I've been a regular visiter of your website for the past two years now.I think I "fell in love" with Hermes on the day they refused to let Oprah come in the store because they were closed (lol). I've done a little research as I always do and I was pretty impressed !! I like how no matter how crazy the technology keeps innovating, they still stay loyal to their roots. I'm Canadian, I worked for the Bay and Holt Renfrew ( funny how Hermes was the ONLY brand Holts employees had no discounts on). I often went in their concession just to talk to the employees or look at the bags, scarves, dishes, etc. It amaze me how beautiful their products look. By simply touching them you literally think about the entire work put in it. I have expensive tastes, maybe thats why the birkin bag showing at their concession was always in my mind. Obviously I couldn't touch it nor be on a waiting list.. I really wanted one. People think I bought one because everybody has one but its not true. I truly love the birkins, specially mine. Its a bag made for me, I paid a big amount for it but it was so worth it !! Then I waited 3 months for my birkin to come home.. The waiting time was a crazy experience lol but I liked it because it made the arrival of the bag even more special. My first birkin finally came yesterday and if theres one person on this planet who understands how I feel its you ! I'm very happy and my bag is awesome !!! Thank you for creating a blog where we can all relate on our love for this art made by hands :)

Thanks for sending your photo and story. I understand how you feel now as I remember my first Birkin experience. I was driving out of town when HERMES store called me. I turned my car immediately and drove back to town to pick up my first Birkin Bag. My stomach was tight on the way to the HERMES store. I almost cried when they opened the box!. I still remember how I felt at that moment.
Enjoy your beautiful Birkin Bag. Congratulations!
