in general will it sell that day? Now the caveats include assuming that it is a size 30 to 40cm in a color that is fairly normal and something desirable. (a travel HAC in orange epsom is an example of something that could take weeks to sell)

I saw a couple Birkins at the store when I was in NYC in April. A Vermillion 30cm that was snatched up and I forgot what the other was. I also picked up my Rouge Garance Birkin that week but it was not on the floor.

I have seen a couple Birkins in Chicago that were not immediately bought. Especially Ostrich or an exotic seems to stick around longer.

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. :yes: 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.

Aye.

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.

Nope, no black Kelly that I saw. There is a two-tone Lindy that makes me want to turn tricks on the corner:drool:, but no Kelly. Sorry!

All the Birkins I've ever seen on display were exotics....but today, I saw the first NON-exotic Birkin on display at SCP. A dark green color.

For Birkins and Kellys, I think the non-exotics in highly coveted sizes do not stay on display long.
