Let me show you how to get the most lusted after bag on the planet. A Hermes birkin on a budget.
I am a handbag shopaholic but these days after losing my millions it is hard to justify buying a new one, also they are virtually impossible to acquire; for an ex Hollywood stylist there is a two year waiting list at Hermes even if you are a celebrity. Remember the Sex and The City episode where Samantha drops Lucy Lui's name to get hers?
Getting savvy when you are addicted and it is the only thing I will say I am still addicted to, you have to come up with a clever way to get what you want with the budget you have and do some handbag investigating.
Here are my top tips and where to source that dream bag for less.
1. Buy New and The Joke's On You.
Take a look at Posh Pawn the glamourous Pawnbroker in the heart of London's Hatton Garden where women swap their handbags for cash and you can pick them up.
2. Can't Pay, They'll Take It Away.
Take a look at consignment store websites like Pandora in London's Knightsbridge. Shush at the Wellington, St Johns Wood. Secondhand sites like Deuxieme and Vestaire will keep you updated when they receive items that match your wishlist.
3. Cash In Your Handbag.
If you want it but you cannot afford it, try swapping what you have, those designer bags gathering dust in your closet, the mistakes, and get onto the Designer Exchange They have stores in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Madrid and are extremely straightforward to deal with. And if you take a swap instead of the cash you get a way better price. This amazing buy, sell, swap, designer handbag exchange business has several stores in Europe so the stock is always changing. They will take your old to you designer handbags and swap them for something new to you and my top tip for getting the desired Hermes Birkin dream bag without spending a penny.
