Genuine Native American Indian Navajo Zuni Hopi Kewa Sterling Silver Jewelry
Effective October 1, 2019, I can no longer sell or ship jewelry to customers residing in the state of Kansas due to Kansas's extremely complicated remote seller sales tax laws. In order to ship to Kansas, I would be required to collect and remit city, state and local sales tax on all items shipped to Kansas. ALL states, except for Kansas, have a small seller exemption for small sellers like me. Hopefully Kansas lawmakers will remedy this situation soon. I apologize for this inconvenience.
