i've been considering -- and planning to bid on -- a lovely blue box birkin 35 on eBay; start price is US$ 6250. well, some of you may have noticed that i've been sniffing out vintage pieces on the 'net -- i've found a black cuir de russie HAC 45 for Euro 4000, which is about $5200. both are in excellent shape, and i have no reason to suspect the authenticity of either. the HAC is large, about 18x18 -- there are times i can use something that big for work, but i suspect i'd get more use out of the 35. on the other hand, when will i ever see that HAC again? BUT, if i decide i don't use it enough and need to sell it, it might be tough to get rid of . . . opinions, ladies? i'm vacillating (however that's spelled) in the worst way . . .
