It’s out with the old and in with the new for Kris Jenner.After snapping up two new handbags last month, the KUWTK star said goodbye to one of her very pricey Hermes Birkins this week.The 59-year-old handed over the luxury item to a company to handle the sale for her and the accessory can now be snapped up for $18,950 on eBay.As reported by TMZ Kris wrote a note accompanying the bag which said: ‘Hey Privé, I know you’ll find a good home for my baby.’Amusingly, the TV star’s letterhead features what appears to be a cougar lazing casually above her name. Quite appropriate as she is currently dating a man over 20 years her junior.The reddish brown leather tote is described as ‘Grade A’ and ‘barely used’ and has a current bid of $12,000 with 82 shoppers watching the item.
But is seems the hue was not quite to Kris’ taste as she explained to the company: ‘I love this bag, but only carried it six times. I am sure a lot of girls will understand me when I say, “it just isn’t my color”.’There is more than one someone out there for who it is their exact dream color. I know Privé Porter connects the biggest Hermes collectors around the world, and I know they’ll find a good home for my baby.’Last month Kris plugged the luxury goods retailer once again as she visited the Privé Porter store in Aspen.The mother-of-six is seen smiling gleefully as she holds up two ‘Baby Birkins’ – which typically retail around $8,000 each – and captioned the photo ‘In Aspen for ART CRUSH and discovered my new obsession…Prive Porter’s first store!!!’ ‘I LOVE my new Baby Hermes Birkin bags. So happy to find them Follow them dolls they have the best selection of hard to find Birkin bags ever!’ she added, throwing in hashtags including #blessed and #birkinparty.
The exclusive Hermes bags, named after actress Jane Birkin, are highly prized by wealthy fashionistas.Kris’ daughter Kylie received her own beautiful Birkin, unlikely to be her first, for her 18th birthday.The teen took to Instagram last month to show off the item saying ‘and it’s not even my birthday yet’ Cougar Kris is currently dating Justin Bieber’s tour manager Corey Gamble, 34.Australian golfer Robert Allenby’s bizarre season took another strange turn when his caddie walked off the course midway through the first round of the RBC Canadian Open on Thursday.It is second time in eight years that Allenby’s caddie has quit during the round, leaving the player to find a spectator to carry his bag for the remaining holes.And the row follows a major incident in Hawaii in January when Allenby was attacked, robbed and dumped in a Honolulu car park after a night spent drinking with his caddie in a bar. The trouble started at Allenby’s fourth hole, the par-five 13th at Glen Abbey, when the 44-year-old Australian and bagman Mick Middlemo disagreed over club selection for the approach shot.
