About Us

Chicklet and Tina“I’m not opening a store!” Famous last words – and I couldn’t be happier that I changed my mind. After working at the Village Peddler for a few years, this opportunity came knocking in the form of a little lady with big ideas, Jackie Finger (Village Peddler owner). The name Chicklet’s Closet came to me when I was considering what to call my new adventure. Many islanders remember a little dog that stole everyone’s heart and sadly left us much too early. Since I knew in addition to signature lines that KI shoppers had come to love such as Fresh Produce, Roxy, Quick Silver, Reef, Keen, and Athena, I was planning to add a pet section to the store and feature pet beds, leashes, collars and clothing for our 4 legged friends. I remembered a beautiful drawing of Chicklet that my friend BJ Misovich did, and knew it would make the perfect logo – Chicklet’s Closet was born.

We also carry original Kelleys Island gear for adults and kids (the 2 legged variety) designed by local artists. Looking for jewelry? The Closet carries Lizzy James, Poseidon, and Seasons jewelry for yourself or a special friend. Our new line Mona B has been a big hit so far–beautiful clothing as well as gorgeous bags made from re-purposed military tarps and tents.

Stop into Chicklet’s Closet the next time you visit Kelleys Island as the inventory is always changing! (You know you need a new pair of flip flops for sure). See you soon.
