800+ Creative Black Women You Can Support on Cyber Monday - Black-Owned Etsy Stores

Um Happy Cyber Monday! In a beautiful display of the diversity and creativity of Black women, Lucette Jefferson compiled a  list of 36 Black-owned Etsy stores.   Even though it originated over at Huffington Puffington, the list was too good to pass up because the list is comprised of some amazingly talented Black women (and men). While Lucette got the list going, the comments section exploded with even more links.

Turns out there is a group called Etsy Artists of Color( EAOC) the also have their own EAOC blog and they have at least 800 Etsy Artists of Color in the group. I'm inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and beauty. 

For those of you gravely disappointed in Lisa Price's Carol's Daughter, a number of the stores contain various hair potions. Let me know if you purchase any. I'm partial to the artwork. My comments are in italics.
