A Hermes Birkin Bag Just Set Someone Back $100,000
Believe it or not, Baghunter has managed to sell a pre-owned Birkin handbag for a staggering $99,750 !! The online consignment marketplace offers a wide range of Birkin bags, and apparently an anonymous customer has been so impressed by the rare elephant gray and black Bi-Color Porosus Crocodile Special Order Hermes Birkin in size 35, that he decided to pay almost $100,000 for it.
A Birkin this rare doesn’t become available every day, which should explain the eccentric price-tag. In pristine condition, the bag – as many others – is considered to be more of an investment than a fashion accessory, perfect for collectors of exclusive fashion items.
The trusted re-sellers and collectors that Baghunter collaborates with understand this, which is why these incredible products sell for such outrageous amounts of money. The value of Birkin bags will steadily continue to rise by up to 10 times more than today’s market prices in the next 35 years, which should explain why people feel the imperious need to invest in such a product.
And have we mentioned that Baghunter has also listed an orange and black special order Birkin in size 25 just a couple of days ago? That bag should break records as well.
