Buying your clothes through Depop is a great way to support small businesses, as well as individuals who use the site as a way to make extra money. In light of social movements, such as Black Lives Matter, that sparked change in 2020, I personally wanted to find ways that I could support POC-owned businesses. Depop is an app that I’ve always loved using and always find the coolest pieces from, so I began to research black-owned shops that I could support. This article includes some of my favorite black female owned Depop shops that you can support as well.
