14 Vendors Selling at The Common Collective After Hours Event

The Common Collective normally operates as a lively business on 13th Ave, but for one night only, it will stay open until 10:30 p.m. for its “After Dark” event on June 18, starting at 7 p.m. The Collective, composed of 14 vendors with all levels of clothing expertise and specialties of items, supports its dedication to being gender-neutral and equal to all. Therefore, all inventory is intermingled together throughout the store, regardless of the vendor who sells it.

All items in the store, as well as other items from their winter inventory, will go on sale for between 20% to 30% off. There will also be $5 and $10 bins for shoppers to dig through.

“We are a community so we don’t want to showcase one business [over another] because you support one, you support all,” TCC owner and 303 Magazine contributor Tristan Bego said. “As you shop you can see our tags, every tag is different, so it’s not shopping based on the vendor, it’s shopping based on the item that you’re looking for.

Here are some of the vendors to look out for as you browse through the clothing racks. 

February Jones

The Lowdown: February Jones is the creation of the owner herself, Tristan Bego. Her style is mostly Y2K and 90s driven, with some modern pieces thrown in from time to time. Her business model is centered around being a Black-owned, sustainable and affordable vintage resale brand.
