Hello everyone, So I'll be leaving for France and Italy this Friday (so excited!) for one month and I plan to buy a Neverfull MM and a Speedy B over there. I am not really into new LVs (I prefer the vintage look) but since I'm going there, I couldn't miss that opportunity to get those at a better price than in Canada/US. Besides those would count as souvenirs right?! lol Anyway, my questions are: 1. Would you recommend that I buy them in France or Italy? Price-wise, it seems like France is slightly lower than Italy (based on the LV website) but tax-wise, would it be easier to get them in Italy or France? I read recently that for example, Greece has some tax exemptions for purchases over 250 euros (thanks to the BOBAErose). Is there anything similar for France and Italy? 2. Also, anyone who purchased LVs from Europe and brought them back, what did you do with the boxes? I want to keep them but since I'll be doing around 6 cities across those two countries, I am not sure I want to bring them around with me, so I'm thinking of sending them by mail back home to me :s 3. Would a Neverfull MM and a Speedy B fit in a carry-on standard-size suitcase? I plan to travel light since we'll be moving around a lot. I just don't want to damage the bags... 4. I'll be going over the tax exemption of $800. Would I have to pay $$ for the additional amount only? (Ex: If an item costs $1200 and I have a max of $800, would I pay $$ on $400 only?) 5. I plan to get my bags stamped at the stores. Any idea how much time it takes in France or Italy? Can I get the bags back on the same day? Any help would be SUPER appreciated. Thank you everyone!
