I had the worst nightmare last night that the economy started to fall apart and suddenly my Hermes bags were no longer worth what they once were. Birkins were only worth $1,000 (at best) due to world financial unrest, and kelly bags were worth almost nothing. Then, you almost couldn't sell one if your life depended on it. Yikes!!! At $25k, $15k, $9k and $6.5k a pop, in all different colors...they add up to a crazy number! Yes it was only a dream and yes we all love our bags for what they are and how beautifully they are handmade and their special qualities. But suppose it was reality. How would you react??? And while it is just a dream now, what if terrorism strikes again and that really did happen. it could. does this make you view your collection any differently?
