Every year, in time for the holiday season, Black thinkers pontificate on the Black dollar, the power therein, and collective economics. Many people start shaming Black folks who buy mainstream brands and don’t invest money in Black owned business, and although we don’t condone shaming of any kind, we definitely encourage you to take a look at the work of some young entrepreneurs who have shaken up the marketplace by starting the “Black Etsy.” The creators of AFRIKREA.COM aimed to help get African fashion designers access to more clientele and for Black consumers to have a go to platform from Black small businesses, so they’re clearly killing the game. With over 300 brands represented and plenty more on the way, this marketplace is the perfect place to find all of your holiday needs and beyond. Visit AFRIKREA.COM today!
