#BuyBlack , Buy Bookish

This year has been rough for small businesses. Black-owned businesses have been hit especially hard.

My blog has become well known for my bookish knowledge particularly with bookish merchandise. I’m using this platform for elevate these shops and hope my fellow book lovers find new shops to support.

Shop small! If you’re buying merchandise rather than a subscription box, get your orders in ASAP. Small shops are small so they need as much time as possible to get items out in time for the Holidays.

Here are some Black-Owned companies that make book boxes or bookish items.


  • $: <$20
  • $$: <$40
  • $$$: $40+

Shop Bookish, Shop Small: The Dark Forest Co.

A side effect of my bookstagram hobby is finding amazing small bookish shops! I plan on highlighting some of the wonderful shops I’ve discovered. Get your wallet out!

Kibby (@somethingofthebook) is one of my dear bookstagram friends. She’s recently opened her online store, The Dark Forest Co., dedicated to bookish merchandise featuring fandoms that are underrepresented in the bookish world.

The Dark Forest Company offers the designs on mugs (ceramic or camp/enamel), clothing (variety of shirts or tank tops), and tote bags. To simplify my post, I’ll highlight just one of the items but just be aware that you can get the design on something else.

Want to take a closer look or buy something? Just click the picture!
These are just some designs. Make sure to check the store for everything!

You can use the code PROSECCO or ANIMAGUS to start shoping today!
