Yeah, I don't think the birkins stick around for long at my local hermes (costa mesa). In fact, I've never seen one on the floor. Which made it very difficult to purchase my first birkin without seeing it. I determine the size based on a customer's birkin. And color based on the leather on an agenda.
Hey! SCP is my local store, too! I actually saw a black 30 Birkin in some sort of exotic skin there right before Christmas, in the case up front on the right. Sold within 24 hours, though. I was surprised it was even out in the case and not sold!
No way! I guess I missed it. I've been out of the country until today. Haven't had time to stop by Hermes. Last time I was there (a month ago), there was a black 28 kelly. Any chance it's still there?
Okay, I probably shouldn't even be lusting over it. My new year resolution is one H bag a year.
