Hemes sellers on ebay

  1. I've been reading threads on this forum with great interest. I do have a question that I hope someone will be kind enough to answer. I love Hermes bags (especially the Kelly) but will have to wait a loooong time to get one.

    Question: people have written that the Birkin is a difficult bag to get. http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes/hermes-stores-no-longer-taking-birkin-orders-77425.html
    I don't know the maximum number anyone on this forum has. As a guess I'd probably say many of you (from what I gather) have less than 6.

    How is it then that some Hermes sellers on eBay have about 40-50 bags on sale, a majority of which they advertise as brand new? Where do they get them from, and how does the House of Hermes provide a single person with such a large number of hard-to-get bags?
