I can’t believe I’m still posting blog interviews about totally awesome, local business owners! You guys!! Our area is full of so many talented folks!! The ladies at Chelley Co. are a very dynamic duo!! I’ve been following them on instagram for awhile and am super excited that their company has just launched! Check out the interview and then go check out their site!
1. Tell us a little about yourselves:
Danielle Casey (Jupiter, Florida) Danni Mitchell (West Palm Beach, Florida)
We both grew up in South Florida and aside from a few years spent here and there in other cities, states and countries we have always called South Florida home. No human babies yet, haha .. but Danielle has 1 cat and Danni has 4 cats! …and we absolutely adore each and every one of them! :))
2. When did you start the Chelley Co. brand and what are the services you offer?
Chelley Co. was established in 2014 as a stationery company. We have recently transitioned into a lifestyle brand & our carefully curated online shop (jewelry, home decor, paper goods, kids & woman apparel, accessories and gifts) will be launching in August 2015! The items in the shop have all been hand selected from artists/makers near and far that we have scouted out through social media and other online avenues.
Our philosophy is all about creating through collaboration within the community.
There are three components to Chelley Co.:
-#MadebyChelley (stationery and other paper goods that we create)
-Artists & Makers (we hand select talented artisans from near & far to feature on our website … and sell their products!)
-#ChelleyCollabs (we collaborate with artists and makers to create one of a kind products exclusively sold on ChelleyCo.com)
3. Who makes up the Chelley Co. crew?
Danielle Casey & Danni Mitchell
4. What do you find most challenging about running your own business?
For us, it’s distance! Danielle currently resides in Miami and New York while Danni in WPB — thankfully, technology allows us to work virtually pretty efficiently but it’s amazing what we accomplish together when we’re in the same room!
5. What is the most rewarding thing about running your company?
1.) Giving opportunity to Artists & Makers. We have an internship program and have been able to have a handful of students from Palm Beach State College work side by side with us. Watching them learn and grow with us is not only rewarding but so inspiring!
2.) Getting the chance to collaborate with those we’ve always looked up to creatively! Nothing is cooler than checking your inbox on a Monday morning and receiving an email from someone you have adored on Instagram for what seems like ages wanting to work with you!
6. What do you do on your days off?
Unfortunately, there is no rest for the wicked. But on the off chance we get to squeeze in a few hours we usually spend them outdoors with our boyfriends, family and a bottle (or two) of wine.
7. How do you juggle work & family?
It can definitely be tough but we do the best we can to maintain a healthy balance. Letting the phone completely die in order to sit through a family dinner works great We definitely look forward to the day where we feel comfortable enough to take an entire weekend off!
8. Who is your favorite Superhero and why?
9. Where can we find Chelley Co. online? (Website/Social Media)
10. Is there anything else you would like is to know?
We launched August 15th and if you’re local to Florida we would love to hear from you!
