Louis Vuitton: LV store in Strasbourg, France

Our Dear Daughter was delighted to take the picture below in front of the LV store in Strasbourg, France.  She was in Germany visiting our son and daughter in law. This Louis Vuitton store is located over the border from Germany.  However, it is still over 4 hours away from the famous Louis Vuitton Champs-Elysees, Paris -- the LV store within a few blocks from our Paris AirBNB apartment.

Cartier: Love Bangle Bracelet

According to Google, these Cartier bracelets are the most-searched item of jewelry in the world -- receiving 350,000 searches per month.  My most recent search on the Cartier website show the price of each authentic Cartier Love Bracelet runs from $4k+ to $56k+, excluding tax.  Price is based on metal content, choice/quantity of gems, and of course, the name Cartier.
