I was looking at the scarves, bags etc on eBay and wondered what is everyone's opinion. What Hermes item or items would you pay over the retail price to purchase?? Give details. I have purchased a bag from a reseller and felt lucky to pay about $1000 over retail only. A few of my cadenas were way over retail - the lion & the lantern and a few just over retail (but no longer available in stores) - the snail & harp. What are you looking for?? Would you buy it at almost any cost??
