How did you find out about the ivorymongers in Paris? Did you fill out a CITES declaration on re-entering the US? 1. Our hotel was nearby and we stumbled upon it on a walk. 2. Err . . . "maybe" would be the most truthful unincriminating answer. Perhaps on a future visit you can hit Maison Bonnet. Their tortoiseshell cufflinks and collar stays are sold at Arnys and Halary. Maison was too far away from anything else we were interested in, and I didn't want to drag my wife all the way to see a bunch of stuff I'd probably not want to pay for. Arnys, however, was very cool.
