He tried to tell us, in broken English, that there was a limit of one something or...
I recently came back from a one week vacation in Paris. It was my first time in Paris and besides seeing ALL the touristy places I managed to get a little shopping in. I though I'd share some of my shopping experiences there. The first stop for any tourist shopper is either Printemps or Galeries Lafayette on Haussmann blvd.

I haven't tried them before, but seeing as I need a new suit or two I was going to give them a try. Anybody with experience with them? I'm especially interested in the level of quality and the prices. Thanks.
