Q: How do I purchase my items?
A: We are working on implementing a shopping cart but for now just send us a message on the website, email, text or call me. I will ship your item within 1-2 business days via UPS.
Q: How much is shipping?
A: Most of our items are small and can be shipped for a flat rate via UPS for around $5. Our larger items such as lighting, furniture and windmill pieces are mostly for pick up only. If you want a larger item shipped, it is possible, but you will be responsible for shipping fees. Our windmill pieces typically ship with Beaver Express which is affordable but may take a bit longer.
Q: Do you do custom paint jobs?
A: As of right now, we are not taking new projects and only paint what will be resold in our store.
Q: Will you find items for me?
A: We are always on the lookout for our customers. If you are looking for a certain piece of furniture or a specialty item, we can usually find it. Just let us know what you want and we will scout ahead for you.
Q: Why are your items so expensive?
A: Typically we travel a great distance to auctions or estate sales to pick up our goods. It takes a lot of time and effort to get our inventory in the store and we feel our prices are more than fair. Also, many of our items are hand crafted and we don’t use that term lightly. Hand poured candles, hand stitched leather work, hand beaded moccasins, handmade soaps, hand drilled lights, etc. Remember you won’t be able to go to Target or Amazon and buy what we offer in our store. That being said we have a store full of items in the $10-$15 range.
Q: Do you offer lay away?
A: Absolutely. We ask for 20% down and that the item is paid off in no more than 3 months.
Q: Do you take consignments?
A: No, we do not.
Q: How much commission do you charge to sell artwork?
A: For local artists, we do not charge commission. If you have artwork you are interested in selling, come see us. We will most likely be more than happy to showcase it in our store and won’t charge you a penny. If you are not from the Spearman area, we are still happy to take a look at your work but there will be a commission charge of 20%.
Q: Where did the name Yellow Bird come from?
A: I am a Registered Choctaw Indian (1/8th) and even have my CDIB card to prove it. Native Americans are often given names mainly at birth after the first animal they see. My Indian grandfather, Theodore Henry, was called Toad for most of his life. My grandmother is Many Feathers, my mother is Red Bird and I was recently deemed Yellow Bird by my Great Uncle Gene. I, for a long time, didn’t feel ready for an Indian name as I wasn’t exactly sure what it should be or if it would stick. After I met my husband, I knew it was Yellow Bird and I knew I would keep that name until we grew old together. Boutique is defined as a small company that offers highly specialized services or products and so became Yellow Bird Boutique.
