hermes bag replica After she lost her job, Angela Rivers found herself in need of some quick cash. Instead of heading to her bank, she delved into her Brooklyn closet. An avid shoe and handbag collector, she took out her cherished chocolate brown Birkin and went across the river to Manhattan, where she had an appointment in the chaotic diamond district at a pawn shop called New York Loan Company.

replica hermes side bag On West 47th Street, New York Loan Company visitors edge past fast-talking gold hawkers, jewelry hustlers, murmurs of Yiddish slang and ever-present police to enter the gleaming 35-story International Gem Tower, where the pawnshop is on the third floor. There Ms. Rivers planned to use her handbag for a loan.

“As soon as I walked into the beautiful building, I knew there was going to be no hanky-panky,” said Ms. Rivers, who was initially skeptical about her visit.

replica hermes bag 2019 In the marble lobby, visitors are fingerprinted and pass through an X-ray scanner before ascending in a highly secured elevator. “I walked into that office, and I thought, this is the real deal,” Ms. Rivers said. “The level of sophistication was totally different from what I expected.”

replica hermes belts “I’ve expanded the business to two locations, and we also do a ton of art now, and we do flatware, we do wine — and handbags,” Mr. Tabach-Bank said in his California shop, a few blocks away from Rodeo Drive. He is finalizing plans for a third location, in Chicago.

replica birkin bag price Mr. Tabach-Bank finds that his New York clients are more likely to be businesspeople than those in Beverly Hills. “We get a lot of women in the financial community as well as men who bring in their wife’s or significant other’s handbags,” he said. In California, the pawnshop draws in the Hollywood set with actors, producers, and screenwriters looking for fast cash.

“We get socialites and a lot more divorcées in Beverly Hills than New York for some reason,” he said.

replica herme bag Mr. Tabach-Bank said it’s not uncommon for people to take their Birkins, or other valuables, in and out of the pawnshop, using them like a credit card, whether it’s for an investment opportunity, for paying off business fees or simply because they are hard up for cash. “We pride ourselves on acting quickly,” he said.

“People often call and ask: ‘What percentage can you pay on the retail of an Hermès handbag?’”

The condition is everything, he said. Does it come with a box? Does it have the dust bag? Does it have the clochette and the key?

“That’s very important,” he said. “And what color is it? Some people like the staples — the beiges, the browns, the blacks. And then here in Beverly Hills yellow, chartreuse, purple — they do very well.”

replica hermes birkin price Mr. Tabach-Bank, whose sister, Lauren, works at T: The New York Times Style Magazine, will loan against pristine Channels as well but prefers Birkins and Kellys (the Birkin’s little sister named for Grace Kelly). They are worth roughly $4,000 to as much as six figures for hard-to-find models and have a high resale value. (According to a 2016 research study by baghunter.com, an online marketplace for high-end handbags, Birkins have gone up in value by 500 percent in the last 35 years — a figure that outpaced the price of gold.)

kelly bag replica Considering their covetable, and rare, status, it’s not surprising that there has been a spike in high-quality counterfeit bags. “I bought a fake, and if you haven’t bought a fake, you haven’t been dealing in enough bags as far as I’m concerned,” Mr. Tabach-Bank said. Now he is extra cautious. He examines the stitching, and he identifies specific stamps and can often tell a real from a fake simply from the weight of the bag, which he emphasized is heavier than it looks.

Ms. Rivers didn’t risk buying a fake. She picked up her Birkin at an Hermès shop in Paris as a gift to herself for her 50th birthday. And it’s a gift she’s not letting go of.

“That bag was my pride and joy,” she said. “In the next couple weeks, I absolutely plan to retrieve it.”

replica hermes canada Hermès is deep in the business of “creating desire,” as the brand’s CEO puts it, and the Birkin bag is the company’s most precious possession. Seeing the need to pull back the curtain a bit, Purseblog recently opened the floor for its community to share their own tales of trying to snag one of the elusive, über-expensive bags. Here are some of the best tips we picked up from the 100+ responses:

1. Build up a reputation by paying for many other things over a long period of time before asking about a Birkin.

replica hermes birkin bag price 2019 “The first time, I hadn’t built up as much of a relationship with H as I have now. I went in, bought a scarf and a bracelet, and at the checkout, I decided to ask if it was possible to see a Birkin (oh how naive I was). They told me that they didn’t have any in stock and I would have to be put on the waiting list. So, I put my name on there and informed them that I wanted a 40 cm in black Togo with palladium hardware. And then I waited. And waited. And waited. Every once in a while, I would stop in and maybe buy something small, like a perfume or an agenda refill, just so I could check in and see if they had any in stock. I think it took around 18 months (and thousands of dollars later) before they finally said “we have a Birkin in the back.” They informed me that it was black chèvre with gold hardware, and it was the 35. I asked to look at it, and I decided to get it. I’m not one who matches the hardware of their bags to their jewelry, so I decided to just get that one. And I liked it a lot. I used it regularly until it was floppy and distressed.”

