This season, I’m making a conscious effort to support small businesses, especially black owned businesses. Supporting black owned businesses means that you are supporting the growth and wealth of an entire community. It enables these businesses to keep a float, particularly during this pandemic, and continue to hire other people of color.
“Buying Black” this holiday season is very simple. Type “black owned” into any search engine or social media search bar, make a purchase and leave a review. Those 3 simple steps can and will make a world of a difference to that small business owner and the effects of your purchase will reach farther than it would for any big box company.
Here are a few of my favorite black owned small businesses to support!
Supermom Culture | Live Pretty on a Penny | Goodee | 54kibo | Poplar Creek Co. | Whitney J. Decor | The Muted Home | Sustainable Home Goods | EcoVibe | BLK + GRN | Karen Jain Home | Peace & Riot | Green House Mercantile | Ruffled Thread | Wrap Life | The Tiny Tassel | Noah & Blue | Puzzle Huddle

I’ve gone ahead and selected my favorite gift pieces from these small shop businesses. You’ll find some of my favorite from the sweatshirt for any DIYers, the “Zoey The Unicorn Can Do It” book I recently purchase for my daughter and home design books that are a must have.
