A blogger? Too quick to judge? That NEVER happens.

Hermes' side of the Oprah story sounds pretty reasonable/

Hermes probably got the inside word from the jewelers in Chicago. Oprah is notorious for scooping up handsful of jewels, taking them home, looking them over, then sending backw hat she doesn't like. The always pays very, very late for the ones that she does keep.
If I were a jeweler and I saw her coming, I would close up early as well.

FWIW, Hermes is not a jeweler, though admittedly they must sell watches.

Mostly, they sell accessories. Scarves, purses, etc. Though if you REALLY want to make the lady in your life feel like a pampered kitten, you'll get her a saddle. They started out doing fancy leather goods and their saddles still set the standard for high-quality tack. Olympic riders often use Hermes saddles.

And Hermes makes one fabulous perfume in 24 Faubourg.

It took the CSO a long time to get used to it, but now CC wears it almost every day, and though she usually buys it online as it is cheaper.

She bought a bottle in an Hermes store once when she broke her bottle the week before her wedding.

They let her in. (But the store hadn't closed)

who spend much of her childhood on horseback, though never on an Hermes saddle.
