Fab Read: Bringing Home the Birkin

It's many a girl's dream to own a Birkin bag, and it was Michael Tonello's job to make that dream a reality . . . for those who could afford it.

He spent nearly a decade traveling the world in search of Birkins to resell on eBay, and once bought 140 of the coveted bags in a three month period. Tonello's forthcoming memoir Bringing Home the Birkin ($18) chronicles his hunt for the $8,000+ bag, of which Victoria Beckham is said to own 100. "I began to feel like I was a drug dealer," he said. "You know, there are people that will do almost anything to get one of these bags." Intense reading!

If someone can make a living buying and reselling Birkins and then make even more money writing a book about it, more power to 'em. Rock on!

is this fiction or non lol and while i agree 8k is ridiculous for a purse- i also agree you can't carry a fake birkin! the most i will ever spend on a purse will be for a chanel one- maybe in like 10 years lol

Sorry but a story about a man traveling the world buying Birkins? LAME! I'd rather just go to Hermes!
Looks good, I may have to pick it up on my next trip to B&N!

I got an advanced copt of this book about a month ago and have read about the first 200 pages. If you're into chicklit and fashion you should give it a try!
