Have you ever travelled to another country just to buy a certain thing?

I'm curious because I'm doing this now! There's no Miu Miu here so I'm travelling to Italy to buy a bag. Of course I will buy a lot more things there (well not in Miu Miu sadly, I mean in Italy) hopefully, but that's the main reason.

Anybody else done this?

^^ Can I ask you where you live? I'm just curious how far you travel from.
I think I wouldn't go outside Europe just to make a spending spree.

Not to another country yet, but I do want to go to Paris just for the shopping! The most I've traveled is to another state.

I would if I could. I considered going to Paris for a bag but scrapped that idea. It's too impractical and wasteful. Maybe when I'm a billionaire, I will consider it :P. For now, shopping in San Francisco or Chicago would have to suffice.

Living in Canada, I don't have access to the same stuff when I lived in the States so now, whenever my parents come to visit, I have a list for them:

Act Fluoride Rinse
Orbit Gum
Secret Clinical Strength
