Jenny Chalk, Jenny Chalk Doodles
“I draw and sell my art as prints, greeting cards, stickers, and clothing/home accessories (shirts, hats, hand towels). I describe my work as happy, positive and fun - with a side of pizza. My favorite part of drawing and selling my work is seeing people smile when they look at it. (Also I LOVE Valentine's Day!)"
Robyn Peterson Durlin, NARFdesign
“NARFdesign (Nearly All Robyn’s Fantastic design) is a collection of sea/beach glass jewelry created by Robyn Peterson Durlin, inspired by her love of beachcombing while kayaking on Lake Erie. The sea/beach glass in each beach/nautical/abstract jewelry design can be traced to a specific coastal region, and primarily features glass that she has hand-picked herself."
“We make dog collars, bowties, collar flowers, bandanas and t-shirts. We also design fabric for our products so that you can get custom and unique patterns for your pup. We are passionate about animal rescue and donate a portion of all sales to local rescues in Northeast Ohio."
Diana Jankowski, Sugar Bomb Confections
“Sugar Bomb Confections is a Cleveland-based maker of fine chocolates and baked goods."
Danielle Gura, Firelands Wax
“Experience the natural and nostalgic scents of Northern Ohio with artisanal, handcrafted soy candles from Firelands Wax. Each locally inspired, seasonal candle is made with domestically grown soy wax, pure cotton wicks, and toxin-free fragrance oils for a clean and long lasting burn that's enjoyable for even sensitive consumers. Handcrafted by owner and artisan Danielle Gura in her home outside of Oberlin, Firelands Wax offers a premium, locally inspired option for candle lovers who enjoy both simplicity and seasonality in their homes."
Gina Giallombardo, Freeze Dried Cleveland
“We make delicious freeze dried candy. We have everyone’s favorites and a few fantastic flavor combinations that are out of this world. We also make custom patty trays for all occasions."
Erica + Sarah Kurfis, Snarky Pants Studios
“We're sisters from Ohio creating unique, playfully irreverent gifts for those people who are snarky at heart. First Sarah sketches an idea, then Erica makes it perfect and sends it out for printing. We turn our designs into greeting cards, vinyl stickers, canvas bags, enamel keychains, pins and buttons, scout-style achievement badges for your pets to earn for protecting you against the mailman, hiding a bone, or bringing you the best "gift", and Sarah crochets super cute amigurumi plush toys, like turtles and bees!
Charles Strasshofer, Chuck Stuff
“Currently a one-man operation, Chuck is dedicated to crafting strong, elegant ceramics. Shapes and edges define the current body of work, through angles thrown into the shape of the pot and in the use of abstract glaze decorations over the pots. There's a rigorous testing phase between formulating each glaze from scratch and the point the glaze is deemed acceptable for coating the ceramic. The glazes used on his work are fine-tuned to ensure the strength and durability of his wares without compromising style and beauty. Chuck Stuff are all one-of-a-kind pieces that celebrate the materials used to create them."
