Just as a large number of top tycoons continued to check into Buckingham Palace, Ye Chen was dragged by Xiao Churan and arrived at the busiest shopping centre in Jinling.
Since she had received an invitation to the master cla*s at the Rhode Island School of Design, she had always felt, in her heart, that she owed a huge favour to Kerri Vest.
As there was not much going on at the office today, Xiao Churan dragged Ye Chen out on the street with her, intending to pick out a gift for Kerri West.
Ye Chen asked Xiao Churan, “Honey, have you thought of something to give her?”
Xiao Churan nodded her head repeatedly and said, “I have already thought about it, I plan to give her a Hermes handbag, I have seen her interview before and it is said that she personally likes Hermes very much and has a hobby of collecting Hermes bags, since this is the case, then I might as well throw my hat in the ring and give her one, it will also show my sincerity.”
Ye Chen smiled, “In that case, then when you get to the shop later, choose a more expensive bag, as for the money, you don’t have to worry at all, hubby has plenty here.”
Xiao Churan said, “No, honey, I’ve saved up a lot of money recently, let me do it myself, otherwise, I’ll feel bad.”
Ye Chen didn’t insist too much and smiled, “Then you should do what you can later, don’t buy too expensive gifts.”
Xiao Churan smiled sweetly and said, “I have already looked on the official website, there is a bag called Bo Jin series, nowadays it sells best, the price is not too expensive, if you don’t choose very rare materials and workmanship, it is probably about 100,000.”
Ye Chen nodded slightly and said, “A bag at this price point would be good enough.”
The two then arrived at the entrance of Hermes’ shop, where a long queue of several dozen people was already outside the door.
According to the staff outside the door, this was because there were too many customers inside the shop, and since they had a one-to-one sales service in the shop, all the sales were now taking customers, so the shop just started to limit the flow.
The two men waited outside the door for half an hour in order to queue up to enter the shop.
Half an hour later, the security guard outside the door said to Ye Chen and Xiao Churan who were at the front of the queue, “Please come inside, our guide will come to serve you right away.”
As he was saying that, a young man with a warm smile on his face walked towards the two of them with quick steps.
When they met, the man introduced himself, “Good afternoon, my name is Vivian, I’m your guide, what would you like to see?”
Xiao Churan said without thinking, “Hello, I want to buy a 30cm Birkin bag, I wonder if it’s in stock?”
The shop a*sistant said with a smile, “Haha, lady is very discerning, our Birkin series has always been a super best seller, there are a lot of registered users, but the number of arrivals per issue is very few and far between, so if you want to get the bag as soon as possible, you may have to buy more things in our shop and upgrade your membership level, then the better your chances of winning will be! ”
Xiao Churan heard this and asked with a surprised face, “Isn’t it directly at the counter price of the bag?”
The guide put away her smile all of a sudden and said in a tone with a bit of sarcasm: “The lady should be shopping at Hermes for the first time, right? In our shop, there is no bag that is sold at the counter price, more or less, you have to purchase some other accessories, otherwise, it would be impossible to sell it to you.”
Xiao Churan then came back to her senses and opened her mouth to ask, “Need to buy some other accessories? This is what the internet says about matching goods, right?”
The guide said rightfully, “Yes, that’s the rule now if you want to buy a Hermes bag, no matter which country you’re in.”
Xiao Churan asked tentatively, “Then how much do I need to match the goods if I want to buy a Birkin 30?”
The guide said contemptuously, “The 30cm Birkin bag is always super popular, you are not guaranteed to get the bag even if you match the goods, of course, the more you match the goods, the higher the priority, the higher the probability of getting the bag, whether you can get the bag depends on whether your rank and priority can rush to the front.”
Ye Chen didn’t really like this kind of hidden set up by the guide, thinking back to the last time he bought Hermes for his wife as well as his old man, that guide had bluntly said a specific number of 500,000 for the allotment, although Ye Chen was very upset with this kind of allotment, he still preferred to be more direct compared to it.
So, he opened his mouth and said to that guide, “Don’t beat around the bush, just tell me straight away, how much do I need to allocate to buy a Birkin 30?”
