usps versus ups for shipping to canada

Hi everybody,
I am hooked on that forum!!!
Any advices on getting fabrics shipped to canada?, seems to be shipping via ups, by experience (means when I buy sthg on ebay in the us) I always ask that my item is shipped via the post (usps) because via ups I had to pay for border crossing fees (which mean their broker did some paperwork and charge me $35 for it) when I ask them about it and said the post was not charging me that, they replied the post could do it, not them! anyway I would like to order from the fabric store and would like to know what you guys have been charged for???
thanks for your advice

Hi Francine, I found the same thing and always specify USPS. They're fast, cheap and I've never had to pay any additional charges. Quite often I don't even get charged duty.
