About The Chelsea St Pete
The Chelsea St Pete offers a welcoming space to meet up with friends and pick up drinks, tea, coffee and locally baked goods in the Warehouse Arts District. Take some time to browse our fun retail items including cards, stickers, accessories, home decor, jewelry, and candles.
“The Chelsea” was inspired by The Hotel Chelsea, which was a famous meeting spot for creatives, eccentrics, and intellectuals in Manhattan for much of the 20th century.
Be a part of one of our public events or let us help you host your own event in our beautiful patio garden space. Whatever you need, we’re here for you. And don’t worry, you don’t have to leave your best friend at home because we’re also dog (and bike) friendly!
About the Owner
The Chelsea St Pete is owned and operated by St. Petersburg OG Teresa Vidal Chalkley.
Teresa created, co-owned and managed two stylish and popular boutiques in St. Petersburg, Florida:
Bossa Nova: gift and jewelry store in downtown St. Petersburg from 2001-2006 with the "Best Baubles" around.
if and only if: clothing, jewelry, and gift store, located on 4th St N from 1993-2009, earning a loyal following and numerous "Best of" awards over the years.
Before the shops, Teresa lived in Chelsea, NYC, (thus the name "The Chelsea"), earning degrees at the Fashion Institute of Technology and N.Y.U. After running her own shops for many years, Teresa earned a Master's in Human Resource Development from USF. Go Bulls!
Teresa's husband and partner hails from England, bringing the flavor of what he calls the 'original' Chelsea in London.
