You just never know when you'll run into another Hermes collector. There I was in a small furniture store in rural Kentucky, when one of the associates came up to me and said " I love your Hermes bag ! " (I was carrying a 32cm rigide Kelly.) Turned out she has a 35cm croc Kelly and some H scarves. We had a wonderful conversation about Hermes and other common interests (we both collect 18c European porcelain). Now, I've found a new friend near my new home. Life sometimes gives us wonderful surprises !
