When Moda Operandi and Heritage Auctions team up to bring Heritage's catalog of amazing pre-owned and vintage Hermes bags to online luxury shoppers everywhere, my heart always skips a beat. You never know what kind of rare gems are going to be contained within the sale, but there's always something (and usually a lot of somethings) incredibly rare and totally gorgeous to covet. The bright red (bougainvillea, to be exact) Hermes Crocodile Birkin above, for example? Where else are you going to find that? Certainly not in an Hermes store, unless you're a very special customer indeed.
The price points on these bags are high, of course, with the most expensive piece ringing in at $74,500. If that sounds like it's within your budget, you can shop the sale at Moda Operandi through August 27. If spending five figures on a bag is more of a fantasy for you, check out our image gallery of the beautiful bags for sale after the jump, and don't forget to sign up for our Hermes Birkin giveaway before it's too late - you could have some Hermes in your closet a lot sooner than you think.
