Welcome to our next Face of Mid-Missouri!
Best of the West has been a staple of Mid-Missouri since 1998. It is owned and operated by Don Hart, a master silversmith. Don is an amazing man with a great deal of knowledge about Native American ways, healing, and let’s not forget about the silver! With 38 years of experience, Don knows more about the metal than just about anyone around. He repairs and creates custom pieces with the skill and heart of a true artisan.
But silver is not the only thing that Best of the West has to offer. They also have the largest selection of authentic Native American jewelry and crafts in the Midwest. They have more stones and minerals in more sizes than any store in the Midwest as well. Need questions answered about stones and their properties? This is the place to go. Need a rare stone that no one else seems to have? They probably do. Obsidian, turquoise, jet, amber, amethyst, quartz — you name it they probably have it or know how to get it. They also sell many of the supplies needed for ceremony and ritual, as well as some Native influenced instruments, blankets, furniture, and much more.
