Could you please give us your advice as we are receiving conflicting reports about certain effects entering Canada. Do outside & outdoor effects have to be almost clinically clean? Are untreated wicker, basket-weave, rattan items and dried flower arrangements allowed to be imported without any problems?
Burke Bros Answer:
The dried flowers are fine as long as they are clean. As for the untreated wicker and other items, they could cause a red flag for inspection. Anything like that with a shellac on it is fine, but if it is untreated they may want to inspect it for bore/insect holes. These inspections will cause delays and additional charges.
