It's many a girl's dream to own a Birkin bag (and some boys too). Fashionista Michael Tonello spent nearly a decade traveling the world in search of Birkins to resell on eBay. He once bought 140 of the coveted bags in a three month period! Tonello's forthcoming memoir Bringing Home the Birkin ($18) chronicles his hunt for the $8,000+ bag, of which Victoria Beckham is said to own 100.
"I began to feel like I was a drug dealer," he said. "You know, there are people that will do almost anything to get one of these bags."
