It is amazing. Only after a week of waiting the SA that I had contacted called me back with good news. She had the bag I was looking for. I was in shock! I thought it was a sick joke . . . surely I would have to wait longer than one week to get a Birkin bag. I am sooo thankful. My Birkin arrived on Tuesday . . . I am hooked . . . one will not do! I am officially a junkie! Thanks to everyone for being so supportive and sharing their knowledge.
