[THE] Black-Owned Bookstores to Support Now

It’s hard to believe that this time last year, we were traveling all around the country on our first book tour. Such fun memories! We loved being able to meet y’all, drink champagne, and talk about everything from organizing to our mutual obsession with Schitt’s Creek.

As many of you know, our new book, The Home Edit Life, is now available for pre-order and releases this September. Needless to say, we won’t be traveling, but we’re planning to host a series of virtual events and are hoping to support as many Black-owned independent booksellers as we can on our virtual tour! We’re still figuring out the details—but we’ll share as soon as we have.
