Black Businesses That Sell Creative Pieces! (Importance For Support And Links)

Now, more than ever, we need to support and stand WITH our black brothers and sisters.

Since I have a lifestyle/fashion blog, I thought I would share some businesses that got my attention and want to support! When I went to Africa last year, I discovered that my African brothers and sisters are VERY CREATIVE and make the most unique pieces! While I was there, I got some woven pot holders and coasters that I use under my plants and love! They are so aesthetic! My head wrap and dress also supported a young girl going off to college in Jos, Nigeria! She did such an amazing job and we all became friends! I was going to go back again this year, but COVID wouldn’t allow us to travel.

WHY SUPPORTING BLACK SMALL BUSINESSES IS IMPORTANT

When we buy from our black small businesses, it helps create more jobs, builds up the communities, which then helps school districts, parks, community centers, and the whole area prosper, helps the economy, assists families, pours into someone’s dreams, provides an avanue for creativity to flourish, diminishes crime because of more possibilities for positive opportunities to get involved in, and keeps more small owned businesses open.
