There's a couple of group buys happening at my camera club for the very reason that postage kills individual orders.
Postage from the US seems ridiculous. I recently participated in the 'largeformatphotograhy' exchange (you send your prints to a central location and that person sends back a batch of prints) and although what was sent to me was slightly larger and heavier than what I sent, mine cost $13 to send and after exchange conversion the other cost nearly $50. I've noticed it at other times as well.
P.S. Good to see the enthusiasm of this exchange is still high, almost infectious! If I ever get organised I might have to rejoin the fray!
