Bling by Chele becomes Asheville Mall's newest store
By: Asheville Signarama
What is now one of the newest storefronts in the Mall began only two and a half years ago when Michele became a supplier of Paparazzi Accessories and launched Bling by Chele as a part-time home business. "Working in corporate America, we need to wear jewelry every day to match our outfits, and finding jewelry that is affordable is not easy. When I came across Paparazzi and their range of jewelry I was excited. Eventually, I decided to become an independent consultant for them." Michele continued. "Now I have grown the business to an in-store location, and have even been approached about opening more stores in other malls."
Michele worked in the healthcare industry for 25 years but was drawn to the idea of helping people find jewelry that they're excited about. "It makes them feel happy about themselves,"
All of Bling by Chele's jewelry is nickel and lead-free, which means most people can wear it. People who believe they can only wear silver or gold, are often allergic to the nickel used in most costume jewelry, so the Paparazzi jewelry is a pleasant allergy-free alternative. "Children also love it," Michele points out. "They will come in and try on various pieces. It's great to see them excited while they ask their parents how they look and can they then have it."
Bling by Chele offers two product ranges – the $25.00 'Zi' range and the $5.00 Paparazzi. "Our necklaces all come with free matching earrings and this blows peoples minds. People can come and try on all the pieces. When they come in, we don't hide behind a counter. We want to personally work with them and help them select the best choices for them. This is part of the reason we're so successful."
While transitioning from a home-based business to a mall kiosk was a challenge, moving into a storefront had its own issues. "When I was asked to become an in-store vendor by the mall management team, I realized I needed a sign," Michele explained. "I looked online and called several local sign companies before finding Jeff Corpening at Signarama Asheville. He called me back right away and came out to see my store in person. We had to come up with a sign solution quickly and within my budget. Jeff had a number of suggestions and I was amazed at how easy it was to work with him to create a great sign. My neighbors here at the mall have already told me they have sign envy, and I can see the sign in action as it catches customers' attention. I've recommended Signarama to other store owners and everyone has loved the service they receive. They're my sign company."
