How about having it shipped to a P.O. box in a border town and bringing it across yourself? I've bought stuff at chandlerys across the border and it was no different than any other purchase coming back. I've never had to pay brokerage on any internet purchases either including $1K of tires when FedEx delivered them here.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
