Its all in a Name ...Chicks Love that is.....

I have started selling on Etsy, for those of you that don’t know what that is its a site that sells only Hand Made or Vintage Items.

Whilst searching around trying to work out how things function I stumbled onto the Etsy Blog and into a thread how did you come up with your name?
So I answered and thought what a brilliant idea so I thought I would let everyone know how I came up with the name Chicks Love.
So here it is the genius that is behind the name CHICKS LOVE ……….

I wanted to make vintage fun and vibrant.
My favourite film is Notting Hill!!
In it is an amazing funny character called Spike, he answers the door in a pair of Grey underpants!! Looks at himself in the Mirror pulls pants up and says ‘Chicks Love Grey!!”
I thought Chicks Love lots of stuff and I thought what a great name for a website. I like the fact you can put anything to it Chicks Love ……Jewellery, Chicks Love ……….. vintage, Chicks Love ……….. shoes, Chicks Love ……..Fashion!!!

You get the picture!!
I have even added a clip for you of the moment the lovely spike aka Rhys Ifans.
So not very exciting really but there you have it!
Thanks for stopping by.
See you soon.

Top Tip of the day

Tarnished Jewellery

Soak for 15 minutes in a bowl of hot soapy water, then scrub very gently with a soft toothbrush, if you have a really stubborn stain the use a little white toothpaste and work in a circular motion. Rinse and dry, then polish to a sparkle with a soft cloth, A duster is ideal!!
Doesn’t always work but you may be able to salvage some items.
