Holiday shopping doesn’t have to fill you with existential dread. As many of us try to reorient our relationship to capitalism, shopping at vintage or secondhand stores is a win-win-win: It’s better for the environment, an easy way to support small businesses, and a chance to get your loved ones truly meaningful and unique gifts.

Instead of resorting to generic presents from Amazon, do your holiday shopping at these BIPOC-owned vintage and secondhand stores. Most of these are local businesses, but many sell online (or via Instagram) and ship nationwide.
