I just received my bag today and it's gorgeous. I paid $479 + $20 shipping for it to be shipped to Canada. And I only have to pay 12% tax on $479...no duty charge. So the total only comes to $550. I am so happy and I am not sure why I wasn't charged duty. I cleared the item myself so I saved on brokerage too. I am ready to buy another one (just kidding). The SA I dealt with from Woodbury is Mie and she is wonderful.
Here are some pictures:
Really?? ashy1, I had been charged at least 10% duty on my previous purchases on handbags.Yeah, you don't have to pay duties on purses just the tax. Gorgeous bag. Strange how I was in a Gucci store in the US and they told me they don't ship to Canada. I guess only some gucci store ship and some don't. Congrats!
