Branded Goods cheap in Paris?

I had heard from my dad's friend that Paris sells cheap branded goods, is that true?

I don't know. Tell me who is your dad's friend, and I will see if I can verify that this is where you heard it.

I don't know if this is true, but I do know that XXX is still a sarcastic jerk!

I "salted" this posting with sarcasm.

You "peppered" my response with anger.

I'm glad that makes you feel superior.

Neither one of us contributed anything to the question, because it is basically un-answerable.

What the heck are "branded goods"???

is that, like, black market or stolen, or something I've missed altogether?

I don't think that "branded goods" has any specific meaning. I would think that a Tupperware container and a Gucci jacket are both "branded goods".

I suppose the term you were going for, Sharon is "knock-offs", when you said "take-offs". Knock-offs are illegally counterfeited goods of inferior quality, intended to ressemble their name brand counterparts. I can't think of any reason to refer to them as "branded goods".

gotcha, xxx.

that makes more sense, huh! I couldn't think of the proper term...lol

I remember when I was living in Lisbon, I was wearing (real) italian "Police" sunglasses, and the little cafe guys kept INSISTING I needed to buy a pair!!! (I kept trying to explain...duh...) (really, I have much better stories!)

Ironically, I just happened to buy this pair of sunglasses before I left for my "year abroad" because I thought I better buy healthy sunglasses for the long haul... I didn't even reallize that "Police" was a chic brand ...

so...what was my point?

Karen, I guess it depends what you are looking for...? For instance, Chanel liquid makeup is about $50 in the United States, but is only $27 US in France. I don't know why, but the Chanel lipsticks & nail polishes are the same price in France as they are in the US. anyway, that was just one example....depends what you want.
