In most of Europe, the sales tax (VAT) is added onto the items base price, so the consumer never sees it unlike traditional use her in the US, where sales taxes are added after the total purchase is added up, so we in the US see the total for the Sales Taxes. Your sister probably only noticed that things in Europe were more expensive than here in the US. the VAT was the reason.
