Shop minority-owned this holiday season

By Living Room Realty, November 30, 2019

Skip those enticing big box Black Friday sales and put your money back into the community right here in Portland! Here are some of my favorite minority-owned businesses:


Paloma Medina’s well curated shop offers supplies and tools for building a more productive life – planners, pens, books, plants, and much more. Paloma also teaches in-shop and private workshops on subjects from equity to the psychology of productivity.

Nossa Familia Coffee

Pick up a bag of beans or a gift certificate for a future matcha latte at one of Nossa Familia’s locations around town. Like Living Room, Nossa Familia is a certified B Corp, and works hard to source ethically from family farmers and be transparent through every step of the supply chain.

Orox Leather

Family-owned and operated, Orox Leather has an awesome line of leather goods, all handcrafted in their shop in Old Town Chinatown.

Make & Mary

Working with a third generation Oregon hemp farm, Make & Mary crafts CBD beauty and wellness products. Pick up goodies from their online shop, or at a number of upcoming holiday pop-up markets.
