I was hoping someone might be able to answer my question...I'd really like to get a jumbo white caviar flap and was thinking about trying to get it in France. I'm based in London, but I have a friend who lives in France, so I was thinking I could perhaps call one of stores in Paris, buy over the phone, and have them send the bag to my friend. I'd then wait until she comes to visit next time or I go to her (delayed gratification...how grown-up!). I figure this way I could beat the September price rise, and save some pounds thanks to the bag being a little bit less expensive in France. Do you think a shop assistant would sell me a bag over the phone, take a UK credit card for the purchase, and send the bag to my friend in France? It seems a little convoluted, and I know if I was a shop assistant I'd probably be a bit like "You wanna do what?" Any input would be greatly appreciated!
