Black Owned Businesses To Support for the 2020 Holiday Season


2020 has been super rough for us all, but we're gonna make this shopping thing super easy! A positive among all the chaos is that there has been a lot of talk and promoting of Black owned businesses. Over here at The Dro Show, we've been practicing group economics and featuring BOBs for years and it's amazing to see that the conversations are becoming more mainstream. It's no secret that due to racism in America, Black businesses and business owners are often systemically discriminated against and left out when it comes to receiving loans and other financial benefits necessary for businesses to be established and flourish. Even amidst the current pandemic, Black business owners haven't been getting a fair shot at receiving federal aid

This is why we are promoting and celebrating Black owned businesses to shop with this holiday season. In general, there's so much creativity when shopping small. We want to encourage you all to make your dollars and purchases count by spreading joy with everyday folks with a vision and a plan. Here are a few amazing small, online shops to patronize not just during this season, but even afterwards:

1. D. Renee Beauty

It's time to get your skin right for the winter, y'all. We might be on lockdown, but that's no excuse to be ashy. D. Renee Beauty is a new skincare line that was birthed this year serving up products like the "Butter Me Down" coffee scrub and even holiday bundles for you, yo' mama, and yo' cousin too.

2. Bluff Creation

This flyness is definitely for the fellas and old school hip hop heads for sure. Graphic designed mugs, tees, sweatshirts, beanies and more with an urban street edge. Our favorite is the "Ol' Dirty Bluff" sweatshirt

3. Kadija's Paint and Sip Session

Just because you can't pop out like you used to doesn't mean you can't have fun at home with the family 'nem! Kadija Paint and Sip Sessions is bringing you a virtual paint class with a festive twist for the holiday season. You can even get paint kits to use at a session or gift one to a friend!

4. Modretro Couture 

Funky, fly, and fierce vintage fashions that you literally can't find anywhere else. Handpicked all the way from the east coast and shipped to you. The quarantine drip is too real over here! Yes you all can absolutely buy me something from the good sis so I can have an in home 80's themed fashion show. 

5. The BOLD Shop
