Cheesecake Handmade Beauty, Laura George and Purpleandlime

It's time for round two of our vendor profiles! We'll kick this one off with Cheesecake Handmade Beauty's delightfully handmade bath and body products.

Cheesecake Handmade Beauty

Cheesecake Handmade Beauty™ is an all natural, environmentally friendly, handmade bath and body product company. Our product lines are intended to appeal to the environmentally conscious, animal lovers, and all who enjoy cute, good smelling stuff! They are designed to be affordable, without sacrificing quality, and natural, without sacrificing the rock 'n’ roll, pin-up inspired aesthetic that we love so much!

Their soaps smell good enough to eat and we adore their witty package designs! We love that they use tons of essential oils and NO harsh chemicals. Give the gift of delectably scented cleanliness this year! They have something for everyone!


Laura George Art & Illustration

Laura Berger is an self-taught artist and illustrator based in Chicago, Illinois.
Working primarily with gouache, acrylic, and ink, her art is currently centered around dreamlike lands, surreal characters, and smatterings of pattern.  Illustrative in nature, her work is inspired by the idea of finding novelty in everyday life, and the adventure in opening up to unlikely companions and fantastic situations.

We love Laura's work, it's fresh and looks great all sizes. We're sure you'll find a piece that's perfect for someone you love!


My line is fun and colorful.  The sewn pouches are made from
eco-friendly recycled-bottle felt and non-toxic glue.  Jewelry
includes laser-cut states and animal shapes, jeweled plastic cats on
chunky chain, and Swarovski crystals combined with various metals.
Other plastic animal jewelry is made from my own childhood toys that
I've repurposed and reused.  I also make scarves and mittens out of
fleece and fake fur.

Purpleandlime is an expression of my love of fashion and art.  I am
very much inspired by exotic wildlife and unique cultures of the
world, along with familiar and comforting themes like junk food and
childhood treasures.  My jewelry and accessories are humorous and
playful- designed to make the wearer feel happier and more confident.

We find Purpleandlime's work to be fun, colorful and practical. Her items are well made and you can see the love and wit that goes into making them!
