Bringing Home the Birkin : My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World's Most Coveted Handbag
For more than twenty years, the Herm�s 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.

I highly recommend this book, especially for the handbag shopaholic like myself!!!! I hope he writes another book sometime, he is a true story-teller!!!
