Fortrove has been selling gorgeous, pre-owned Hermes Birkin bags for many years, and we're always asked, "why a Birkin?"

Well, for starters, they are the perfect utilitarian bag for a trip, a lunch date, or a night out. Simply, they go with everything!

But beyond their beauty, status symbol, and general chic quality, they are also a financial investment. While gold stocks can be volatile, Hermes Birkins have steadily increased in value. From 2001 onward, their value has increased by 25% (Baghunter study). It has better returns than a stock. And it's easier to display.

Birkins are hard to get, and the waiting list for a new one is miles long. Their scarcity contributes to the resale market, and that's a selling point if we ever heard one!

Evelyn Fox of Luxury Daily also explains that: " While the luxury market suffers during worse economic times, the ultra-luxury market is impervious to economic factors that can affect other industries, such as high-street retail and stock markets."

Impervious, gorgeous and handy? Check.

Why a Birkin? The answer is clear.

Our stock of Birkin bags are certainly dwindling, and just in time for Mother's Day, we have the perfect classic colors.
