Hello all,

I've never posted before, this is my first, so HELLO! I live in CA and planning a trip to Paris in October and I'm considering buying a Jumbo Classic Flap when I go, but I was wondering if anyone has info on what the price difference is between Paris and CA? I looked around online and from one site, forgot what it was, it looked like it was a few hundred dollars cheaper than in US? But there is no tax on top of the sticker price in Paris right? And there is a VAT tax refund right, someone said 20%?

Does anyone have experience with purchasing in Europe and getting the refund?

Also, I'm worried that there might be another price increase by Oct. Any rumors?

I'm basically debating whether I should look for a pre-owned piece now or wait until Oct. and buy it in Paris. Of course, I'd love to get a new one in Paris, but just wondering what the price difference will be.

Would appreciate any opinions or help! Thanks!
