Modern Day Mercantile for Women
Located right on Century Drive on Bend’s west side, Brave Collective is a modern day mercantile for women. It’s a space that is as welcoming and accessible as the fashion it offers. The name is to honor and remind every woman that they belong, they have a voice and they matter. In the words of Cascade Journal, “Jennifer Riker had a vision to create an inviting retail space that honored women, no matter their age, size or style.”
New shipments arrive weekly representing forward fashion. Local artisans are showcased offering furniture, jewelry and uniquely crafted gift items. Carrying everything from “relaxed, everyday T-shirts to specialty silk scarves and chic cocktail wear,” Brave Collective strives to make their products and price points attainable by women of any age, budget or shape. To keep things fresh and fashionable, much of merchandise changes weekly. They really mean they want to make everyone feel welcome; customers can make themselves comfy on the lounge seating, enjoy a complimentary beverage for mamas, there’s a small play area for children. It’s even dog friendly!
