Mark your calendars: On October 17, 2012, four vintage mavens come together in a new Portland, OR, collective.

Located in the Montevilla neighborhood, Maven Collective combines the talents of some of our favorite vintage vendors, ladies who are known for their unwavering eyes and sophisticated styling. Kim Ludy from Ethanollie, Sue Teso from Solstice Home, and Rebekah Dortmund of Little Byrd Vintage have joined forces with original owner Jacklyn Arvin to form a collaborative offering everything from vintage clothing to modish furniture. In addition, these enterprising ladies plan to share their space with some of their favorite artisans, in the form of monthly pop-up shops that coincide with the neighborhood's First Friday Art Walk.

Don't reside in Portlandia? Not to worry. The Mavens will also launch a soon-to-be-live webshop and will continue to maintain their individual Etsy spaces.
