Check for a parcel service in Bellingham.

There are places near the border that specialize in receiving US parcels for Canadians. You use their address when ordering and then go down and pick up your package when it arrives. (I use a service south of me in North Dakota occasionally for US outfits that won't ship across the border).

They charge 2 bucks for packages less than 10 lbs. Then there's the cost of gas to drive there and back, and of course the sales tax they hit you with at the border. As a downside, warranty can be a problem when you have to ship back and forth for repairs. I haven't had to yet.

If you use a credit card to order, you'll need to contact your bank and have them add the parcel service's address as a second address (shipping address).
