Send Us A Photo Friday | I Received My Bag!

Dear Chris from My Birkin Blog,

I saw this Birkin bag on your blog. I liked it but I had a lot of doubts in my mind. I started writing to you. You answered my question immediately. Every time I wrote, you responded with a very calm, polite, and nice tone. I am very nervous about wiring a hugh amount of money through the bank because I was afraid of online fraud.

I decided to purchase your bag after emailing back and forth. Before this, I spent years on ebay trying to get a perfect Birkin bag. That was the only place I knew to get a Birkin off market then. For some reason I don't trust some sellers. The emails were quite blank with take-it-or-leave-it attitude. Some sellers can't guarantee the bag's authenticity even they charge a lot of money!

After following your blog for a while, I was totally confident of your knowledge and dedication for the Birkin Bags. I decided to purchase this bag. 3 days later, the bag arrived safely. I totally love it- My first Birkin bag! The bag is in a perfect condition with the scratch protection still on. The box is also in a perfect condition. 

After a long email, I have a story to share: Two years ago, I traveled with my husband on a business trip to France. I saw a beautiful bag in the HERMES store window display and went inside the store. I pointed to the bag and said I wanted to look at it. The salesman rowed his eyes and said: "It is for display only and not for sale. You have to put your name on the waiting list and the waiting list is full." Then I learned that is was a Birkin bag- the bag is so hard to get.

After that, I went to New York, Miami and LA. They also told me the same thing. Some sales told me I needed to spend a certain amount of money if I want to be on the waiting list. 

My Birkin Blog, in your store I can immediately buy a bag I like. I don't have to wait so long for a bag and don't need to beg the sales. You also told me you love Birkin bags so much that you will fly to Japan or Paris to view a new bag from the window. 

My Birkin Blog, thanks again for this transaction. I will recommend you to my friends and coworkers. It is a lovely bag and I will cherish it. I will send you more photos once I start using the bag. I love it!

My Birkin Blog Says:

Dear Mary,

I am surprised getting your confirmation of receiving your bag this way. I am fluttered! Thanks for purchasing from My Birkin Blog. I love Birkin bags and started to collect them about 8 years ago. That is why I started this blog about 4 years ago and in September 2012, I opened my online store through this blog. My background is in luxury goods. I worked for Louis Vuitton many years. Part of my job was to educate customers how to spot a fake item. I also believe that during the transaction both seller and buyer should do their homework and communicate. A successful sale will make both buyer and seller feel great about this transaction, not just the buyer or the seller.

Thanks for all your support. Now I have some funds by selling the bags to use for other things to enrich this blog. For example, the face to face interviews with people who collect Birkin bags. My dream is to conduct a tour to Paris visiting the HERMES workshop. I want to see how the craftsmen make Birkin bags! I bet they have a lot of stories to tell.

Enjoy your Birkin bag Mary. Thanks again for the transaction.
