    Is chanel classic flaps or any bags cheaper in Paris? If so, by how much?
    How hard is it to find one? Which store is the best one in Paris?

  2. Jillybean bought a flap in Paris with was a few hundred lower there
  3. Hi,
    is chanel cheapest at paris? i might go there next week :heart:
    can anyone tell me how much is a luxury bowler in paris? thankss!
  4. I'd love to know too. If you go, please let us know what the prices are in euros. Thanks so much.
    BTW, should you find what you want in Paris, don't forget to get the VAT (value added tax) back at the airport so you can save even more!:p
  5. Hey gals, do you know if it's cheaper to buy Chanel in Paris? If so, how much cheaper? and do they carry a lot more styles? I may go to Paris this fall so wanna get an idea ahead. Thanks!! :smile:
  6. I would also love to know that we will be in Paris in either june or july.Maybe then i can get my first chanel
  7. about 20% cheaper with the tax refund.
  8. hi everyone!
    i will be traveling to paris in september. i just want to know if the prices are better there. should i buy the bag here in the states or should i wait till i am in paris?
  9. Hi! Don't know about bags, but I've just posted about camelia ring price difference: here in France it's the equivalent of $670 all taxes included (which is before taxes around $535) whereas in the US it seems to be only $395 before taxes I believe! Good luck! You can always see once in Paris if it's cheaper, and if not buy it once you're back in the US. Good luck!
  10. chanel is cheaper in the US than in france?
  11. Apparently for some stuff... I was reading through the forum though an found the same wallet as the one I bought 1 month ago in Paris. That one was more expensive in the US. I guess you have to check with each article.
    The thing that you have to keep in mind though, is that if you buy in France you have tax back and our tax is 20%. Also it seems that we have more stock here.
    I think it's due to the fact that French women don't really buy Chanel (except me :p)
  12. i don't find the prices for chanel in paris to be really any much of a steal to be honest. what you do save on is probably the tax refund that you can get (19.6%). as for the stock, it didn't seem particularly impressive either. all in all i felt a little underwhelmed when i visited the chanel stores in paris, even the main one.
  13. thank you so much for the information. i've been so confused lately as to if i should buy the bag i love here or wait when i am in paris. i really appreciate everyones advice.
    can i ask why french women don't buy chanel?
  14. I don't think it's that much cheaper over there. But the hassle of bring a new bag in the US is alot IMO re cutsoms, etc. If you're carrying it, it draws attention to customs agents and then they will drill you about it and you have to pay duties, etc.
  15. The thing about visiting a Chanel boutique in Paris is the experience. Last time I was in Paris, I was offered a cup of coffee while browsing through the shop's entire collection of chain belts........ The sales were top notch and were prepared to give you sound advice. One of them told me straight away that I was too young to carry heavy or shiny gold chain belts. Then another said I am too small for a jumbo reissue. You came out of the boutique feeling absolutely fab.
