Shopping for a new mirror or looking for a unique gift? That's always a good chance to support Black creatives with small businesses. And there's one place we often go to in search of unique finds: Etsy, the online marketplace where you can find goods that make friends go "wait, where did you get that?"

If you don't quite know where to start, Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy Trend Expert, tells Hunker that you can "keep an eye on Etsy's Black-owned shops Editors' Picks page to discover more one-of-a-kind finds created by Black sellers in our community."

Even if you aren't quite ready to shop, there are other ways to show your appreciation.

"Shoppers can support specific sellers by sharing their favorite shops on social media or "favoriting' them on their Etsy accounts, which makes it easy to locate the shops whenever they are ready to make a purchase and signs them up for on-sale notifications," Isom Johnson says.

Here are just a few Black-owned Etsy shops to support all year long.

1. Bespoke Binny

Self-described as an "eclectic homeware brand rooted in African expression," Bespoke Binny is all about bringing more joy into interior design and decor. The shop carries lamp shades, aprons, oven mitts, napkins, and more — all in bright prints inspired by Ghanian aesthetics.
