Retired high school counselor Penny Tuzio turned her love of crocheting into a business with Off the Hook, selling handmade blankets out of her home. After restarting her hobby during the pandemic, Tuzio began selling her blankets. While she has no plans to expand her business, revealing that she “just [does] it for pleasure,” Tuzio can often be found at markets around South Florida. Regarding her process, Tuzio explained she “look[s] to see what yarns interest [her]” in the yarn shop to inspire her next work. (Photo/Ella Gohari)

PhotoMichael Oliver of Oli’s Bakeshop started out baking with his mother, constantly “experimenting with everything” he could get his hands on. After “everyone loved” the homemade cheesecakes he made for a friend’s graduation, Oliver realized he could turn the hobby he loved into a career. In the future, Oliver hopes to “get a food truck and… maybe rent a small space so [he] can bake wholesale type things.” If you check out his shop, he recommends you try his homemade spice caramel apple cake, which sold out at the Holiday Bazaar.
