I am headed to Paris later this month, and hope to buy a Birkin (or Kelly, depending on what's available) while I am there. I've read about the VAT, but can't seem to find information as to how to calculate the duty that would be charged on items at this price point. Does anyone have info on the duty that would be charged or experience with bringing/shipping bags back from out of the country? I checked the Customs website but it was not that helpful. Thanks!
