was very lucky that I have the option to pick the colors..just wondering have this ever happened to anyone else...were you offered a not so perfect Birkin..or worse did you end up taking it?
