Summary

For more than twenty years, the HermÈs Birkin bag has been the iconic symbol of fashion, luxury, and wealth. With a fabled waiting list of more than two years to purchase one, the average fashionista has a better chance of climbing Mount Everest in Prada pumps than of possessing this coveted carryall. Unless, of course, she happens to know Michael Tonello. . . .With down-to-earth wit, Michael Tonello chronicles the unusual ventures that took him to nearly every continent-and from eBay to Paris auction houses and into the lives of celebrities and poseurs alike-on the road to becoming a successful entrepreneur and Robin Hood to thousands of desperate rich women.
