      Ah I guess that makes sense! I don't think I've ever ordered anything from China lol. But I'm definitely ordering those glasses. They're awesome!

        Taxes and fees that you have to pay to have some things imported into Canada.

        I could be totally off base here, but i think that anything that is shipped from the US, but is made outside of the US, you have to pay duty on. I just ordered my dress from a shop in Boston, MA, and all I had to pay was the taxes on it because the designer manufactures their dresses in the US. That saved me sooooooooooo much $$... Yay!!

          Yep that's it. When something is MADE in the US or MEX, you will only pay taxes on it, no duty. Everything else is subject to taxes + duty. It's case by case, you don't always have to pay...Before ordering something, one should always consider the full amount with duty + taxes, and if they end up not charging you it's a bonus !

            Yes, Sorry I mixed those things up. From USA, I almost always either have to pay either duty, taxes, or fees from the shipping company to get it through the border. From China I never pay any of those.

                For any of you ladies going to Mexico for sure, possibly other destinations, make sure you take receipts with you for what everything you are bringing in costs. We didn't carry much down with us, 15 small glass vases, about 5 frames with pictures, cellophane, wedding favours and cake server set and such and we were asked how much what we had was worth (the limit in Mexico is $300 to bring in) and my brother who was carrying just a couple frames and vases in his luggage was actually asked what his stuff was worth too. Nothing close to $300 but if you had a lot of stuff I could imagine them getting picky! Spreading it out amongst family members is a great option if available, just make sure you give them receipts in case they are asked :o)

                    I'm not sure if there was a faster option, but I think the 14th is pretty tight. DHGate warned me that there is a 3 day holiday starting today, and then it took a few days to process the order even before it shipped.
