curious to know how many of you have made a first Birkin or Kelly purchase through a reseller or have solely bought from resellers? I have to tell you, my mind seems to never be at peace! how did you finally come to accept your new beauty as authentic? share your secret with me! because my mind just refuses to rest and i realize im driving everyone crazy. *the bag came from a very reputable seller who i did a ton of research on/googled, etc. *the quality of the bag is wonderful *no one, not even those i pm'ed in private had a bad thing to say about the reseller nor heard their name and the word "inauthentic" ever used in the same sentence *my initials were embossed on the bag by a craftsperson at Hermes *the SA's there were all complimenting the bag, unprovoked. *everyone's seen pictures *all the things i thought were weird are just normal Birkin/Hermes things *when i wear it i feel high/giddy, even. So you'd think I'd calm the down, right? Ok, here's what goes through my mind as i compile this calm, factual list above: -they don't really know the seller. hardly anyone's bought from them on this forum. -i could be fooling myself with the idea of quality -the craftsperson must've been asleep on the job -the SA's don't know anything -the craftsperson in NYC will likely tell me what i seem to WANT to hear, which is that its not real. WHY do i want to hear THAT?? am i nuts?? anyway, so now i've hammered it into my head that i need to go see this Claude craftsperson in NYC to verify one more time that my bag is authentic beyond a shadow of a doubt. And i've devised a way of doing this by asking him if he can service my bag without even telling him what for just to get his reaction. i'm probably the worst customer a reseller has ever had. and i'm sorry that im so nuts about it. but surely theres got to be someone else out there who feels the way i do. Advice, girls??
