Stephanie Agatonovic, Funky Eclectic
“Hi, I am Stephanie Agatonovic, the creative mind behind Funky Eclectic. I am a stained glass artist, I create unique glass pieces in the timeless Tiffany style. With a background in fine arts, I seamlessly blend artistic expression with the intricate craftsmanship required for stained glass work. I first started working in Stained glass in 2022 and have been in love with the medium since. My love for art and the multitude of mediums and styles lead me to the word eclectic. The funky part is just how I would describe my tastes in colors, subject matter and life."
Abby Eshbaugh, Water Love Creative
“Water Love Creative is a woman-owned small business that creates one-of-a-kind ice dyed apparel and accessories. Each piece is hand dyed using high-quality professional dye and ice. As the ice melts it creates unique designs - no two pieces are the same!"
Sahithya Wintrich, Chutni Punch
“Chutni Punch is a line of dry shelf-stable spice condiment powders inspired by South Indian family recipes. The three flavors: Savory Chana, Super Sesame and Spicy Peanut are tasty, easy to use and contain real ingredients. You need zero cooking skills to use them and they’re fun, exciting and versatile. The ingredients are equitably sourced and the packaging is environmentally conscious. The best thing is, you can use it on foods you already eat to make them MORE FLAVORFUL!"
Allan Smith, Fjord and Fable
“FJORD AND FABLE is a small home and body brand based in Pittsburgh, PA that hand-pours pure soy-based candles and other aromatic goods. Each of their products is carefully scented with essential oil-infused fragrances that contain no harmful chemicals such as prop 65, phthalates, or parabens. These chemicals are often present in mainstream brands and can have a significant impact on both indoor air quality and skin health. At FJORD AND FABLE, every ingredient used in their products is meticulously tested and researched to ensure the highest quality for customers' homes."
Beverly Vinch, Washed Ashore Jewelry
“Washed Ashore Jewelry, LLC is out of Avon Lake. We find and create pieces from found Lake Erie beach glass and shipwreck pottery. Not only do we do silversmithed jewelry, we also feature Coastal Art from the shores of Lake Erie."
Jen Davis, Edifice Art
“I'm Jen from Edifice Art. I describe myself as an Energy Artist. I create jewelry, divination boards, tarot card holders, crystal holders, woodcut lamps and many bookish things. I give each and every piece I create intention and trust that it finds the person who was meant to have it!"
Melanie Fellows, Wonder Lust Concepts
“Wonder Lust Concepts began in classic fashion while I was wearing something I had made for myself and realized there was an opportunity to share my craft. WLC has certainly evolved over the past seven years including a collaboration along with expanding into home and plant decor, but the quality of product and attention to detail has never wavered. As I have grown and expanded as an artist I have tried to stay true to my original goals of using raw and up cycled material whenever possible and bring back the beauty of something that may have been forgotten. I prefer to work with raw stones in my jewelry and look forward to adding more stone work to my macrame collection this year. While plant hangers tend to be my most focused area I try to keep them interesting with fun and unique adornments to be functional and a conversation piece to add to you living space."
