The Bronzeville Collective, located at 339 W. North Ave, in the heart of the Bronzeville arts and culture district, is a collaboration of creative individuals uniting as a collective unit. What initially began in 2016 as a city of Milwaukee sponsored pop-up program, has developed into a home for the area's talent to thrive creatively and financially. This business features four anchor brands; FlyBlooms, Papyrus & Charms, Distinctive Designs by Tomira and BeElegant, and also houses over 25 additional local brands. See TMJ4’s Cassandra McShepard discuss the meaning of the “Bronzeville Babes” in a segment she calls 'Fierce findings' here.
The Bronzeville Collective offers opportunities for others to build and grow their brands by providing a space with affordable monthly vendor fees with low commission rates, and long-term visibility in a retail space.
