I know so many people who’ve been burned by airport vendors selling them goods they then immediately lose at customs. If you ask a vendor if it’s okay to bring the items they’re selling into a country, agricultural (flowers, plants, etc.) or otherwise, they’re almost always going to say yes as they want to make a sale—or they just don’t know. When in doubt, just look up the item you want to buy on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection site to see if you can bring it home to the U.S.
