UK versus US pricing

I enjoy beading pens - you buy a special metal pen in pieces bead covers for the 2 halves and assemble - I started off buying them from a company in England at £8.50 each + £2.00 (variable - approx) p&p. I've now found a site in the US (http://www.artcraftworld.com/beads) who sell them for $6.25 + $4.95 p&p ($9.00 to the UK).    This seems to happen across a wide range of items - it's cheaper to buy things from the US and import them than to buy them here.  I've found sometimes with Amazon.co.uk that they take the US price and just change the $ sign to a £ sign.  It's bloody annoying.
