    Thanks. I posted this story in the Hermes sub-forum, but it's really better here (sorry it's a little long and a repeat for some):

    About 5 years ago I was moving out of the admiration from afar stage and into the possibility of actually purchasing a Kelly. I even went through the stage of seriously considering high quality fakes. (but, no matter how high the quality, they still didn't compare) My husband & I were in Monte Carlo and we visited the Hermes store there. We asked lots of questions about the Kelly and left. We got about 2 blocks and I finally said, "I want the real thing" so we went back and were told about a long wait list. Despondent we just strolled near the casino and ended up walking past a secondhand boutique with a Kelly in the window. Based on what we just learned we were 99% certain it was real (I joke my Kelly was once owned by a former Monte Carlo resident named Grace...) I glowed the rest of that trip.

    Once we returned to the States, I took it to Hermes, told them honestly where I had purchased it, and asked how much it would cost to have it refurbished. They examined it very diplomatically. I knew they were authenticating and breathed a sigh of relief as they sent it off to be refurbished.
