Chisme Chick (C.C.) is a Spanglish term that refers to one who likes to gossip/talk. Sisters Jennifer and Cindy Keil created C.C. to tell a story. As multigenerational storytellers, they share their favorite stories and can also create something to tell your story too. Using objects of art and function, they craft a story, from the ancient to present era history, in the form of literature, art, music, beauty practices, horticulture, and crafts.
C.C. offers their clientele a unique collection of handmade goods containing narratives found in history and literature. From Obsidian arrowhead pendants to literary scarves, Pixie Dust necklaces, or Life Blankets their merchandise can be found featured on Etsy and Storenvy. And don’t miss their “Things We Love” Collection.
