How old were you when you got your first Hermes?

I claim no originality with this thread. There's one up on the Chanel forum and I thought it was really interesting. How old were you when you got your first Hermes bag? How old were you when you got your first Kelly or Birkin? I'm 20 and am nowhere near buying a Hermes, but my mom is contemplating getting her first Birkin in the near future (she's 49), perhaps in June when we go to Paris. If I get into Yale law, I *may* beg for a Kelly, as I think that would suit me better, but even then, I don't know if I should get one. Anyway, rambling. How old were you?

I got my first Hermes scarf at 30 (at the mothership - now that was a great experience:yahoo: ) and then did not think much about Hermes for another 10 years. Got my first Kelly at 40 when I rediscovered Hermes!

nerdphanie, we've had this thread in the hermes subforum before, but it's always nice to pour some salt on my wounds by hearing about you "late bloomers.":rolleyes:
30 for my first hermes purse. 33 for my first hermes scarf. still at that original tally.
Im 37 and do not own any Hermes~!:nuts:

"Late Bloomers" I am 37 and just got my first a few months Evelyne. My parents had bought me a scarf in Paris a few years ago. I am now, thanks to PF and surfing around from the Chanel and Balenciaga threads (my past passions) to Hermes, completely addicted to Hermes. I am dreaming of my first Birkin. I am selling off more bags that I will never use again to fund it. My husband is understanding but only to a certain degree. He did buy me a beautiful enamel H bracelet for Hanukkah but I need to exchange it for the GM size. He does not see the need to ever spend the money on one bag that it will cost to buy a birkin. I disagree!!!!:hysteric:
