Black Owned Small Businesses (Part 2)

5 more incredible small shops that are perfect for your next theme park visit and beyond!

As February comes to a close, we wanted to bring you 5 more Black Owned Businesses to carry you into the rest of the year. Some of the shops on the list we’ve been recommending since we started this business, and some are new to us that we can’t wait to purchase from!

Main Street Press is a company that we’ve followed and recommended since we started our business. It’s easy to see why we love this shop. Britt and Leo are a husband and wife team and local Floridans. Their beautiful and original designs are absolutely perfect for a day at Animal Kingdom or snacking around the World Showcase. But we are truly obsessed with their PARC bag. The PARC bag is the perfect way to store your ears, pins, and any park accessories safely while you travel or hop from park to park!

You can find all of Britt and Leo’s creations here, and follow their Instagram account here: @mainstreetpress

Teia sincerely has a passion for Disney. We thankfully stumbled upon her account a couple of years ago by seeing one of her gorgeous flat-lay photos. She truly has a gift for both content and outfit ideas! So much so that Disney took notice, and Teia is an alumni of the Disney Creator Lab. Now, Teia and her husband, Earnest, have created a tool to help others reach their goals through social media planning. They have launched Learn to Grow, “a social media planner made for creators, by creators”. If social media isn’t your thing, they also have an undated physical planner inspired by our favorite Miss Mouse!

You can check out Teia and Earnest’s bundles, planners, and journals right here, and follow their business and personal Instagram accounts here: @learntogrowplanner @locdndis @_earnest_little

Any shop that carries Clarabelle-inspired merchandise also carries our hearts. Eric and Ella have the cutest theme park merchandise. Their t-shirts are heavy in nostalgia, originality, and versatility. Not only do they carry shirts for the Disney parks and movie fans, but they also have shirts for fellow Universal Studios fans! We absolutely love their nods to classic Universal rides, as well as new designs for those who are ready to fight alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy. We are sure you’ll quickly fall in love with this shop!

If you love theme parks, but also like to keep things clean and simple, Minimally Magical is the perfect shop for you. Shelby’s designs are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also versatile. She has plenty of options that work beautifully in both Disney and Universal theme parks, such as her Don’t Text, Park Vibes ONLY, Rope Drop to Park Hop, and Magic shirts. We also love that Shelby carries items such as totes and keychains, so you can take a little magic with you wherever you go!

Britney Sadè made history in 2022 when her company, CurlCap became the first Black-owned business to sell original licensed Disney merchandise. If you are someone with naturally curly hair who loves hats, but struggles to find ones that will work with your hair type, look no further. These innovative hair accessories are designed to give you the coverage you need in the front from the Florida heat, while allowing your natural curls to shine in the back. They are also satin lined, so they will protect the hair that is covered from damage and tangles. CurlCap offers a variety of designs that range from Marvel and Rugrats to Disney!

You can check out her Amazon shop here, and follow Britney and her business Instagram accounts here: @curlcap @britney_sade

We hope you have found 10 new shops to love on all year. These shops are not only fabulous for your upcoming trips, but now you also have new options when buying gifts for the theme park fan in your life.

As we said in part one, please remember to read all of the site’s shipping and return policies listed. Please support these shops YEAR-ROUND, not just during the shortest month of the year. If you aren’t able to support them financially, give their shops a follow on social media. Any interaction, follow and share means the world to small shops!

Happy shopping!
