Hello! Though I've never posted before, I am a regular reader of the Purse Blog and an occasional lurker on this forum . I've cycled through many different handbag designers. At the moment, I favor Bottega and Nancy Gonzalez for the fine craftmanship and the absence of logos. Now, I covet an Hermes Birkin . I've spent some time reading through the Hermes threads educating myself about the brand. My *question* - do I simply walk into my local Hermes boutique (mine would be King of Prussia, PA) and place an order?? Does anyone here have any experience dealing with the King of Prussia shop? I'm by no means a regular customer, just a few bracelets & scarves over the years. My sense is that the process (buying an Hermes bag) is vaguely similar to waiting on a queue outside a posh nightclub hoping the bouncer will pick me and let me in. Will the Sales Assistant deem me wothy? LOL. Still, I'm intimidated. Any guidance on how best to proceed would be greatly appreciated Thank you!
