June Edition: 10 Latinx-Owned Businesses to Support Whether You Shop Small On Saturday or Everyday
Here is our (rather late) compilation of Latinx-owned businesses for the month of June.
Once upon a time in the city of Compton, Ca., a young woman with a unique style, and obsession with the show Once Upon A Time, decided to play around with polymer clay. She created the story book from Once Upon A Time into a charm, and was amazed to see the positive reactions of friends and family. Before she knew it she was creating many more charms and enjoyed putting a smile on those who received one. Today, she has blended her Mexican culture, and love for food, to create deliciously unique charms. And it all began Once Upon a Charm...

"My name is Yomahra and I am the owner of Small Batch Supply Co. I am also the maker of all of the goods you will find here. I am in love with process, the multiple steps that it takes to create a beautiful, finished product. This is why my I am involved every step of the way. From dyeing, cutting, assembling, setting copper rivets to most importantly stitching, every aspect is done by hand...my hand.
I thoughtfully design each piece so that you get an item that will enhance and compliment your lifestyle and hopefully inspire you.
The materials I use are very important to me. Only Hermann Oak leathers are used because they are tanned in the U.S.A. and are some of the highest quality you can find. All of the hardware, threads, dyes and tools I use are sourced from American companies.
Collectively this means that when you buy a Small Batch Supply Co. product, you’re getting something that’s made by the owner, you’re keeping a dying art alive, and you’re supporting a small business."

9.) Reina Rebelde
The exquisite and ambitious woman who embodies her powerful cultural duality by showing her gran belleza to the world. She is blessed with many choices: she speaks English y algunas veces español. She loves being Latina and Americana. She equally celebrates the beauty of her Reina and fierceness and grit of her Rebelde. She embraces her duality and has always understood the fuerza that the perfect shade of lipstick provides to her already-dynamic life and how it powerfully transforms her mysterious beauty.
Reina Rebelde was born out of something I share with you — a passion for makeup and extreme pride for my cultural identity as a Latina. Growing up in Mexico, my makeup obsession started with the telenovela “Rosa Salvaje” and sitting at my mother’s feet watching her beauty rituals as she would get ready to go out for the night with her girlfriends. I’ve been addicted to makeup ever since. Years of makeup hoarding later, my collection is equal parts wild and unpredictable, bold and impractical, feminine and luxurious, sexy and severe — in many ways perfectly reflective of my complicated identity as a Mexican woman embracing an amazing American existence.
Inspired by our collective experience as Reinas Rebeldes, I created this collection of products with built-in versatility to give life to our many dualities, full of provocative shades that deliver the boldness and passion that we bring to the rituals of applying them, and that will take us from glamorous to fierce, aspirational to trailblazing, messy to polished, and allow us to unapologetically and authentically share our Reina Rebelde essence with the world.
