The Fancy Shop of Important Things
Are you ready to take a trip to an otherworldly land where ancient motifs and psychedelic patterns adorn the landscape? Then look no further as you enter into The Fancy Shop of Important Things. Once there you feel as if you've fallen down the rabbit hole and are transported to a fantasy land all of your own making.
That's the beauty of their craft, as a healthy imagination is essential to making a fancy hat! Owners Bridget and Max source antique and one of a kind fabrics to bring their unconventional and extrordinary works to life. They're the perfect item to adorn your head this festival season.
Extraterrestrial. Intergalactic. Magical. Think My Little Ponies in outer space. Those are all the vibes you'll be putting out when you're suited up in Cosmic Unicornz gear.
Being a fashion designer, illustrator and painter, Melissa Thyden, wanted to bring her wild, colorful energy to life, thus creating her lifestyle brand Cosmic Unicornz. She features custom, one of a kind dresses, hand-painted shoes and denim, silkscreened t-shirts, handmade accessories and artwork.
Aren't you just loving all the colors?!

Firestarter, twisted Firestarter! Play with fire and you're bound to get burned; unless you're a skilled performance artist like Lindsay Nicole. Then the only thing that's bound to get burned is your eyes from how lit she makes it.
A fan of movement and how we as humans are able to manipulate our bodies, Lindsay takes a no nonsense approach to the art of flow. Consistently pushing boundaries and honing her craft in all things performance; from Aerial Silks, Aerial Hammock, Trapeze and Partner Acrobatics.
