I made a quick trip into Naples after dropping a friend off in Miami, and chatted with the manager of the store there...Carol...she said that anything in Paris/France in general is going to be (given current exchange rates) almost a third MORE than they would cost here. I specifically was looking at the ~$1800 cape cod...she said to buy it in the states...as I am going to Bordeaux, France next semester on exchange, and was hoping to get something awesome... anyway...anyone experience this? Is it true? I mean, I know the dollar is terrible...but somehow I figured the prices in France were better anyway...just because Hermes is a french company. The store is lovely, by the way...very nice.
