Known globally for returning lost heirlooms to families, Chelsey Brown is not your average, run-of-the-mill genealogist. In addition to her hundreds of heirloom returns, Brown has become a whistleblower in her field, breaking the stigma surrounding family drama, exposing the abhorrent world of underground artifacts, and giving her historical takes on pop culture trends and gossip. Join Chelsey as she shares the movie-esque stories behind the heirlooms she finds, discusses the scandal within the world of genealogy, gives her genealogical take on pop culture, and most importantly, uses these artifacts to travel back in time and connects us with raw moments in history.
ahoy! I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE
THE HEIRLOOM HUNTER AND DECORATOR.
Chelsey Brown is the founder of City Chic Decor, a guide to stylish rental and budget-friendly decor, and is globally recognized for her work in genealogy returning lost heirlooms back to family members and descendants. Chelsey recognized the significant lack of content around rental decor and created her blog to reduce the stigma around rental decorating. City Chic Decor has grown exponentially since its 2017 launch, now with over 100,000 subscribers and a book entitled, Rental Style, published by Skyhorse Publishing in May 2020. Chelsey’s second book, Shut the Front Door published by Gibbs Smith, will be released in 2023. While thrifting for her blog, Chelsey discovers lost heirlooms and has now returned hundreds of heirlooms to families worldwide without compensation or reimbursement.
