Bringin’ Home The Birkin

Dear Diva Readers,

She’s been obsessed with the idea of owning a Birkin ever since, but the $9,000 upwards to $120,000 price tag stands in her way!


Today, Jen’s “Bringin Home The Birkin” … well, almost!

Diva Guide Jennifer writes:

“For those lusting after one of the most sought after accessories on the planet but without the patience for the year-plus waiting list, why not try an Antiques Diva solution? There are many stores in the Marché aux Puces de Paris in Saint-Ouen that specialize in vintage Hermès, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton. Just be sure if you go the vintage route to buy from a reliable Antiques Diva approved source as Hermès will confiscate any copies and you will be out the cost of a new car”!

“I myself fell in love with this red Birkin but I fear my budget means I will have to make do with my orange “faux-kin”. A chic new substitute – a tote bag that has the Birkin screen printed on it! At least I can carry my flea market purchases in fun style”!!

“Both can be found at the Marché Serpette at Pierre L”.
(Pierre L, Marché aux Puces de Paris-Saint-Ouen, Marché Serpette, Stand 16, Allée 3).

Bonne Shopping,