2. If you don’t have a personal connection to a sales associate, try to work around the brand.

birkin hermes bag replica “I bought three for my mom using the American Express Platinum Concierge. I called and told them what I wanted and they put me on hold, called a few stores and within an hour each time I was in the store picking up the bag. I’ve been an AmEx holder and concierge user for a while so that helped. Either way, it’s a game to play to get the bags.”

3. Or, just woo an unknown sales associate.

hermes birkin replica “One day I came to Hermes rue du Faubourg in Paris to see what new colors they have for Hapi bracelet. I picked up a bamboo (bright green) bracelet and a cashmere scarf (actually it’s for my mom). I didn’t expect to get a bag that day. The SA who was with me was so nice, it was the first time I met him, we talked a lot about the new season colors and how I love them. Before we go to the till, I told him it will be lovely to have a matching bag with my bracelet. He told me to wait and see if he got something. He checked his computer and disappeared. A few minutes later he came back with an orange box (super excited the moment I saw it!!) and asked me to go upstairs. It was quiet there. He opened the box and there it was, Birkin 35 in bamboo with palladium hardware. I forgot if it’s too or Epsom. The bracelet I bought was in gold hardware though. I tried it on and although it’s a bit big for me i decided to get it (and cracked my credit card).”

4. Look “deserving” of the bag.

replica hermes belt “I bought my Birkins from a fabulous SA. She did tell me when I initially asked how to purchase one that you need to be “deserving”. If I wasn’t so interested in getting one I would have been turned off. I was also able to customize a Birkin which was a cool experience.”

5. Or just go to Las Vegas, where it’s impossible to judge how much money people have based on their looks.

replica hermes picotin “I wanted to mention a little “trick” I learned in Las Vegas from an SA at Valentino last week. He said they all treat customers better in LV because they literally can’t tell who has the money or not and quite a few of the people who shop at those stores have never been to one before. He said if they were as snooty as other locations they would literally lose business. After visiting a few shops, including Hermes, I think he was telling me the truth as I found all the SA’s at all the stores to come right up and ask me if I needed help. And I was carrying a very non-designer bag! Long story short, if you want to buy a Birkin, try one of the (3, I think) LV stores.”

6. It helps to have a husband.

replica birkin bag hermes price list “The bag came in two weeks before my niece’s wedding and we had already invested a great deal in the wedding. When we (my husband and I) finally saw ‘her’ I asked for a day to think and was told politely, if you don’t get the bag now then you’ll wait for another 2 yrs to qualify. I said before we spend $11k ( the money finally hit me) I said, I need 24 hours. So 24 hrs and a sleepless night later we went to the store. It was then I decided no I couldn’t do it and when I turned to find my SA to give her my final decision, I was handed the bag. My husband decided the bag was timeless, made by hand, could be resold and knew it would make ME happy.”

7. The bags that reeked of weed can work out in your favor.

replica hermes bag 2018 “I was completely surprised when my SA offered me the chance to place a special order for a bag and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I was able to choose everything on my Birkin – size, exterior and interior leather color, the hardware color, and stitching – I waited about 9 months and finally got to enjoy my gorgeous Hermes bag. I was offered another [special order] and this time chose the Kelly. Unfortunately, after another long wait, I was one of the unlucky ones who received a defective, stinky bag. My boutique handled the problem quickly and in the end, I was allowed to place another [special order] and received a perfect Kelly a year later.”

8. Just go to a store and ask.

replica hermes birkin bag price “I really do not understand why it is so hard to get a Birkin. It just seems like a turnoff to me. I guess my mom was one of the lucky ones since she got her first Birkin the first time she asked. AND SHE WAS WEARING OLD NAVY FLIP FLOPS AND TIGHTS ON THAT DAY. She bought 2 scarves and a Kelly wallet. After paying for those she asked for a Birkin and my mom walked home with a BIG orange bag in her hands.”
