This is so untrue. Can't believe the SAs said that. Good grief.I asked this question at the Madison Ave. store last week,and also at my store.
They both said that while there are people who buy to re-sell,there just aren't THAT many bags. I was advised that many of the bags are not authentic, and to be wary of Ebay. I also left the Madison store the Japanese Brand Mall catalogue. They said that these are not authentic Hermes,and they had a good time looking at it. At the Madison store they said that they do try to watch for people that they suspect of buying just to re-sell.
That is exactly what I was thinking!well if you have contacts all over the world and so access to houndreds of stores it is fairly easy to get the bags kwim? also i do know of h vvips who buy every bag they get offered and the women flip it for a little profit aka pocket money
about the coments of h about resellers /japanese reseller stores and authenticy of course they say that they are not sure yada yada as they are 1. against resellers 2.) want your business 3.) don´t want to encourage you to go that route
Rumor #10What I really want to know is when they walk in the front door, do they have security escort them out? Or do they refuse to allow them to make purchases? God, that would be awful.
