Floral & Soy

Owner: Kelsey Karnes

Business Location: Riverton, KS
Business Type: Homemade, 100% Soy Wax & Essential Oil Candles
I started Floral & Soy with a vision of beautiful, HEALTHY candles. Floral & Soy candles are made entirely from all natural soy wax. Soy wax is non-toxic and burns slower than what most candles are made of, paraffin wax. Paraffin wax releases carcinogens, which are used in things like insecticides and chemical fertilizers. My candles are also made with therapeutic grade essential oils. Essential oils are the “soul” of a plant and have been proven to have benefits to your physical and emotional wellness. Topping the candles with a melting flower, filled with real flowers, pressed and dried by me, adds a bit of elegance to draw you into its medicinal scent and warm glow.
I strive to make healthy candles for you and your family to have in your home. I hope you ENJOY!

BeYOU-tifully Made Designs

About

My name is Rachel Ogle, owner and creator of BeYou-tifully Made Designs located in Southeast Kansas. I was raised in Riverton, Kansas, where I went to school and met the love of my life, Matthew. Just after High School, I started my college career at NEO A&M College, where I graduated with an Associated in Applied Science and then became a Physical Therapy Assistant. I have always loved helping others, but I hold a special place in my heart for the elder generation. Just a few years after marriage and getting my career underway, we decided to start our family. Just shortly after, Matt and I were blessed with twin boys. Our boys have us very busy, as you can imagine, with school, sports, and everything outdoors. We are so thankful every day for the joy that they have brought into our lives.

I have always had a special love for crafting and making things for others. I have adventured through many crafting avenues through the years, and now I have found a way to design and create one-of-a-kind products. I make a variety of items, from personalized gifts to leather patch hats, and my most popular items are earrings and jewelry pieces. My favorite thing about BeYou-tifully Made Designs is that it allows me to work part-time and have a flexible schedule, so I don’t have to miss out on any of my boy’s activities.

No matter where life takes you, remember you are wonderfully and BeYOU-tifully Made.

Frankie Addams

Owner: Sarah Sizemore
Business Located: Baxter Springs, KS
Business Type (Products Offered): Add a bit of whimsy from a wide range of eclectic handmade and personally curated items for the unique individual.  Inspirations come from classic horror movies, the vintage aesthetic, and dripping in ’90s/early ’00s flair.  From stickers, keychains, jewelry, and more, there’s definitely something by Frankie for everyone.

About

During the pandemic and after years of doing nothing artistically, Sarah grabbed her iPad and got to work.  Digitally creating art and thriving on the freedom of being creative again.  It didn’t take long for her love for the iconic Kewpie ( originally created by the Ozark native Rose O’Neill ) to take over.  Dragging her down a path where she began dressing them up as some of her favorite characters.  Even going as far as to make what she calls her “Little Buddies”.  All of which have their own name and personality.
​After a friend suggested she share her art online, Sarah created an Instagram. But she needed a name.  “Frankie Addams” comes from her favorite universal monster, the Bride from Frankenstein, and the Addams Family.  And just like that, Frankie Addams was born.
​Sarah became more than just a small-town goth who loves pink and loves to draw, but a small business owner selling her creations all over the States!  Attempting to spread happiness,  good vibes,  and a few spooky scares along the way!

The Waving Wheat Boutique

Owner: Josie Chrz
Business Located: Quapaw, OK & within Erickson & Co Mercantile
WWB mainly carries women’s clothing and accessories with the goal in mind of uplifting and embracing women by bringing fashion that instills confidence and beauty! One year ago, we extended our collection to create custom pure leather patch items. We create leather patch hats, leather signs, leather tags, and leather patches for numerous items our customers want customized!
