The Birth of Chickadee Social Club

Hey, thanks a lot for visiting Chickadee Social Club. Here’s the story of how the Chickadee Social Club came to be:

It all began one afternoon when my friend, Carolina and I were lamenting the fact that we felt like just a couple of corporate paper jockeys. We wanted to find something that would help us break out of the monotony of our daily lives – not to say that we were unhappy – we just craved...something...just something that would inspire us and nurture our souls. We were busy women flying around taking care of our responsibilities at home, at the office, to our families...and we felt we just weren’t spending enough time taking care of ourselves!

The Birth of Chickadee Social Club

Hey, thanks a lot for visiting Chickadee Social Club. Here’s the story of how the Chickadee Social Club came to be:

It all began one afternoon when my friend, Carolina and I were lamenting the fact that we felt like just a couple of corporate paper jockeys. We wanted to find something that would help us break out of the monotony of our daily lives – not to say that we were unhappy – we just craved...something...just something that would inspire us and nurture our souls. We were busy women flying around taking care of our responsibilities at home, at the office, to our families...and we felt we just weren’t spending enough time taking care of ourselves!

The Inspiration: We both really appreciate the happiness and sense of well-being we gain from simply hanging out with our girl friends – doing girlie stuff – which includes pampering spa-type sessions, and crafty creative things, and shopping, and lots and lots of talking and sharing.

Time Limitations: Scheduling these get-togethers in NYC on a regular basis, we soon discovered, can be daunting. We may have been seeking something new to fill our lives, but it wasn’t like we had a lot of time on our hands. We needed a way to satisfy our need for nurture that was convenient and flexible so that we could squeeze it in between everything else we were juggling in our lives.

Space Constraints: One of the most difficult things to do is to find a good place to gather. Although finding the right place to assemble can be difficult in many cities around the country, it’s especially true in New York City where homes are often too small to host group events. And let’s be real – it’s not girls’ night out unless you’re O-U-T and away from the husbands, boyfriends, children, pets, household chores, etc. all demanding your attention.

That’s when we realized we needed to create a venue of our own – a social club – where girls can go to do the girlie things they love.

The plans to open a Chickadee Social Club include a bar, a coffee shop, a workshop, a mini-spa, and a store. The concepts are still incubating...and awaiting funding!

And that’s how the idea of chickadee social club was born!

What does all this have to do with Etsy? Hah! Not much besides stealing the name! While the plans to open the chickadee social club might still be in the works, that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to develop the ideas in the interim. The chickadeesocialclub.etsy.com shop provides an outlet for our crafty urges. The Etsy community provides a wonderful and supportive social network. And all the incredibly diverse and interesting Etsy shops satisfy our need to shop. WE LOVE ETSY!

Hope you enjoy browing what we have to offer in our shop!

Best wishes,

chickadee Dee
