It seems that the wait list for the Hermes Birkin Bag is a victim of the recession, SheFinds reports. When Portero Luxury began advertising Birkins alongside text that read, "The Wait Is Over. Get Yours Now!" the SheFinds editors "called around to Hermes, and found out there is no more silly waiting list--they told us we could walk right in and get one today."
The cheapest styles still cost $7,000, so it's still quite the life decision...but impulse shopping just got that much easier.
