Nearly 24 years ago Desperado began in Portland’s historic Pearl District as a high-end Western Lifestyle store carrying everything from custom boots to handmade rugs. In 2007, owner & proprietor Joanne Sunnarborg moved her business to Bend, Oregon’s Old Mill District which was our home for nearly 13 years.  In the late summer of 2020 we made the move to downtown Bend where we now proudly have our shop on Bond Street in the heart of Bend’s best locally owned shopping district. We hope you’ll love our new location as much as we do.  Downtown Bend offers some of the best boutique shopping, dining and people watching anywhere in the Pacific Northwest.  Come see us at 933 NW Bond Street next to Bend’s oldest Bar & Grill the iconic D&D.

Visit Desperado for a refreshingly unique shopping experience that can always include a complimentary local brew or fine wine.  Don’t miss this eclectic boutique and shoe store where you may come in as a stranger but will always leave as a friend.
