Yes, Stephanie's wardrobe jumped the queue, but I felt that it was important to get information to those in their last year of school so they can get a head-start on the wardrobe-building.  Education is stressful enough (as is job hunting!) without having to do it all at the last minute.  I know you understand...

It's about time I practice what I preach!  I don't have a job, and I have WAAAY more Hermes scarves than I need.  Once upon a time, when eBay was a warm and friendly place, I would have sold them there and it would have been simple.  But now, selling on eBay is a terrifying risk of money and property, and I'd rather avoid it.

Thus, each of these scarves is $250 US, shipped within the US for free.  Outside the US, purchaser will pay the EXACT freight charges - no markup.  Email me at if you wish to see more pictures, or to arrange payment details.
