Cathy Whiteway here...A.K.A "Chici" (pronounced Chick-ee)! I've been sewing my little fingers off since I was 6 years old...first making my own doll clothes, then my own clothes, then other peoples clothes and wedding gowns, and now slipcovers and ruffles. That skill has taken me far and now I incorporate it into my vintage and antiques business, recycling, upcycling, and repurposing the fabric, lace and doilies of another era into what is now "Chici's Cottage Style".
My first furniture re-do was when I was 18, back in the early 70's (yes I'm a fossil) when I discovered the possibilities of creating something wonderful out of something old and worn. And now, besides revamped vintage textile pillows and clothing, I offer transformed furniture and home decor, and lots of garden items for casual Florida living. Hope to meet you at The Polka Dot Flea!!!
