A note from Chelsea about “simpatico:”
Simpatico is more than just a word. It’s a feeling. It’s a place you enter into, or a person you encounter, and immediately feel welcomed, warm and connected. Naming my shop after this beautiful word was inspired by my grandmothers, Lucy and Mary.
My grandmothers came from different worlds, but were both warm, unconditionally loving and put their families first. They were also both responsible for me understanding at a very young age that everything has a story—and stories are worth saving. When you surround yourself with rich stories, you create more meaning and purpose in your life.
That is how I envision every item in my shop. With meaning and purpose. With a story. And my hope is that when you take something from simpatico home with you, it becomes part of your story, too.
So, please, stop in and stay for a while. Let’s chat about your space, what you love, what you’re looking for, where you’ve been. I guarantee you’ll leave with a smile on your face, and hopefully, a feeling of simpatico.
