Hey ladies I've been thinking lately - "What if the opportunity to place a special order for a Birkin?" was to come along. Let's say over the next couple/few months I spend time talking to my SA, building a relationship, etc., and I am offered the chance to place a Birkin order - fat chance, but hey, it's worth thinking about. I've been spending a lot of time here and on the Web sites of authorized resellers, looking at colors, sizes, leathers and the like. I've decided that if I were to place an order for a Birkin, it would be 35cm, gold, togo or clemence leather with palladium hardware and white stitching When I read threads here about other PFers placing orders for a Birkin, they are often given the standard "one year" wait time. However, I know that the timing can be a crapshoot. On average, what do you guys think is the average wait time? Right now I don't have all of the money saved, but in a year I more than likely will have it saved. Is it all right to assume that it will take anywhere from 8-12 months, so that I can budget accordingly for savings? I want to have as much in the piggy bank as possible Does this make sense? I'm just thinking randomly and trying to see how I can budget savings for an entire year (or maybe a bit less) from the time that I can hopefully place an order. TIA!
