What is this site for?

There seems to be a misunderstanding to some people about what this site is for. As I simply state on the right sidebar, I am posting my notes from years of studying and collecting Hermes.

If friends and strangers come by and find information here that is useful, that’s great. I am glad that I was of help.

If you’re a stranger and come here looking for info on a specific carre and dont find it here, TOUGH COOKIES.

There are currently over 90 different entries currently on this site. Right now, I am working on about 40 more entries at the same time. If everything goes according to plan, there will be over 200+ entries here before I am through. For each entry I write, I have to go through 60+ Hermes catalogues, a folder of hand-written notes from my travels, my own Hermes collection, ten disks full of pictures, Google, and then compare my research against some databases in case I forget anything. Needless to say, this is a time-consuming, and mostly thankless, activity which takes up a lot of my free time.

So please do not go all over my site asking me “do you have any info on this scarf so that I can sell it on eBay?” I AM NOT AN ANSWERING SERVICE. If you want info on a scarf that you cant find here, there are forums where you can go for the answer. Go to either The Purse Forum or HSCI. Click on the link.

If you want me to write a page on a specific design in the far, far future, leave a request here. I will take it under advisement. There is no guarantees, however. Frankly, there are some designs that I have no interest in and never noticed anything about so there might be nothing for me to say. Hence, no entry.

    i just wish to compliment you on your wonderful site. For some reason, I never saw it before. I just happened to be on a quest to identify the dates that go with many of the Hermes ads I have collected and found you. I, too, have been an avid Hermee collector for over 35 years and have virtual albums of many variety of categories. My favorite items are black and white Hermes scarves. If you should have any interest in seeing my treasures, do let me know, and if I can ever be of any assistance to you, I would be delighted. Kind regards, Barbara
