Can any of you shed light on the "one-birkin, one-kelly" limit a year policy? I have heard different things but here's what I have gleaned: General policy is that you cannot buy more than one B and one K a year, in any store in the US, subject to the following exceptions: 1. Anything that gets put on the showroom doesnt count toward your one a year limit. 2. Manager has the discretion to sell more than one a year to a customer, if its a good customer, no sorry make that - great customer, or if they are slow on sales that month, or if its one that they have blown through the request list and no one has claimed. 3. Not clear whether special orders apply to the limit, but the weight of authority says yes. If any of you can confirm, correct, expand or clarify, please do. While this is usually a not a consideration for me, as even one of any Hermes bag a year is an unusual event for me, I just bought a kelly on Saturday in DC (a 32cm retourne gold togo with palladium hardware, like birkingirl's I think) and wonder what this is going to do for my pending wish-list request for a black 28cm. My sales associate was a little ambiguous as to whether this year (inotherwords, December) is possible. No, I am not a GREAT customer, merely a GOOD customer - I am no Posh Spice to be sure - Old Spice maybe?) but I suppose, there are the other factors in #2.
