2020 Note from yours truly: Welcome to the Reading Room. This is an ancient artifact from the early days of the Purse Forum. Many things have changed at Hermès since this list was complied. I have tried to update it (September 2020) but I have also left some of the older threads because there is still some valuable information and input from our wonderful, amazing members - some are gone but certainly not forgotten. Enjoy!


Are you looking for your first Birkin or Kelly?

Lets start with current prices for 2020.

Now that that's out of the way, here are some threads you can read through to get you started!
This FAQ covers a lot. But this is an active forum, I have added some more threads on popular topics to help.



Be sure and read this important announcement as well!!!



Colors, Styles, and More

What colors do they come in??. What's out there???


Birkin not your thing???
Bowse the reference Library for other bag styles...


Curious about other things....like leathers??? Ready to do your homework???


hmmmm...wondering what the down side is?


Quota Bags? What's that all about?


What are the current quota bag rules and limitations?

Thanks for looking!!!

If anyone has comments or suggestions to improve the Reading Room, PM me or post them here....


Special thanks to @acrowcounted for adding some new threads to the list for 2020!

:flowers:


A final reminder, from our dear jag. This is the first post in the announcement thread from august 08, and it seems a good idea to make sure it is part of this thread too....

This forum is incredibly lucky to have numerous, outstanding members who generously devote their time and knowledge to authenticate Hermes finds without any charge. This is a privilege that the rest of us enjoy, not something that we are entitled to!

It has come to my attention that some of our authenticators have received requests to privately authenticate bags for transactions that completely violate the rules of the PF. So, I must remind everyone of the following:

1. There is no buying/selling on the PF outside of the MP. It's simple. Don't do it. It could result in your getting banned from the PF!

2. DO NOT contact a member for private authentication for a transaction that is already prohibited on the PF. Doing so could also result in your getting banned from the PF!

3. If you want something authenticated, then please post it in the Authenticate This thread.

Any questions- contact me. Thanks!:tup:
