Chic and Shore Things is the result of a life long dream to have a small boutique filled with my own hand-crafted and artisan created home decor.
Ever since I found my home by the sea in Fort Pierce Florida, I've been inspired by both morning walks along the ocean and sunset evenings collecting shells along intracoastal waters. As I began the process of re-imagining how I wanted to decorate my own seaside slice of heaven, I settled on a shabby chic cottage style that reminded me everyday of the paradise I lived in now.
Once I completed my own home, I was ready for something new. I began crafting my own beach inspired decor using the abundant resources around me; mussels, sea shells, coral and driftwood. The more I made, the more encouragement I got from friends and family so I realized the time had come to share my creations with the world. It was time to open a store of my own and share a life long passion for home decorating, hand crafting and expert shopping.
On October 12th, 2013, with the help of many close friends and family I realized that very dream in historic downtown Fort Pierce at Chic and Shore Things. Thank you so much for finding your way to our website. I hope you will find something to treasure and try in your own beach retreat. I'll be adding more products, sharing plenty of decorating ideas and tips as I go. For now I need to go get back to work, these little treasure aren't going to make themselves.
