My sister is going to Paris in June and has offered to try to buy a birkin and/or kelly bag for me. Any insight for how to do this, including recommendations of good sales associates? Also, if there is no bag meeting specifications that I am interested in, is there a way to request, order, or go on a waiting list, and if so, do you have to be in Paris to pick it up, or if the order/request is made in person, will they let you leave a credit card number and address and ship to you (in US) when it arrives. I assume these questions have probably been discussed extensively already on this blog, so forgive me for repetition, I am new here. Thanks in advance for the help.
