Cheapest way to ship from France to US?

  1. I am negotiating on a purse from a seller in France...what is the best way to ship the item? She told me this-->

    The bag's weight is 872 g, so, it will very likely go beyond 1 kg with the box. The basic price (with acknowledgment of receipt) of the "colissimo international" is 25,30 euros under 1 kg and 37,30 euros between 1 and 2 kgs. The box (sold by the post) costs 32 euros. So that's a total of 49,30 euros :cry:

    That seems like a lot, and the box alone costs 32 euros? Maybe I'm confused and someone can explain how it works? Are other options to get it shipped cheaper? Thanks!
