FAQ


Are you hiring?

Like chicken coop! (or duck coop) Check out more information on how we got our name here!

What's your return policy?
I don't see what I want on your website, is it in stock?
Our website is a work in progress - we appreciate your patience while we work out the kinks. We're slowly but surely adding our in-store stock to the online shop. If you don't see what you're looking for, feel free to contact us and we can let you know what we carry.

How do I get my order?
At checkout, you can choose shipping (price calculated at checkout) or free in-store pickup at our location in the Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana.

Possibly! We partner with some local artists to sell their artwork and products in-store! We'd be happy to consider selling your stuff, but due to the small format of our store we can't accept everything! :( If you're interested in selling with us, please fill out our Wholesale Form. (coming soon)

Do you do custom framing?
Unfortunately, we don't, but International Galleries is right down the hall in the Lincoln Square Mall and they would loveeeee to custom frame something for you! 

Can I put on an art show in your gallery??
Possibly! If you're interested in putting on a show in our gallery, please fill out our form. (coming soon) Acceptance will depend on our current gallery availability and staffing.

Do you have art classes?
