CC - Coffee House Créatif

<p> <u><strong>Bonjour !</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> My name is Céline and I would like to present you my project ! I told you everything in this little video clip but if you don't have time right now, you can still read these few lines first ... :)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FuqfogIc2GnU%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DuqfogIc2GnU&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FuqfogIc2GnU%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> It's during a <strong>trip to New York</strong> that I re-discovered <strong>THE coffee</strong>, like they really know how to do it over there : subtle espressos, powerful flavours, many ways of drinking it, ...  very interesting to me, the "petit noir de comptoir" lover <em>(=espresso served in french brasseries</em>).</p> <p>  </p> <p> Real lively places, where I spent a lot of time, alone or with friends, to enjoy the casual, relaxed and cosy atmosphere but to learn as well how to make those delicious coffees.</p> <p>  </p> <p> And cherry on the cake, I found there my favorite <strong>pastries </strong>: cookies, muffins, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls... Pretty cool, isn't? :)</p> <p>  </p> <p> Back to Paris, it was time to take stock of the situation : 30 years old, ex manager of a company, I've dreamed for years of combining my two hobbies : cooking and crafts... So why not taking the plunge ?</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>So... deal ! I am going to open my COFFEE HOUSE and my CRAFT STUDIO in Paris !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>That's how is born CC, the Café Créatif !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Descriptif_cafe_cc_in_en-1431531426" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/197540/descriptif_cafe_cc_in_EN-1431531426.png"></p> <p> Today CC, is about to open .. but still... I need you !!</p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>Why crowdfunding and how does it works ?</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> Even if I succeed in getting some financing, I still need extra funds to open café CC. And as I wanted to give a real human dimension to my project, I thought about the crowdfunding solution.</p> <p>  </p> <p> This fund-raising is really important to me so I can start my business in the best conditions.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The idea is to allow you to participate in the creation of CC by making a financial contribution : you really play your part in CC's creation ! In exchange, you will receive a present (which value is proportionate to your donation).</p> <p>  </p> <p> You can follow the fund raising campaign on line here on kisskissbankbank.com (and on the social networks too) and you will be informed precisely of the investments I will do with your contributions.</p> <p>  </p> <p> -- the website (100% secured) KissKissBankBank allows you to donate <strong>the amount of your choice.</strong></p> <p> -- the <strong>"gifts" list </strong>is available on the right side of the page.</p> <p> -- If the fund raising wouldn't aim its goal <strong>after 30 days, you will be totally paid off.</strong></p> <p> <strong>-- If you have any question, feel free to contact me directly or through the form at the bottom of that page.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> I will frequently keep you updated of what is going on at CC's and of course will tell you as soon as we are opened ! Please don't hesitate to share this page... I count on you to give me the very last hand in this beautiful adventure !!</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Thank you for following my story &amp; my project until now and see you very soon ...</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>CC ;)</strong></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> This fund-raising will be <strong>totally used for the renovation, furniture and decoration of CC</strong>, so it's going to be this cosy and nice place for a coffee break, a brainstorming session, or a friendly lunch.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Without revealing you everything, here are some ideas of what I have in mind...</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> - <strong>Mismatched furniture bought in second hand shops, flee markets, at Emmaus, leboncoin.fr, garage sales, etc...</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Goat-1426605352" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/174866/goat-1426605352.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Like <u>for instance : </u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A couch like the one in the "Central Perk" from F.R.I.E.N.D.S (~700€ on leboncoin.fr)</strong></p> <p> <strong>A wood coffee table (~50€ on leboncoin.fr) </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Central-perk-1426605620" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/174870/Central-perk-1426605620.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>An old vintage chair (110€ </strong><strong>on leboncoin.fr</strong><strong>), some old high school stools (50€ </strong><strong>on leboncoin.fr</strong><strong>)</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Fauteuil_et_tabourets-1431002043" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/195096/fauteuil_et_tabourets-1431002043.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A console table, drapery style, to keep the Craft Kits (~250€ </strong><strong>on leboncoin.fr</strong><strong>)</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Console-1431002364" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/195102/console-1431002364.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A lot of bistrot tables (~110€ </strong><strong>on leboncoin.fr</strong><strong>) and a lot of </strong><strong>bistrot seats (~180€ </strong><strong>on leboncoin.fr</strong><strong>)</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Table_et_chaises-1431003072" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/195106/table_et_chaises-1431003072.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> - On the floor <strong>a replica of old tiles (1236€ at Mosaic Del Sur)</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Carrelage-1426605465" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/174868/carrelage-1426605465.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>- For the decoration some wood shelves with cable suspensions (46,77€ l'unité at la Redoute)</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="_tag_re-1431002696" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/195104/_tag_re-1431002696.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>- And many more surprises for the coffee room and the kitchen that I keep for myself for now... because we never know ... if the fund-raising would go beyond 3 000 € ... There are still things you could contribuite for, like  :</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> - A set of 3 vases (37€ at Hema)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="3_vases-1431003520" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/195109/3_vases-1431003520.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> - Some pilows for the bench, so you are comfortably seated (6.99€ per unit at Conforama)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Coussin-1431003849" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/195111/coussin-1431003849.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> - one (or two) fairy lights to recall those you find everywhere in NYC (~45€ on Amazon)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Guirlande-1431004730" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/195121/guirlande-1431004730.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Voilà... I could go on like this for long because ideas are not really missing ! j</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>I count on you guys !
