This is the most exciting news since the military diet said that we can eat ice cream for dinner. The fact that a Birkin can be a better investment than stick or gold is actually not as surprising as I though it would be.
It has been popular since its first creation in 1981. The Birkin was conceived after a famous actress by the name of Jane Birkin who complained to her passenger on the plain that she couldn’t find a good weekend bag with good leather to enough pockets. Little did she know she was sitting next to Hermes’ boss Jean-Louis Dumas.
The Hermes bag has out grew the S&J by 14%. The theory is that because it is such a desirable item and is used as a token of wealth, the value could not diminish. They only make a couple of the bag every six years and they do not advertise them. So, if you happen to get your hands on one of them, then maybe you have yourself an investment. This commenter is surely indecisive on what he should do.
Would you invest in a Birkin?
