I'm so new to Hermes and loving reading all the posts here.... Thank you very much for such a great wealth of knowledge. After looking at all these pictures, I think I'm falling in love with Birkin. I'm a Balenciaga girl and now branching off to Chanel (Coco Cabas to be specific). I never thought I would like Hermes until I start reading this sub forum. You guys are great! I think that I wonder about Birkin, beside colors, HW, leather, is how the bag retains its value and how easy it is to sell. I know that Birkin is the most sought after bag and it's one of the most expensive. but when it's time that the owners need the fund or want to sell, can it be sold easily and at what price? I look up on eBay for listings that end (search Hermes Birkin 30). All Birkin bags were unsold, maybe because the sellers try to make profit out of it? I buy my bags for my own use and enjoyment. However, I often think at the back of my mind that I make a good investment choice and if I happen to need money for emergency (knock on wood), I don't lose out much on these bags, KWIM. Some "IT" bags just lose 30-40% of its valuve once you walk out from the stores. Also, I read from the posts that Birkin 35 is quite heavy. What about Birkin 30? How heavy it is what compare to Balenciaga or Coco Cabas? Thank you very much for all your help. I hope I'll be part of H family soon!
