Baghunter, the luxury retail company, has recently concluded in a study that the Birkin has increased in value at 14.2 percent a year, reported by Teen Vogue.
Here's what Baghunter compared in the study: the S&P 500, gold, and the coveted Birkin bag. The company measured over a period of 35 years and came to the conclusion that, well, Birkin wins. The bag has never shown a downward decrease in value, making it worth more than both gold and the S&P 500!! Now that is something that is music to my ears!
So, yeah, um, if you were hoping to invest in a large sum of gold in the future, it might just be best to grab a Birkin instead. Plus, who doesn't want a Birkin, right?! That's right — a Birkin bag, or possibly the smartest investment ever; it goes by both names now.
