GREETINGS - Due to the 11.9% increase in USPS shipping costs @ Kute Ears we have had to increase our prices. We are always keeping our prices at the lower end of selling although this postage increase has prevented us from an increase. At Kute Ears you will find a honest and friendly store with a variety of earrings. Our earrings are costume and sold at fair prices. We always offer Free Shipping! If you ever have questions about our items listed or purchased please contact Kute Ears we believe in 100% CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.
