Default U.S. Caftan Purchase from Egypt?

There's a terrific seller on eBay (well, there are thousands of them....) who's got the caftans of my dreams! Only they happen to be in Cairo and I happen to be in Wisconsin.

Has anyone in the U.S. had problems purchasing items from the Middle East - I'm wondering about Customs, in particular, getting on some sort of "Watch" list doesn't bother me!

The seller has good feedback on a substantial number of sales, but much of it is European.

Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated. Though the price of the items is quite reasonable in relation to the quality, it's still high enough I would not want to find I had paid for the package, only to have it "lost" in Customs!

I have sent items to other countries across waters, nothing has been lost. That being said I've never sent to the Middle East. I have purchased clothing from India and had great results that way too. Sorry I can't be a bit more helpful.

I've had good luck getting things from India and also Israel. I've bought a couple of icons from Egypt (thru a local Coptic Church) and got them very quickly.

Peggy, would you mind sharing the seller, I'd love to look at them. I haven't owned a caftan in quite some time, but I'd love to have one of good quality.

Here's the link to the eBay Store:

There's much more than clothing available, but the caftans are stunning - from the pictures, anyway.

I can't vouch for the quality, but the feedback is good and in a category you often find lots of complaints. I'm hoping to get something in early May - and don't you take the one I want!! ;o) (As soon as I figure out which one I want, that is!)
