Shipping from USA

I have a quick question, I have an item I sold on ebay over 2k, and because I need signature confirmation, plus its cheaper and I can make more money, I'd like to ship from bellingham or something. I was just wondering if I bring the item over, even if its made in Canada, will I get taxed or anything like that? Any help would be appreciated, sorry if this is the wrong thread, thanks.

How much is your item?

If it's less than 100 bucks, usually guards at border won't care much. As the they will spend filing the paperworks could potentially be bigger than the revenue they get.

I sold once to a guy in US, went to Blaine to send it, told the CBP guy I had a 80 bucks jacket I was selling, and he let me through with no hassle.
Nothing for now

Just go over to point roberts - it's just where the BC Ferries terminal is in Tswassen (sorry can't spell). Go over there and ship it through TSB shipping or Point to Point. 0 hassel, it's what that place is built for - shipping stuff to and from the excited states of america

Point Roberts is where you will get hasseled. Blaine - not so much.

Bellingham? I don't know why you would want to go that far.
