I was shopping in Evanston on Christmas eve looking for the perfect gift for my wife when I discovered the Dancing Bear Gallery. As soon as I entered the store I was transported to my childhood on a family vacation that took us to the Grand Canyon and a store much like the Dancing Bear. Ever since then I have ben an admirer of Native American Art and if your like me, this store will bring you back to a simpler day. Chris the store owner, helped me select a pair of ear rings that I know my wife will love. He was very knowledgeable and friendly too. I highly recommend this store to anyone looking for something very unique from the Southwest and our nations history.

The jewelry is nice at Dancing Bear, but DO NOT get your rings sized there. I bought a ring that was slightly too big and had it sized. They send their jewelry out to a silversmith. I was told that it would take two weeks. That sounded reasonable; I have had rings sized before at other jewelry stores in Evanston and it has taken 1 - 2 weeks. Dancing Bear took FIVE AND ONE HALF weeks to get it done! I called every couple of weeks and when I called I got the brush off from a woman with an accent. She curtly said that they would call me when the ring was done. When I went to pick it up there was no apology for the length of time it took. In my opinion, Dancing Bear had very poor customer service. If their silversmith is so far behind, perhaps they should think about hiring a new one who can get the work done in a timely manner.

The Dancing Bear Gallery is by far the best place for thoes of us who crave Native American art and jewelery. Every item is hand picked by owner Christopher Radke who's customer service almost outshines the gallery's sterling silver jewelery collection. If your in the Evanston area stop in- you won't be disappointed.
