22 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 where she now offers 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.
