Holy smokies I just saw the prices of the scarves online now at $375..it hit me like a ton of bricks when was I checked on a Black Box kelly 28cm which is now over 8K and I found out a Birkin is over 10K now with the tax...Yikes! Now I am looking at my bags in a new light..wowzers I didn't realize how much it would be to replace them!!! And boy, I am glad I snatched up the last of my small leather goods..before the price increase...yikes...Even my scarves are being looked at as more valuable...to my eyes..perhaps because I realize....I will be buying less H...this year... What the heck..why is the increase so much? What is the idea..are they doing it just because they can? Certainly it's not because beef prices are on the rise...(belive me I know this fact) Any thoughts?
