We’re all familiar with Etsy. It’s a great place to discover small businesses and artists. But there’s a lot of information out there, and sometimes finding new places to shop is overwhelming.

That’s why we’re here. We rounded up Etsy shops that are not only Black-owned, but are also run by women entrepreneurs. So get ready to put your purchasing power to good use.

A Zodiac print if you wake up every morning and read your horoscope…

At this point your sign feels like a badge of honor. And when Mars is in retrograde, you know it’s gonna be a bumpy ride. Oh you met someone? Gotta check their Zodiac first and see if it’s a match. You get the point. Psst...for more prints from this artist, click here.($20+, The Paira Birds on Etsy)

A mudcloth pillow to add to the 12 you already keep on your bed…

One can never have enough. And now’s the perfect time to accessorize your home with pillows since you spend all your time there. P.S. the inserts aren’t included so pick up a few here. ($90, xN Studio on Etsy)

Buy it

A custom return address label for all those letters you’ve been writing…

Actually though. With quarantine came the return of letter writing. And now these shiny labels will make you seem way more legit. You can choose from eight colors, and each sheet has 30 labels. They’ll take about two weeks to process and create. ($14, Patrina’s Paperie on Etsy)

A grocery pad so you can stop buying milk when there’s a container in the fridge…

Guilty of buying too much each time you go? Well, us too. Now you can make a proper list. 2021 is the year of no waste. ($9, Godly Gorgeous on Etsy)

Buy it

A chic bandana to spice up your Zoom calls…

Party up top, sweats on the bottom. It’s the perfect accessory that’ll make your friend or coworker say, ‘Wow, you look so put together!’ Got ‘em. ($24, All Very Goods on Etsy)

Buy it

A sticker pack for anyone who loves to decorate their water bottle or laptop cover…

Yes, hello, we keep buying stickers because we love them. Maybe you can relate. This pack (shop them individually here) is all about positivity and beauty in the little things. So stick them to your 2021 planner to keep you motivated. Tuning into good vibes. ($9.50, By Chenelle on Etsy)

Buy it

A set of hammered, stackable rings to add to your jewelry collection…

Wear them separately or together. Either way, they’re perfect for casual, everyday wear. And will remind you of the days when you used to get fully dressed for work. Sigh, seems like forever ago. ($47, The Pink Locket on Etsy)

Buy it

A set of heart-shaped hoops just in time for Valentine’s Day…

Consider them a small way to celebrate the day of love. They’re made from sterling silver and are delicate, so place them somewhere safe when you take them off for bed. ($17.10+, Anne Swain Jewelry on Etsy)

Buy it

A cotton face mask that's cute…

This one has two woven layers, but isn’t medical grade. It does have a pocket for a filter and elastic ear bands, but they’re not adjustable. Psst...always wash after wear. ($14, Suakoko Betty on Etsy)

Buy it

A bath bomb to help you unwind at the end of the day…

Never underestimate the healing powers of a really good bubble bath. Choose from lavender, rose, coffee, grapefruit, eucalyptus spearmint, and oatmeal. We recommend lighting a few candles and hanging a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the bathroom door. Alone time has commenced. ($3.25, Charmed Bath Body on Etsy)

Buy it

A French vanilla body wash made from shea butter and raw honey…

Yes, it will make your time in the shower smell sweet. But it will also hydrate your skin, helping smooth texture and soothe winter dryness. ($16, Journee Naturelle on Etsy)

Buy it

A towel wrap for your hair that can help with split ends and frizz…

This cotton towel is gentle, and can hold hair away from your face without the use of hair ties (which can cause breakage). Just secure the front elastic around the button at the nape of your neck. The towel will stay in place and absorb water quickly so your hair can dry. Plus your hands will be free to apply lotion and go about your business. ($24.50+, Breezy Tee on Etsy)

Buy it

A ‘progress’ print to add to your blooming gallery wall…

Well, maybe all your art is still sitting against the wall waiting to be hung. But either way, this symbolic print is a powerful addition to your home. For more prints from this artist, click here. ($30+, MKoby Art on Etsy)

Buy it

A ‘goal getter’ notebook to set you up for success in 2021…

Use it for your needs. Whether as a journal, habit tracker, or to-do pad. Whatever it may be, this journal is the perfect option to help you stay organized and on track to reach your goals. Go get ‘em. ($16, Copper and Brass Paper on Etsy)

Buy it

A mother and daughter bracelet set for the mini-me in your life…

Think of it as a sweet and sentimental gift for Valentine’s Day. Or even an early Mother’s Day gift. P.S. this is a family-run business that was inspired by the owners’ 8-year-old daughter. We love. ($15, Sun Stori on Etsy)
