WOW!!! :wtf: My eyes are really popping after watching an Hermes 90cm silk scarf (Madison Avenue) sell on eBay for over $1200 tonight!!!

Ture, it is a special issue by Kermit Oliver and, as I have posted before (in guccigal's thread),

http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes/most-collectable-hermes-scarves-of-all-time-139044-3.html

I will be the first to admit that this is my most cherished scarf, but gosh, $1200? Any other scarfies out there as stunned as I am?

Near an Hermès, thankfully!
WOW! I LOVE Kermit Oliver scarves, they are all I wear for the most part, but that is way too much for me.... :amazed:

And Madison Ave does appear on eBay from time-to-time. I think I would have waited.

Maybe someday they will re-issue it....I can only hope!

Remember, it only takes two to get a bidding war started.

Funniest thing is that being a self-confessed scarfie, this is one scarf that does absolutely nothing for me. In fact all KO scarves do nothing for me.

Well, more money for fiiishiiies!

At that price I doubt it will be worn.
Apparently scarf collectors have been quoted refering to their scarf collection as their retirement savings plan..

Jokingly or not, I think I prefer more traditional ways of retirement investing. And I prefer to actually wear my scarves
