Whether it’s painting, beading, weaving, sewing or magazine collage Nicole is always down to
experiment with any form of art. Through the years upcycling became an important part of how she
creates. Using materials like old pieces of jewelry to create new jewelry, old t-shirts into decorative
pillow covers & bags, wine corks and old wood pieces into trivets and vision boards, even a previously
painted canvas & expired magazines can be turned into a new piece of wall art. You can find Nicole on Facebook as Nicole Samuels, on Instagram @8earthdancer8 or through email firstname.lastname@example.org
Avery Shane Co
Born and raised in South Florida, I have been creating for more than two decades. I moved to Jacksonville in 2007 and began selling my art five years later. I draw inspiration from anything be it my love of true crime, tattoos & movies, to my Hungarian Romani heritage. I cannot stick to one aesthetic and my shop beautifully reflects that in a multitude of mediums. I wanted to share my love for creating and art with everyone which is why I do what I do with my shop. You can find more on my Instagram @averyshaneco or my online shop:
Art by Maddi
Hello, my name is Madison McKenzie! I was born, raised, and still reside in sunny St Augustine, Florida. I am a painter and a graphic design student at Flagler College. I enjoy painting on canvases with acrylic paint, and usually end up reflecting my love for traditional tattoo art, horror movies, and my hometown in my art pieces. I also create jewelry, shirts, stickers, more based off my hand painted or digital work. Check out my website www.artbymaddi904.com or my Instagram @artbymaddi.904 to shop or stay posted on my latest artwork!
JuJuBees Studio started in 2020 as a way for me to combine my
love of jewelry making with my appreciation for the honey bee. After
graduating Flagler College in 2019 with a degree in Fine Art, I began
to think of what I actually had a passion for. Once I got polymer clay
in my hands, I realized I was able to create a wide range of pieces
ranging from earrings to coasters and everything in between. My
business is young, but I am full of passion and ready to create
something for everyone to love.

My name is Brittney VanGemert and I'm the owner and founder of Fairytale Headquarters .
On November 6, 2014 , I was a passenger in a traumatic car accident. During my recovery I wanted to come up with a way to pay back to those who have helped me get through that difficult time.
I was a huge fan of cosplay and all throughout middle school and high school, I would travel to different conventions dressed as my favorite characters from various television shows.
During my lengthy stay in Shands Hospital , after I was fully recovered I wanted to dress as Disney-inspired characters and spend time on the weekends spreading magic at local hospitals.
I also wanted to combine my love for dressing up with a way to give back. So I came up with an idea to have true to life characters be able to visit your little one for any event in their life.
Fairytale Headquarters currently offers princesses and superheroes , as well as villains, with so much more to come!

My name is Diana, creator, and owner of Attia Designs, a minority-owned company. I named my company after my 4-year-old daughter, Isabella Delali Attia. Attia means gift in West Africa.
I was born and raised in Belize, CA, and came to the U.S. in 2007 to further my education. I am married to an amazing hubby and I have two children, Bella (4) and Enzo (2).
So, why earrings? I am completely obsessed with earrings and came across polymer clay earrings while browsing the internet one day. Quarantine from the pandemic gave me a lot of much needed time to explore my passions. The best part for me is putting my own style and unique perspective into every design. I put a lot of love and thought into each earring. The collection you see is an expression of my style. I switch up on any given day and love to add variety.
I hope you love my earrings as much as I enjoy making them for you!
Love and light-Diana
Haiya, I am Cheyenne or Chey,
creator of Chey Dyes from a small town called DeBary that I’ve lived in my entire life. You'll find me almost smack dab in the middle or Daytona and Orlando.
Chey Dyes is size inclusive ranging from XS-4X+ because I know how it feels to never find your size or be able to find those affordable yet trendy clothes. For me, dyed tees were never just a trend and have always caught my eye stylistically.
Alongside of CheyDyes, after losing my job of 5+ years, I’m also going back to school and am currently enrolled at Valencia College for digital media. I started booking events because I was really missing out on social interactions and meeting new people every day - an experience I had while working at the theme parks. I’ve always loved strolling through pop-up events and being supportive of small businesses and now I take pride in also being a part of this wonderful community. Being a small business owner can be momentous at times but using the opportunities of owning a small business is what’s supporting me through school. A feeling that will never truly feel like more than just a dream forming into reality.
Hello! I’m Christina and I’m the owner of ADEN. While I’ve always had an undying love for candles, every time I lit one I would end up with headaches and nausea. After falling down a rabbit hole of research, thanks google, I came to understand just how toxic most household candles are. I set out to make non-toxic, eco-friendly, vegan candles that did not sacrifice quality. That’s when I launched ADEN, a company that values transparency. I offer luxurious, minimalist designed scented candles that bring comfort and relaxation to every home. You can find me at local markets and events. Stay updated on all things ADEN: Instagram @aden.company | website https://adencompany.shop

The Gilded Bubble
I've lived in St. Augustine most of my life, but my business is relatively new. I found my love of soap-making during quarantine and quickly decided I wanted to turn my passion into a business.

I love using bright colors and light, refreshing scents for a beautiful, great-smelling soap that cleanses without drying.

My name is Adjani! ( Ad+Jay+Nee) I have always loved jewelry. Being born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I saw fashion everywhere. I loved seeing how a piece of jewelry completely changed a look. When I was a little girl, I would spend hours playing in my mother's jewelry box, sometimes when she was getting ready to go out, she would let me select her jewelry, this was my favorite and still one of my favorite memories. On Saturdays, I would go to flea markets and go to every booth that had jewelry! When I was in middle school, I spent my allowance at Claire's! Costume Jewelry has always and still is my favorite.
The Fancy Society story started after years of being a jewelry buyer for boutiques and creating handmade jewelry for friends and myself. I always loved hearing how happy customers were, with the selections I chose and compliments when I wore my pieces. The words " so fancy" were often used.
I wanted to create a brand for the woman that loves to sparkle, live colorfully and be fancy! I spend a lot of time carefully curating and creating a cute and affordable collection.
Be Fancy..Live Fancy!
