well, right before I went to NYC I bought this beautiful 32 black box kelly from a nice person on ebay so I would have an Hermes to carry into the store when I went to try and score a birkin. With second thoughts because of the weather I left it at home and went empty handed. I met up with a reseller there and bought this beautiful almost new 35 black birkin in togo with GH. Now I was ready. I had the name of an SA thanks to the very lovely hermesgroupie. It was sunday so they didn't open until noon and I arrived a little early and didn't want to hang out with the other 10 people waiting for the store to open ( I was the only one with a birkin though and they were all looking). I walked around a little and then entered the store at 12:03. I asked for the SA whose name I was given and was told he was with a client but I could wait. I saw him pulling out a beautiful gold 35 birkin and then told the lady how lucky she was to walk in off the street and buy a birkin. Oh no, this could have been my birkin but I was 3 minutes too late. When he was all done, we met and he was so nice and sorry there were no birkins left. I bought this beautiful scarf and my agenda refill and said I would come back on my last day in NY. I came back but he never made it in to work. No one knew where he was. But a very nice SA took my cell phone # and said he would call me if he showed up. An hour later I got the call, He was there. So I went back to Hermes and we talked but the only birkin was a 30 brighton. I left and he wrote down what my dream birkin was. An hour later, I called him to say, I would take the 30 blue, since I couldn't leave NY without my birkin. He told me to sit tight, and be patient and my birkin may just turn up. I went home and the very next day he called and said my 35 gold with PH was in the mail. Now I am complete (for now) and in celebration my husband decorated one whole tree in the front yard with all orange lights. Thank you HG, I woudn't have gotten this gorgeous brand new birkin if it weren't for you.
