  • a.j.leMay.images
    A.J. LeMay grew up in Wyandotte, Michigan. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Photography and a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast & Cable Productions from Western Michigan University. She currently lives and works in Kalamazoo, Michigan. A.J. believes a finished product is just as important as the technical means that the image was created with. She shoots almost entirely in 35mm slide film and converts these photographs into Polaroid and Fuji Emulsion Transfers. Her classic photographs reflect the innate and sometimes ornate details of her travels, adventures, and everyday life.

  • Small Objects Jewelry
    Small Objects Jewelry is a one-woman handmade jewelry smorgasbord hailing from Ann Arbor, MI.

Mary Kate has been making pretty things for as long as she can remember. She participated in last year's South University Art Fair (in Ann Arbor) and has sold at several smaller sales and boutiques, but has never been a vendor at a music festival!

  • Re-Zip It!
    Hi my name is Heather and I heart zippers. I am a full time working, married, mother of a beautiful boy named Benjamin. I work in a jail, as a therapist, with individuals that battle from issues related to drugs and alcohol. This career choice came after growing up in a family of addiction. I have a very stressful job and have learned over the years that it is important for me to have some form of release. My creative mind allows to express myself while making others smile and keeping the earth GREEN all at the same time!

  • Underground Printing
    The story of Underground Printing really started in 1992. That's when UGP co-founders Rishi Narayan and Ryan Gregg met in 6th grade. Hundreds of pickup basketball games and several broken eyeglasses later, they became best friends, paving the way for the creation of the Underground Printing we know now.

  • Caitilin Creations
    Recycling's the name, sewing's the game!
    I've always liked making, well, stuff. My salable focus has been mainly towards skirts, jewelry, hair-accessories and lately - CRITTERS! Most all of my stuff is made from rejected items, which helps keep my cost down and affordable to you and out of the expansive landfills. Win-win! Coming soon: shirts, dresses, more bags and neck ties too.
