Hermès, Is that you??

This afternoon, I went to Goodwill with one of my work friends.  After striking out in the clothing section, I wandered over to the purses.  I was about to give up and call it a day, when I noticed this purse staring right at me:

I had to pull out my phone and google tips for spotting a knockoff Birkin.  I'm pretty sure this isn't a real one, but I couldn't pass it up. I mean, what are the odds of an authentic Hermès bag ending up at Goodwill for $8? 

I'll probably let myself pretend it is real.  Perhaps a wealthy older couple retired to travel the world, and donated all of their fancy things to Goodwill.  The Goodwill staff knew to put the Coach espadrilles in the glass case for $50, but hadn't ever heard of Hermès so they just slapped the $8 tag on it and called it a day.  Right?  That sounds believable, right??  Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and pretend it's a real one.
