Just for investment mainly. Like beanie babies and Barbie, if they are out of the box or the packaging is missing, they are devalued.If I owned this, it would certainly be carried. Or, at the very least, it would be on display in my home. Why buy it just to leave it in a box?
exactly! someone with probably at least a few million dollars if not more probably bought it. to them, it is like a car or boat...they would use it. i see pictures online of Kim k, victoria beckam, Kwan Chi-Lam, and some regular wealthy people carrying their himalayan Birkins. although US$300,000 is expensive for a bag, it is not expensive compared to watches and jewelry, boats, cars...etc.If I owned this, it would certainly be carried. Or, at the very least, it would be on display in my home. Why buy it just to leave it in a box?
Yes to that last sentence and you and I know that there are a lot more Himalayas out there than H wants us to know about.I am not fan of those auctions so called breaking records prices.
One does not know what a buyer's motivation might be to put their money in such a purchase.
Seller got roughly 210 000$ from that sale, so Its nothing like a good investment, compared to retail price of that bag.
