{bib.on – Putting Health Back in Pastries

Market Common Farmers Market – AC Bethea is a Conway native who crafts vegan, gluten free baked goods with love. Visit bibonmeals.com.

How did you begin?

Several years ago, my sister was expecting her first baby and we lived a great distance away. I began creating recipes that would nourish her pregnancy as a way to support her. Over time it evolved into {bib.on.

 What makes {bib.on unique?

My baked goods are vegan and gluten free; but I blend ingredients such that you still get that same doughy satisfaction we all crave. I’m proud to use organic ingredients, and I bake with love.

How has living in NYC influenced what you do?

Life in NY has turned me into a minimalist, and that’s reflected in my food. It’s simple, pure, and clean eating. My fashion background has a lot to do with the beauty I create in the kitchen. In my vanilla donut, I use a pure ground vanilla bean, so it’s both visually appealing and delicious. It’s a beautiful thing to see my lifestyle align with my food creations. It’s a reflection of what I want my brand to be.

Hippy BB – Bringing you tie dye clothing for the whole family

Visit Hippy BB and owner Alaina Edwards at www.hippybb.com.

Tell me about the name?

BB to me just means baby. I make tie-dye clothes for babies and families.

Is there a story behind your business?

When I was pregnant, we didn’t know if it was a boy or girl, which made gifting us clothes difficult, so I told everyone that tie-dye was baby’s favorite color, since it matches everything. There aren’t a lot of tie-dye clothes for babies, but I’ve been tie-dying since I was young. So I filled in the gap.

What’s your favorite thing about what you do?

This is my stay-at-home-mom business. I have a two-year old son, and I’m new to the area. I think it’s empowering, and I like sharing my art and making something fun for families to enjoy. There’s nothing cuter than a baby or family in tie-dye. I’m all about back to nature, playfulness, families, and having fun.
