Serious Lip Balm
At SERIOUS LIP BALM, our mission is to create skincare products that are all-natural, handmade and good for you while also playing our part to help support our communities and everyone we come across.
SERIOUS LIP BALM unknowingly launched in 2014 when Khara Koffel and Megan Luckey created a small batch of lip balms in Khara’s kitchen as holiday gifts for daycare teachers; they soon discovered a mutual passion for creating handmade and useful gifts while making people laugh. Serious Lip Balm quickly escalated from a way to give something heartfelt to teachers to a fully-fledged business with more than 15 products and hundreds of SKUs. Need some non-greasy whipped lotion for your dry skin? We’ve got that. Beard balm to tame a dude’s facial hair? We make that, too! How about some Bug Stuff to keep the mosquitoes from ruining your picnic or a whiskey-scented lip balm for Uncle Brian? OF COURSE WE MAKE THAT. Everything we create is loving handmade from the best ingredients, works like a charm and doesn’t contain any of those nasty chemicals that we all worry about.
In addition, we also really take a lot of pride in working with our local communities to support the people and world that have made this little-business-that-could become more than we ever dreamed. From bookmobile fundraisers to donations to Pediatric Cancer foundations, we think we need to do everything we can to support each other and help each other grow and flourish. As a matter of fact, a bunch of our products are created at Elm City Center, a rehabilitation center in Jacksonville, Illinois, that employs amazing individuals who have all different kinds of emotional, behavioral or mental setbacks that make it difficult for them to find employment in the community; it’s an amazing partnership, and we value it more than we can say. Serious Lip Balm isn’t just about us, it’s about everyone we work with and everyone we come across as well as our kickass products.
We simply cannot wait to work with you.

Colores Del Mar
Lake City, FL
We are a husband and wife team creating timeless accessories that are a blend of today’s style and traditional Mexican techniques. Colores Del Mar was started as a way to support the artisinal trades in Mexico and share its unique culture with the world.
Our Oaxaca bags are handwoven by a team of skilled artisans in the mountains of Oaxaca, MX. We use recycled plastic to create the bags, ensuring they are durable, water-resistant, easy to clean. This makes our Oaxaca totes the perfect bags to take to the beach, on a picnic, or to a market. We also partner with families in a small town in Chiapas MX. to create our handmade pom-poms and bracelets.
The preservation and growth of Mexico’s artisinal trades are very important to us, as we strongly believe in supporting artisans and local communities. Each purchase helps conserve their art and encourages them to continue doing what they love.
