Laura McGuinness, Laura McGuinness Designs
“Laura McGuinness Designs makes one of a kind pieces of jewelry using silver and semi-precious gemstones. Laura prefers to make unique pieces because doing anything more than twice bores her silly. She is inspired by nature (particularly the ocean and all creatures in it), texture, color, and shape. Ably assisted by her regular consumption of an entirely unreasonable amount of coffee, Laura hopes to create something that you will love and wear for years to come."
Lorissa Schaefer, Lorissa Schaefer Designs
“My artwork is rooted in what I find aesthetically pleasing in the environment around me. I find pleasure in objects that are odd, curious, dainty, retro, and colorful. It is with these objects that I try to find the humor within them, and illustrate what comes to mind. I use bold lines and colors to do this referencing styles that can be found in old school tattooing techniques and the super graphic ultra modern movement. My medium of choice is a digital program and tablet."
Krystal Tomlinson, Live. Dream. Create.
“With a range of handsewn felt and fleece plushies, stuffed animals, felt foods, and playsets that can double as decorative items/desk buddies - there’s bound to smiles and fun for kids and adults of all ages!"
Samantha Bako, Figment Pudding
“I create original art using digital tools that is predominantly frog-themed, sometimes pop culture based, and usually a bit odd. I use my art to create prints, stickers, magnets, as well as useful things like coasters, mugs, notebooks and other stationery. My mission is to open a keyhole to the awe and wonder of nature through whimsical cartoons and fantastical illustrations, to run barefoot through the fields of the mind, to curiously wriggle our toes in the mud and goo of the mundane instead of letting it bog us down. figmentpudding celebrates and embraces weirdness and exalts the awkward. Sometimes we’re adorable, sometimes we’re scandalous, sometimes we’re adorably scandalous. But always we remember to: BE THE WEIRD YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD"
Sade Simmons, Sugar For Brains
“Handmade essentials for everyday, effortless style and those extra quirky moments. Small batch wearables inspired by the urban element or pop culture. ,meshed with timeless drip. We create the pieces that make your outfit the backdrop."
Jason Ewing, Ohio Beard Company
“Ohio Beard Company was launched in 2018 as a passion project after I began growing a beard for the first time. I found myself disappointed in the beard care options at big box stores so I decided to start making my own.

We believe proper beard care is important for the overall health of the beard, the face and the beardsman.
