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. They offer oral history, public history, archive, editing and design services. 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. As curators, we help you craft your narrative. Contact us to learn more about these services!

We are looking for other people who like to Share Chisme, so consider sending us an article, poem, short story, decor idea, art piece, or blog post. So let’s talk about history, literature, art, film, music, fashion, horticulture, interior design, and crafts!
