Queens honoring queens! For New York-based filmmaker and content creator, Renae Bluitt, that has always been the mission.

For more than a decade she has been blogging about black-owned women businesses across the nation through her platform inhershoesblog.com, in hopes of giving them more visibility.

Each year around the holidays she drops a Holiday Gift Guide featuring 75 Black women-owned brands to buy, love, and support all year round. This year’s guide will be available on November 20.

As a way to bring the brands together in one space, she created her annual In Her Shoes Holiday Bazaar . This year marks the third installment of the event and it is sure to be a hit.

“This is much more than a shopping moment, it’s a relationship-building opportunity with a community of women who are committed to fixing each other’s crowns and lifting as we climb,” Renae Bluitt told Travel Noire.

The event will be held on December 8 at Brooklyn’s 26 Bridge from 12p-6pm. The cost is $20 per person.

Guests will be able to sip on wines from The McBride Sisters while supporting brands like Avid Swim, Boss Blend Coffee, Mess in a Bottle, and She Got The Juice. There will be over 30 vendors in attendance with the list still growing by the day.

“I’ve witnessed so many beautiful collaborations as a result of this event, and am so proud to see it flourish year after year.”

In addition to the holiday event, Bluitt created and executive produced She Did That.” It’s the only documentary that explores entrepreneurship through the Black woman’s lens. The film features Lisa Price of Carol’s Daughter; NYT best-selling author, Luvvie Ajayi Jones; Tonya Rapley of My Fab Finance;  Melissa Butler of The Lip Bar; and many other dynamic women committed to building their own brands and legacies. 

The documentary can be viewed on iTunes, Amazon Video, Comcast, Spectrum, Xfinity, DIRECTV, target.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
