Border shopping question

I was down in the states for a few days. Bought some bulky item over there and they would not allow international shipping, so I had the item shipped to a border town. Now that I am back home, if I go over the borders to pick up the item in the states and come back home within the same day, would I be subjected to duties?

I purchased the item during the time I was absent from Canada, for 4 days.

Would showing a receipt for the item and my plane ticket for the place i travelled allow me to come back to Canada with the item without duties?
