I featured this Etsy seller before (“Kiss Handkerchief“) but I could not click away from this item I came across in her fab shop.
Plus, any seller that mixes hot handbags with cocktail napkins makes me embarrassingly happy.
Hermes’ to-die-for Birki bag is so sought after by women worldwide that the Huffington Post reported a two year waiting list for buyers.
“Two years for a bag?”
No way… I’m thinking: “How do I get my hands on one?”
The chic bag was named after British actress Jane Birkin in 1984 and prices start at about $9,000 and rise to $34,000 for a crocodile skin bag. Um, yeah… I know…
Here’s a photo of Katie Holmes with a Birkin so you get the idea of how stellar these bags are:
Ok, ok… so until something really big happens (like I find Etsy shopping is a paid profession), I won’t get my Birkin bag anytime soon.
Anyone hiring for a personal Etsy shopper?!
In the meantime, Etsy’s AvrilLoreti has a better idea… avoid the waiting list and indulge in a set of Birkin Bag cocktail napkins. This set of four cocktail napkins feature the Birkin bag in a variety of colors. Plus, the $26.00 price tag is something my budget can stomach.
The folded size of the napkins is four and a quarter inches squared, so that would be eight and a half inches square when the napkins are open. They are made from a cotton/poly blend.
I guess they’ll have to do until I get put on that list. Ha!
