Hello! I've been lurking and learning lots of valuable info. Wow, you ladies really know your stuff! I have been coveting for a couple of years a 30cm Blue Jean Togo w/ palladium hardware. I'll be 40 this year and had hoped it would be my big 4-0 gift to myself! Even though I know it's a "young" color, I feel it matches my spirit, and living in South Florida, I can carry it year-round. Which brings me to my question: I realize it appears to be "bad form" to walk into a store inquiring about a Birkin, and although there are at least 2 boutiques (Palm Beach and Bal Harbour) close to me, I don't know any of the SA's, or even how to get on a wait list. I had thought, and please tell me if this is A) tacky or B) would be a good idea: My credit card has a concierge service that supposedly can get me anything anytime...is it a bad idea to have them contact Hermes to order a BJ, or at least get me on a wait list? Also, I estimate that the BJ is going to cost me around $7000-$8000. Is this correct? Thanks SO much!
