I'm terribly interested in what all of you brought back from Paris. Of course, the experience is the most important thing, as I found out in London. Since I couldn't bring back anything but one antique book, I took pics with my iPhone of books in museum shops so I could order them later here in the U.S. I brought back postcards, 2 bottles of perfume (1 Penhaligons, of course), some chutneys, silver teaspoons, a vintage brass compass, little else. My cousin brought back scarves, tea towels, and a pair of boots.
I am packing much lighter this year, with just a 24" spinner, but I intend to take an empty rucksack inside for dirty clothes to carry on and check my spinner on the way back to carry a bit of perfume -- Serge Lutens, likely. I'm going to hit the flea markets and vintage stores for a few trinkets. Probably bring back some fleur de sel for the boyfriend, who is quite the chef.
Any other suggestions? And is anything a bargain compared to the States?
Please tell me what you just HAD to bring back?
