Regex Help For Procmail

  I use procmail for mail delivery and I'm trying to concoct the right 
regex to match From: headers and deliver to a folder.  However mail is 
sent from various addresses so I want to match all that end with 
">".  Here's an example of a header:

From: "Famous Smoke Shop"<Announce at>

Because I also occasionally order, I don't want to catch mail from 
anything that has the word "Orders" and "Famous" in the From field.  
Thus here is my procmail recipe:

# Deliver order info to inbox

# Deliver other email to folder
"${HOME}/Maildir/.Shopping/Famous Smoke/Email/"

According to my procmail log, the From: header does not match.  I would 
expect the example From: header above to match the second regex and be 
delivered to the specified folder. Where is my error?
