What is your most off-the-wall adventure in getting your hands on a Birkin?
The entire “cat ‘n’ mouse” game i played out in Athens, Greece. I felt like i was a character in a novel (laughs).
What is the most outlandish “favour” a client has done for you to ensure their Birkin-wish was met?
Loaning me their extraordinary Palm Beach mansion for a week. I checked out the house on Zillow.com and it was worth tens of millions of dollars!
What is the most expensive Birkin you have sold?
It was a 35cm croc Birkin in a shade of yellow, it sold for about $48,000.
Who bought it?
Someone we’ve all seen on the cover of magazines more than once. I can’t share her name for privacy purposes.
Where did you find it?
Who was the most obsessed Birkin collector you have encountered?
I had a client whose husband was the president or CEO of a fortune top 50 company. She bought Birkins like most people buy toilet paper.
Do you think you’ll be in the buying/selling industry forever? What are your future plans?
I’m done Birkin’ng. It was great fun and truly a rollercoaster ride but exhausting at the same time. We have an option on my book for a film and I’ve written a children’s book based on my two cats, Gala and Dali. I also have an idea for another book I’d like to write.
You’re now in the vibrant city Barcelona. Describe your daily life in Spain.
Most mornings I go to the boqueria (the farmers market, which is just up the street from my home), to buy that evenings dinner. The boqueria is on Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s famous pedestrian walkway, and it’s great fun seeing thousands of people from all over the world experiencing the beauty and quirkiness that is Barcelona. I truly believe that Barcelona is the new Paris!
