Well, yeah!, Desperado and its new sister shoe and accessory store, “Shoes &…” just celebrated 20 years of offering fabulous fashion in Oregon, and Liberty Black was there to celebrate with them too! The event took place October 7-9 and was the perfect opportunity to feature Trunk Shows with both Liberty Black and the clothing line “Johnny Was”.

Desperado Boutique started out as a western lifestyle store in the heart of Portland’s historic Pearl District 20 years ago. Now, it has morphed into one of Bend’s best boutique shopping experiences located in the Old Mill District, and because of all that, we just love being part of it!

Our sales rep. Greg Neighbors joined the party that included more than 2 dozen of our boot styles with our most characteristic features such as: uniqueness, artisanal feeling, and lots of carefree attitude.

Owner & proprietor, Joanne Sunnarborg said “Liberty Black allows us to celebrate our western roots with a wide range of high quality footwear at a great price our customers love. Happy to say we sold a lot of boots during our anniversary weekend!”

But of course, it wouldn’t be a Desperado party without lots of food, libations, festivities, and giveaways! That’s why Sunnarborg also said: “Having events like this is just one of the ways we distinguish ourselves as a premier shopping destination. We know there’s a lot of competition out there, so whether you’re visiting our boutiques or shopping with us on-line, we’re going to make sure it’s a great shopping experience. That’s our roots and our future.”
