    You WON'T be disappointed, trust me! Go to the one in Roswell if possible, it's the original, they opened one in Buckhead a couple years ago I think.
    Their 3rd store was SUPPOSED to open here in Charlotte by this years end but it may have been delayed because of the pandemic.
    It ain't open here yet and not much time in 2020 left so I dunno.

    Thanks for the recommendation on the Roswell location! I have a load of scrap silver to take to Elemetal next time there's a price spike and thought we'd do lunch at Fogo while we're waiting for them to process it.

    If you run across them at sales grab them, James. Haven't sold one for less than $300.

    I can't tell real from fake but I know some of my friends buy these special scarves and make a bundle.

    They're pretty easy to ID, Pearls. Check for hand rolled and stitched hems first. If they're machined move on. Another quick fake check is if the diacritic is missing over the second "e". Other things too, but these are the most common give aways. Both of these are fakes that were mixed in with authentic Hermes scarves.

    @James Conrad, sorry you wasted your time looking at these sales. You know some of the furniture goes to Brunks or further north in VA or NYC. Next time I'll warn you not to look!
    @sassafras, thanks for the info on the Hermes. Thought most were beautiful.

    Are you going to the sale, @patd8643? That one would be so much fun to shop. :)

    I didn't make it today - too many things to pack and ship. May try tomorrow, but since my ability to walk is limited, if there are too many steps, I'll be SOL.
