HOW I GOT HERMES KELLY FROM PARIS | Cherry Tung
J O I N T H E F A M I L Y: http://bit.ly/cherrytung
Super frazzled right now but let me post some deets of how I score my Hermes Kelly bag from Paris while it’s still fresh on my mind.
I did the appointment system for 4 times without success, so when my first try didn’t go through, I decided to visit the other 2 stores everyday. This decision turned out to be correct (at least that’s what I did and it worked)
So for all those times I didn’t get an appointment, I actually showed up at the FSH store twice anyway just to try my luck (6/30, 7/2) and see if they could fit me in somehow. That didn’t work. FSH was basically so crowded that it wasn’t pleasant to shop in anymore. So, I moved on to the other 2 stores.
George V store is usually my go to store since I knew an SA from 2 years ago. But, for some reason, George V seemed to be the busiest store out of the 3 H stores in Paris. Every single visit contained hours of waiting and rude customers playing voice messages or some random music out loud. Kinda depressing because George V is such a cute store and H shopping should be more pleasant IMO. It took me 3 visits before I could finally meet with my SA. Unfortunately, George V didn’t have BKC for all the days I went (6/29, 6/30, 7/2). According to the SA, most customers who got rejected from the FSH’s appointment system end up going to George V. That’s why George V is so crowded all the time. Since George V is already a smaller store to begin with, their stock is always really low.
For all the days (6/29, 6/30 and 7/2), I also visited the Sèvres store. I like shopping there the most, because of it’s interior design and also the fact that things are more spread out- so there’s room to walk around and admire H art. There, I met with my SA from 2 years ago. I tried sending an email to her before my visit but didn’t get a response. So, I decided to show up in the store anyway and see if I can meet with her again.
Let’s call the Sèvres store SA, “A” from now on to avoid confusion.
I didn’t buy anything from “A” in my last visit, but I got the vibe that she is also the no BS, no games type – which I like. She doesn’t try to sell my anything that she doesn’t think suits me.
In my first visit (6/29), I went straight to the “subject” asking about bags. Not surprisingly, there weren’t any, but she told me to go back on Monday (7/2).
In my second visit (6/30), I went without an appointment with her, just to admire Hermès goodies, and ended up loving the Oasis white sandals. Another SA, “B”, helped me with that, when I saw “A” pass by. I felt so bad! I didn’t know she was working that day! Kind of felt like I betrayed “A”. So, after I put a reservation on my Oasis, I joined the bag queue to see my “A”, and tried on several things with her that day. I ended up putting a hold on some scarves and shoes, since I was going to visit her again on Monday, and would rather consolidate my VAT paperwork.
