We did not chose to write about the most expensive handbag in the million dollar range.  Our thought is you can keep adding diamonds and gold to anything and its value will reach that level.  We are bringing it back a level or two, and our website will most likely not participate in that level of product.  At least not now.  Who knows what the future will bring?

The very high worth product has proven to be a sound investment.  Hermes in particular holds its value or rises in value, there is nothing wrong with that.

We are bringing it back a level or two to the $3,000 – $4,000 range.  It was still hard to write that number.  When we got involved with handbags as a retired couple, the idea that a handbag could cost that much never even entered our minds.  Curiosity brought us to do a little research on the top most expensive handbags.  It appears that the Hermes Birkin is at the top of the list for quality and value.

I see the Hermes Matte White Niloticus Crocodile Himalaya sold for $384,285.  We had to know what was involved to achieve that price.  It goes without saying that the Hermes Birkin carries and incredible reputation.

It sounds like, if our research is correct that one craftsman starts and finishes each handbag.  There is no assembly line necessary here.  We had to research Niloticus Crocodile leather.  It comes from a crocodile in the Nile River, who would have thought!  The hours involved in processing the the leather are long to achieve Hermes requirements.

We wondered if the leather quality of a $384,000 handbag was any different than that of a Hermes handbag priced in the $20,000 to $27,000 price range.  Extra value must be added by adding diamonds, and precious metals, to increase the cost to $384,285.  We are certain the actual manufacturing quality would be the same.  Whatever the answer is the Hermes is a proven winner with some of the very best purses and handbags available.

The bottom-line for us here at, we see the opportunity to slowly and carefully develop an online business  working with a product we truly love and enjoy.  As it grows there are many people and organizations that will benefit.  Hopefully we will be able to to work with this level of product in the future.

We are happy for those who can purchase handbags in that price range.  It certainly would be a great goal in the future.

That’s it for now, it was fun.
