Cheap Shipping to Chain Reaction Cycles/UK/Ireland

So I bought this 60 saddle off ChainReaction not really thinking that if I needed to return it that I'd be returning it across the Atlantic. What's the cheapest method to ship this back - or should I just eat it/sell it on Craigs?

I think return shipping is prohibitive. Just sell it or give it to a friend.

Sell it here.

Mailing treaties make it fairly inexpensive to ship things into the USA...but one here it is very expensive to send them somewhere else. Ebay's EPacket shipping from China is a classic example of this, has put Ebay seller's in the USA out of business as they simply cannot compete on the shipping. Costs the Chinese guy $1USD to send it here, costs me $20+USD to send it back.
