PEONY FLOWERING TEA

LUCCA PAPERWORKS

ABOUT

Lucca Paperworks “vintage art rescue” greeting cards started after years of collecting vintage ephemera by Francine Katz and Peter Riches. In 2010, what began as an experimental addition to our Seattle gift shop, LUCCA great finds, turned into a wholesale line with over 300 designs. A favorite theme is animals, especially cats, acting as humans, which we find irresistibly charming and amusing. From our studio in Seattle, we print the cards to order (never any backorders!) on luxurious paper, with satin-like ink, bold color, and a presentation like a matted print that makes them perfect for framing.

ABOUT

Portland's most colorful, authentic, and empowering publishing house and distributor, Microcosm Publishing equips readers to make positive changes in their lives and in the world around them. Microcosm emphasizes skill-building, showing hidden histories, and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom with books and zines about DIY skills, food, bicycling, gender, self-care, and social justice. Microcosm has lived in milk crates, in closets, in a mud room, in a windowless basement, in a church, and under a desk at a major credit card company. We've brought our brightly colored books to infoshops, zine fests, media summits, bicycle conferences, parks, street corners, house shows, dirty bars, all­ night coffeeshops, art museums, and every corner of the mainstream where we can clear away a little space to set up shop. We set out to save ourselves from not caring, but out there in the margins we've found communities worth always doing it better for. Now we have contracts instead of handshakes, a warehouse instead of a fanny pack full of zines. We have a staff, we have relationships in the industry that send our books to places we wouldn't have dreamed we could walk into ourselves. We're not as drunk or dirty as we used to be. But still, at heart, we've got this milk crate strapped to the back of a bike and we're riding wildly across town to hand you the book that might just be the one that saves your life!

MOONLIGHT MAKERS

ABOUT

We met when we became neighbors and our 3 kids became instant friends. After just a few months we knew we wanted to go into business together. We discussed so many different ideas and ended up merging them all into one to start Moonlight Makers on February 2nd 2015!

We built our website, bought and renovated our short bus and hit our first festival that May. We have spent weekends going to Events and Shows with the bus ever since! Online orders kept us busy shipping during the week, screen printing on our kitchen counters kept us busy at night. We started drawing more and more designs and launched our brand into the wholesale market.

During Christmas 2016 we hosted a Seasonal Pop-Up Shop in Downtown Asheville, NC and we loved the feeling of having a store! We hired our first help, took our screen printing setup out of our kitchens, our warehouse out of our basements and fell completely in love with having a location and a growing team. On Halloween 2017 we moved across the street into gorgeous, old photography studio. As of Spring 2021 our products are in 1000+ Stores Across the Globe, we have 300+ fun designs, we love custom printing, we screen print everything to order by hand and we now have 6 kids between us!

FIG AND OWL STUDIO

ABOUT

In 2019, after I was laid off from my job in information technology, I decided 23 years in tech was enough. Luckily, my husband was in a similar frame of mind. We sold our house in Asheville and moved back to my family home in rural Morganton NC.

Fig and Owl Studio is my new venture. I converted my Dad’s detached garage into a ceramic studio and committed to improving my craft. Working everyday in the studio has really improved my work. I’m so excited about this new chapter of my life!

OLIVE & SINCLAIR CHOCOLATE CO

ABOUT

Olive & Sinclair is Tennessee's first and only bean-to-bar chocolate company. Slow-roasted and stone-ground, O&S was founded in 2007. O&S takes pride in their take on bean-to-bar chocolate known as Southern Artisan Chocolate™. O&S Chocolate begins with stone-grinding cacao, inspired by the method used for stone ground grits, using melangeurs (stone mills) from the early 1900's. Only pure cane brown sugar is added for a robust flavor and slow sweetness that is definitive of Southern Artisan Chocolate™. The concept has continued to define itself with the invention of buttermilk white chocolate, aging cacao in bourbon barrels, Duck Fat Caramels, collaborations with other Southern makers such as Allen Benton for our Smoked Nib Brittle and more!
