Black Owned Businesses | A Collection

July 6, 2020

It’s so nice to see that black business are F I N A L L Y getting the recognition and spotlight that they have deserved since day one. A lot of my fellow blogger friends have shared their “Black Owned Business” roundups, and I’ve decided to join in on the fun. It’s been quite the whirlwind of emotions + feelings towards everything that is happening in the world so please excuse me if you feel as tho this post is too late. I’ve done my best to break them up into categories and I will, of course, continue you to add as I discover more of them and try them out for myself 🙂

Happy Browsing! x



I discovered Fanmmon through a post similar to this a few weeks ago. She designed the most beautiful dresses + she makes each dress custom to your size. NO MORE DRESS ALTERATIONS for this girl =. It brought me so much joy knowing that she does that. No body is shaped exactly the same, and it was nice to know that she caters to everyone by providing this option.

I discovered Clare during the initial stages of the stay at home orders. At the time, I had no idea that the brand was black-owned. Clare Paint takes the hassle out of going to a store to shop for paint + supplies. With swatches twice the size of your hand, you’ll no longer need to buy sample cans!
