Can someone explain exactly how all the customs stuff works if one decides to purchase anything Hermes at an international store? Say I found something in Paris, and am coming back to the STATES.... 1. do I declare the bag with customs? 2. is the Hermes Boutique suppose to give me some paper work on the bag to declare? 3. Do I just bring a yucky bag there and then use the NEW H Bag when I come home to the US? 4. Am I really saving money on a bag and how much? 5. Do I pay taxes? And what is this VAT tax (what does it mean VAT?) that I save? I'm so confused and need some more KNOWLEDGE. PLease HELP? Thanks in advance!! and SORRY IF THIS HAS BEEN POSTED ELSEWHERE OR THE QUESTIONS HAVE COME UP BEFORE!!
