How do you figure 6-8 weeks?  Are you sending it by trained dolphin?  Items I mailed from Rochester, NY on 18 Dec arrived in London and Leeds on 24 Dec. I did nothing special.  I just walked into the Post Office and said, "I'd like to mail these to the UK."

Two ounces each, (stuffed a CD inside a Christmas card) Airmail Letter Post was $1.60.  Interestingly, "Economy" Surface Letter Post for the same thing would be $3.80 and take 4-6 weeks.  It must be New Math or something...
