Fun, fun book. Michael Tonello falls into selling high-end fashion on ebay, and somehow ends up specializing in Hermes. Scarves at first, then purses - and wow, $5000-20000 purses. In a personable, chatty style, he tells the story of traveling around the world searching out these purses, and the relationships he has with the people that buy them. Very interesting stuff.
