Our Story

Chisme Chick (C.C.) creates and curates stories. As William Shakespeare stated in Henry IV, "There is a history in all men's lives." Founders, Jennifer and Cindy, grew up in a bibliophile household. The company’s name is even a literary device, an alliteration, and emphasizes their love of foreign languages. Chisme (chees-meh) Chick is a bilingual term that refers to a person who likes to communicate stories. As curators, we help you craft your narrative. Contact us to learn more about these services!


The owners have been passionate about history and literature since a young age.
