As with anything Hermes Does, the Rodeo charms are not as easy to buy in the store as they once used to be. Occasionally, you will see a Rodeo pop up on the website, it’s definitely rare but it’s been known to happen.
If you want a Rodeo and don’t want to have to go shopping in the store, then I definitely recommend turning to secondhand stores. I love shopping the preloved market, and i was able to find some incredible Hermes Rodeo’s from TheRealReal and Rebag.
You may be wondering, well I don’t own a Hermes Bag, can I still get the Rodeo Charm, and the answer is of course you can! It is true that it’s most commonly paired with a Birkin or Kelly, but that doesn’t mean it can ONLY be paired with a Hermes Bag.
I’m all about investing and wearing what you love, and especially mixing and matching different designers. So yes, you definitely can wear the Rodeo Charm on a non-Hermes bag.
