I find myself thinking about ordering an item, in this case a brush, from China. Not that I think it's something special, but partly out of curiosity about the process itself and to give me a cheap brush handle to experiment changing a knot on. That being said, I've never ordered anything from out of the US and am wondering what to expect, other than an extended shipment transit time? Will I end up with a bill from someone for import duties, or something like that, or any other various and sundry charges? Just trying to keep myself from having one of those "Dang, I wish I'd have known that" kind of moments. Thanks!
