|Honestly the sa’s don’t know until the day before a delivery what is in the shipment, then they begin to allocate to VIP clients. Throughout my time in obtaining a very particular leather and HW combo I was taken to a fitting room and showed the birkins that arrived for the week! While being shown I can’t tell you the amount of times I heard people asking the SA for a birkin and the SA saying “sorry haven’t seen one in a while”, meanwhile I was two feet away viewing two or three options. It’s all a part of the game with Hermes. You need a relationship with an SA, not always one built on money and spending although that is the easiest way. With time if you get to know a SA and you build up a relationship that’s the key to getting what you want with out buyingÂ http://forum.purseblog.com/
To me that is quite a lot of work to do to possibly be offered the ability to buy a $9K to $11K Hermes Birkin bag. You could possibly be offered one in orange or green or yellow. A longtime SA told me at the Beverly Hills store that in her whole career she has only seen a white one twice. If you want a black one with palladium hardware you probably have to do what the person said in the threaded discussion on the Purseforum and stop by to say hello to your SA and then buy things all year round from Hermes.
Here is my issue with the strategy above:
1. You need a lot of time to visit the store regularly to just say hello to your SA. Most people work. Of course maybe if you want to buy an Hermes Birkin bag you will go daily at your lunch hour. If you do not work, do you want to spend so much time showing up at your local Hermes boutique just to ingratiate yourself to your SA in order to be given a chance to purchase a Hermes birkin bag?
2. What if your SA has a running list of VIP clients based on how much they spend with her or him yearly and you are not on the top of that list. There are people who buy and own the $185K crocodile diamond Â Hermes birkin bags, you are competing with that group of people. Will you take the risk and invest your time and money to TRY to have a CHANCE to get offered an Hermes birkin bag in some random color and random size that they will have available the week they call you? According to the SA at my local store, she said that there is also a leather shortage right now and the older craftsmen are still trying to train younger apprentices to take their places when they retire so there is also a shortage of people who can craft a Hermes birkin bag.
3. I also read online that people often do not want to lose their good relationship with their SA so they will show up when they are called in to purchase a Hermes birkin and they will buy the bag even if it is not the size or color they wanted. Then they turn around and sell their bag on Ebay or to a consignment store and wait again for that call from the SA with another bag in another color combination and size.
4. There have also been rumors from friends of mine that their SA told them that if they bought a watch from Hermes that they would be guaranteed a Hermes birkin bag and they will be called. That just seems so specific I am wondering if there was a commission bonus structure for SAs that month to sell more watches and the SA who sold the most got a bonus for being the top salesperson.
5. Previous to the new policy where Hermes took their Hermes birkin bags off the sales floor, I have seen at least 3 Hermes birkins in my local store during the times I popped into my local store. Having gone to the Hermes store maybe 12 times in the last 7 years, I saw an orange 35cm Â Hermes birkin, a blue 30cm Hermes birkin, and an exotic skin 35cm Hermes birkin that was $48,000. And they sold them every day when they put them out. Why would they want to keep them off the floor now? Their best customers probably have a Hermes birkin bag or four already, why not give someone else a chance to buy one like a Hermes newbie? I first bought my Hermes birkin 30cm when I walked in randomly one day 7 years ago (before the Hermes birkin was $10K) during only the second time I had ever been in any Hermes boutique store. It seems to me that the old policy of putting one out a day as they came in was a better policy than telling people that they need to shop around the store and buy and become regulars before they can buy a $10,000 bag. I mean it is definitely a good sales strategy to sell more Hermes products and the SAs can make more commission, but I don’t think it helps with getting more new customers if they know they have to invest in at least a couple thousand dollars in order to be given the opportunity to buy a Hermes birkin bag.
Anyhow, these are just my thoughts. If you want a Hermes birkin bag right now in the specific color and size you want – you may want to check reputable consignment stores like Portero.com now because they have quite a nice selection at the moment. And without running by your local Hermes boutique daily, you can buy one right off of the internet from Portero.com and have it shipped to your house. Just a thought.
