Meet our Lake Affect makers

Our annual holiday show at Lake Affect is Saturday December 3rd from 10:00 a.m. til 7:00 p.m. and we love this venue for a lot of reasons!

RSVP here and invite your friends!


Amira Fahmy, baked AF (Food) Online | Facebook | Instagram

"My name is Amira Fahmy (hence AF) and I'm the baker behind the throwback snacks. I'm a brown girl who was raised by a single dad in the 90s, and I grew up with an endless love for all things Little Debbie, Hostess, and Nabisco. A few years ago I set out to build a business around making baked goods that would bring people joy. I bounced around with a few different ideas, but once I made my first batch of oatmeal cream pies (aka OCPs), it instantly became clear: throwback snacks are just kind of my jam. Since then, we've expanded our lineup from OCPs to other throwback classics, all scratch-made from quality ingredients plus a little bit of science and a lot of whimsy at our bakery in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. While I'm not a vegan bakery, the majority of my baked goods do happen to be 100% plant based."

In February 2019, I created my own cottage industry side hustle, Sweet Thing Baked Goods. Since then, it has been my pleasure to bake cookies for all sorts of special occasions: birthdays, bridal showers, baby showers, graduations, holidays, and "just because." If you have an idea you want to see come to life as a cookie, please contact me!

Rick Sans, vinyl record art (Home Decor) Online | Facebook | Instagram

"Did you know it takes 1000 years for a record to biodegrade? Since 2007 we have taken old, worn out vinyl records people donate to us and turned them into colorful wall art. We have saved over 60k records from the landfill giving them a second life and purpose in making people's spaces happier. Design-wise we do around 1000 different designs with a variety ranging from over 50 different Cleveland themed designs to fan art referencing our favorite TV, movie and video game characters; as well as a number of boho and nature influenced images. Actors from the Walking Dead, My Hero Academia, and Outlander own records we made, as well as our records being used on a HGTV show in 2018. We do a number of other forms of art on other mediums, but this has always been our most popular. Primarily our designs are done with hand cut stencils, but there is a growing number that we screen print. At our events we set up display walls showing our newest designs, and fill up at table with storage crates filled with additional designs. Part of the fun is digging through crates how record stores used to display them, only now customers are crate digging for new wall art."

Bili Kribbs (Cards + Paper) Online | Facebook | Instagram

"The Extravaganza of Strange is a celebration of all things weird and whimsical. I create completely original paintings, digital prints, and miniature resin sculptures of the characters in my head. My style is surreal, immersive, colorful, over-the-top, with a balance of both horror and whimsy. I’m often asked "what were you on when you painted this?" - both a compliment, and a depressing commentary on the assumption that creativity has to be fueled by chemicals. My inspiration comes from my background in animation, as well as toys, puppets, video games, comic books, and cos-play. I’m inspired by past creatives like Jim Henson, H.P. Lovecraft, and Dr. Seuss, as well as modern creatives like Tim Burton, Wayne White, Craola, Dulk, and Alex Pardee. I love reimagining ideas into something cooler and stranger, merging nostalgia with whimsy, and most of all, exploring new techniques and crazy ideas."

"Cayligraphy is a pun-tastic name I grew into when I combined my given name and my chosen field. It's always evolving as I do and it's rarely serious, usually silly, and amiably simple. Each Cayligraphy piece begins as an inky hand-lettered or drawn illustration that is deeply inspired by Mother Nature, sending goodness, and laughing your pants off with your friends at 2am. Fueled by my staunch appreciation of--and dedication to--art being fused into our lives, those pieces will become prints, stickers, cards, notebooks, and reusable bags. I revel in branching out into delightful new mediums and have been known to put a Cayligraphy spin on pyrography, glass painting, leatherwork, screen printed goodies, and more. I believe that what we make matters, and how we make matters just as much, so I plant a tree for every two stickers sold via my Love Your Mother program, print with wind power on recycled paper, produce my reusable bags in small batches with a factory in Mexico that treats their workers with respect and pays them well, and am working toward becoming completely plastic neutral."
