Dash and Verve Design — which specializes in home decor, event rentals and custom orders — uses hand lettering and wood burning to add personal touches to ornaments, coasters, signs and more.

Megan Factor, who established Dash and Verve Design in 2018, said she initially made custom artwork for friends and family before selling her pieces on social media. Now, she’s a seasoned vendor at The Youngstown Flea and other local holiday flea markets.

Factor grew up in Canfield and has an undergraduate degree from Youngstown State University in advertising and public relations. She graduated from YSU in May with a master’s degree in business administration.
