As for the current waiting list...it is reported to sit around the six years mark. Though like Jane Birkin herself, the older a Birkin gets, the better it gets. Preloved Birkin bags are as covetable, if not more so, than a new one, as the leather improves as it builds character and stories in the grain. Scratches and scuffs aren’t flaws, but part of the journey, like our own luckily earned wrinkles and scars. While the Birkin resale market is still an exclusive club, Reluxe has quickly built a reputation as the place to buy and sell Birkins, as our relationships with global handbag collectors is respected and trusted. For the Birkin may only be a 30-something beauty, but they will each outlive us all, growing more elegant and beautiful over time, and never, ever looking dated.
