About Custom Portraits
With online shopping being so prevalent, and especially during this pandemic when people need to refrain from going out, it is crucial and vital to support local + small businesses now more than ever. And to do so EARLY as many shops either have limited stock or need time to create your pieces!
My wonderful friend Amber, of Jeweled Skies Yoga, and I have curated this list of local + small businesses for you to shop this holiday season (+ always!).
For each shop, we have highlighted
if the shop is Womxn, Black, LGBTQ, or POC-owned
a description, bio, photo samples, + links
any features that sets them apart
if they are offering anything for Black Friday / Small Business Saturday
Please share this with your friends + family and remember to shop local, shop small this holiday season.
Womxn + Partially Black-owned business • Chicago, IL
We love finding beautiful pieces and helping them for new homes, but also recognize that the business of reselling has its flaws.
We are committed to being as ethical as possible in our thrifting practices, and promise to be transparent about the steps we take to do so.
We are size inclusive! for the clothing items we have for sale, we will list the size the item has on its tag as well as describe the size of the item in additional terms (measurements, fabric elasticity, etc.) because we want to make it easier for people to tell if an item will fit them or not due to the absolutely frankly WACK concept of clothing sizing in this world !
Donates 5% of sales to a different organization every month
New pieces coming Nov. 25th for "Back to Black"
BH Upcycled Designs
Clothing rescued from thrift stores is upcycled into new things that are beautiful, comfortable, and fun to wear.
The shop has donated animal beds to shelters, clothing to organizations, and made financial donations to environmental organizations
