It was another fun week in and outside of STA. I thought Wilson did a fabulous job with his first consignment, especially the way he priced his items to end with a "9" ($109, $59, etc..). Does it really seem less expensive when you buy something for $59 versus $60? He must be a natural if he recognizes the little retail tricks this early on, and I am excited that he is finally getting to consign items. Funny that even my father in law gave me some Gucci and RL items for Wilson to "help him build out the mens section."
So the Birkin swap. . .it was an exciting afternoon of fabulous fun ladies at the Grammercy Park Hotel. Michael Tonello, author of Bringing Home the Birkin, really knows his stuff. How he spotted the "faux" was amazing. And his experience being able to point out the inconsistencies really sets him apart. No wonder Jane carries her dog around in it, it wasn't real! Birkins are great but for me to spend that much on a bag really isn't practical, especially when I have two kids that still need to go to college!
I have some vintage bags slightly used and i am always coming accross items you may be interested in. I would also love to give my assistance if possible. I have always thought of opening a boutique but just have not done it. My sister was murdered and she had adopted her granddaughter and I have always thought of opening something with her (my great niece) in mind. My sister was so classy(ic) women. Do you have any advice for me? Sincerly, Yoli in Az.
