I make whimsical watercolor paintings of landmarks of my hometown, as well as international places. I like making each of my piece playful and childlike to evoke a memory of places you’ve been, places you’re going to, or places you’ve dreamt of. I get so excited when I see people walk up to my booth with a glow to their eyes as they explain what each painted building/staple area reminds them of.

Melissa Wrin

Hi I’m Melissa, the founder of Sweet Melissa Honey & Hive. I make natural skincare products with a beeswax base. We are beekeepers who were inspired to develop natural products for everyday needs after our daughter had a seizure. Not knowing the cause, but that environmental factors could be involved, the focus became to not only eliminate the toxins but to make products that are safe for the entire family. We’ve continued to expand our product line over the past five years.

Janelle Milne

Hi! Im Janelle owner of Moonchylde Collective. I design gold filled jewelry and curate a women’s boutique. I love the creative process- from designing a piece- to seeing it come to life. I also love the visual merchandising process- and VL is a huge part in all my display setups.


hello! i’m loree, owner and creator of loreerosequartz which specializing in handmade crystal jewelry accessories that is inspired by my filipino culture and nostalgia such as anime and pop culture. my WHY is because i love crafts and crystals and i thought of what’s a better way to inspire and have people see what is in my mind than to make my own jewelry. i love being able to curate collections and designs on my own to share with everyone and it always brings joy to my face when i see my designs in the wild as they call it. i do this because i love it. i’m so grateful for all the ups and downs that this small business has given me and the opportunities and people that i have met along the way. it’s only just getting started and after two years of doing this i can’t wait to see what’s in store.


I started my business Fern&Nettle in spring of 2013 making cold-process soaps and some herbal salves. Since then I’ve expanded to more products, including room sprays and candles. It’s been great building this from a side hustle to my full-time work. I’ve been able to meet and connected with countless amazing people along the way!
