How can I cross the Canada-U.S. border with a bunch of zines?

I have been invited to bring my zine to a book fair in New York. I'll be crossing the Canadian border by train or bus carrying on me around 600 small zines (6 in X 4 in, 16 pages) that will probably fit in one duffel bag or cardboard box. The little publications are hand-made but do have an ISBN and a price on the cover.
What can I do to avoid problems at the border? I've seen American micro-publishers having their stuff retained at the border when they were coming to Canada for expositions, and that would really suck.
