Hi, everyone! my name is Nikki Zonoozy of the Bay Area Blues and I wanted to let you know about a craft business that I have recently started up, specifically for fellow Chelsea supporters. I have been a CIA and True Blue member for the past three years and have been lucky enough to fly across the pond to London twice and visit Stamford Bridge several times since joining. I had the distinct pleasure of being at the Bridge for the last match of the 2012/13 season, where they displayed both the Champions League and Europa League cups on the pitch after our victory. If you’ve never been, it’s well worth the long flight.
I have always been the crafty type; knitting, sewing, making bracelets, beading, glass etching, and even wood burning. I tend to be drawn to various types of crafts, with each new project leading to three more. There’s just so much to try out! So the idea of turning my hobbies into a craft business was a little daunting at first. How could I possibly pick one thing to focus on? And then it hit me, a clear unifying idea that could relate to all of the different things I do: Chelsea.
After playing around with the idea for a while, I decided to just go for it. Thus my Etsy shop, Sellery 1905, was born! I currently craft paracord bracelets and keychains in Chelsea colors, wood burned plaques with the club’s old style seal, and etched pint glasses. I opened my online shop just in time for the holidays, and have been having a lot of fun so far. Now I’m looking to expand, setting up a shopping cart on Facebook and working on new items that I think people would like. I wanted to spread the word about what I’m up to, and would love to make something for you! I also take custom orders, and am really interested to learn what kinds of crafty things that you may be looking for.
