Our vision at GothChics is simple, to create wonderful unique things for wonderful unique people. Every piece we create is hand crafted by our in house artisan, April Doyal, making each piece truly one of a kind.

In the metaphorical sense, if there was ever a box, I have never thought inside it's boundaries. I love testing limits and seeing how far I can push them.

I am often described as unusual, different, quirky, eccentric, eclectic, strange, impractical - poetic words that for some would be considered an insult - I embrace fully the woman that I am and all my idiosyncrasies that come with the gifts that the universe has blessed me with. Creating is not something I do, it is a vital part of the structure that is me.

With each offering GothChics invites you to own a piece that blends the lines between craft and art; to go beyond the ordinary and expected; and experience something truly unique.

Payment is also appreciated within 5 days of your purchase.

If you are requesting alchemy items, please note that there is a 50% non refundable deposit required before I will begin your work. Since custom work is done on demand, it is important to understand that cancellation of such orders will result in the forfeit of your deposit.
99% of the time my shipping method of preference is USPS postal service first class mail. Larger orders will ship out via priority mail.

I ship once per week. The day varies from week to week. Typically it is Wednesday or Friday. If you need your items quicker please let me know and I will do my best to get your items out to you in the time frame that you need.
Additional policies and FAQs
Alchemy requests with GothChics are best handled by allowing me to know what it is you would like, and then giving an idea of what makes you who you are, so that I can take as much information into consideration and see the inspiration that strikes to create the item(s) that are perfect for you.

Wholesale and consignment requests are also handled on a case by case basis. Please conversation me with your request information and let me know what it is you are considering and we can work together to see how your needs and ours can best work together to form a positive, rewarding and fulfilling relationship for us both.

Due to the way the creative mind works, the more freedom that is given in your request the more likely it will be it will be accepted. I assume that if you have requested custom work you are familiar with my style of work and my preferred mediums and love the types of things that I most enjoy creating. And that as such you understand that I will not send out items that do not meet my strict criteria
