Buy Black, Buy Horror: Alternative Holiday Shopping

Thankfully, there are now so many online stores catering to the horror fan in your life, there's no reason not to tailor their holiday gift and make it extra special. Deep in this pile, there are a few women of color running virtual shops with horror-themed goodies that are honestly, too good to pass on. Below are some of my favorites, old and new. Are you a woman of color who loves horror and sells original work based on it? Let me know and I'll promote the (un)holy holidays out of it!
