Run entirely by professional artists, our hope is not only to provide a fun learning environment, but to also provide access to professional artists in small group settings.
23 Soap Company - Stasis Cosmetics
23 Soap Company was created just over a year ago after my father (a veterinarian and chemist) and I created an all-natural and vegan/organic soap formula to aid my mother's sensitive skin. I moved on to deodorant because I didn't feel the natural brands on the market were as effective as they could be. Soon thereafter came serum, chap stick, lotion and a number of other amazing products that are all natural and very effective.
We are a family owned and operated Raw Hemp based skincare company from New Braunfels, TX. Our ingredients are always Vegan, Gluten Free, Organic and Raw! We look forward to introducing our products to you.

Art by Nicole Clauder
Most of my paintings and ideas are inspired by colors around me, human emotions, and invigoration. Consequently, most of my paintings are particularly vibrant and colorful, and the shapes raw and rough. I believe that when I paint, vigorously and happily, I leave my happiness on the canvas -my work is an extension of me. It is not a result of any goal or perception, rather it’s a piece of my life.
Jeany’s Ginger Elixirs
Jeany's Ginger Elixir is a Caribbean-inspired juice product based on an age-old family recipe from Grenada. We use local, sustainable ingredients whenever possible. Visit us in person every Sunday at HOPE Farmer's market. Online ordering is available at www.jeanysgingerelixir.com.
Shirttail Creek Farm
In the mid 1800s, Wilhelm and Mina Kramer emigrated to the US from what was then Prussia. They built a sturdy wood frame house, worked the land, and raised a family at a time when Texas was still very much a wild frontier.
Today, we continue that tradition with the goal of bringing local and wholesome beef, chicken, and eggs to people in the Austin and Houston areas (and everywhere in between), while raising our own family in the very same house built by the Kramers so long ago.
Hi-Fi Mycology is Austin's first urban mushroom farm offering Blue Oyster, King Oyster, locally foraged Texas Oyster, Chestnut, Black Poplar, and Lions Mane mushrooms.
All ingredients used in the products we sell are grown in the U.S.A. using organic farming practices and are cultivated with naturally-developed genetic strains of industrial hemp. We work directly with hemp farmers to bring you our farm-to-table concept. Straight from the farm, each flower, pre-rolled smokable flower, tincture and bath bomb is customized for you on-site. You can take part in this one-of-a-kind experience at our store location, at a pop up around town, or book us for a private event. Our special strains of smokable pre-rolled hemp flower is a fun, amazing addition for your wedding or special event.
Naer’s Hillside Tribe Jewelry
Our beeswax comes from local Austin beekeepers who treat bees ethically and sell the wax raw and unrefined. Then, we blend that wax with luxurious coconut and apricot waxes, softening the mixture for an even, clean burn and then finally add 100% pure undiluted essential oils for a gorgeous scent that doubles as personal aromatherapy. The result is a candle like no other, which you can feel good about lighting. Free of synthetic fragrances oils, soy, or paraffin.

What makes me do what I do? Well, it was the memories of childhood when I used to buy sugar-coated peanuts from a kid from my town. He would sell them on the street, in small bags, and carry them in a basket; he would say: ’garapiñados lleve sus garapiñados!’” I used to love those candied nuts...but of course my parents would say that too much sugar was bad for me. But that did not make me stop eating candies, especially the ones that I make now; peanut brittle, coconut candy, tamarinds, marzipan, and alegrias (amaranth bars).
