Get your waiting-in-line-for-a-long-time shoes ready because Hermes is hosting another sale. This bi-annual event usually draws huge crowds the first day and then eases off into the weekend. If you’re planning on going tomorrow, for the first public day, you can expect to wait in line for about two hours.
The sale runs through Sunday and past experience has proved that waiting a few days can reduce your wait exponentially. Shoppers who attended today’s by invitation only “private sale” report back that there were more leather bags than ever. Bags range from 40% to 60% off retail and include, Bombay, Vespa, Evelyene, Trims, Omni-Bus and many briefcases.
For the first time there is a great selection of enamel bracelets that are 40% off retail. Then there are the standard ties, scarves and old ready-to-wear.
