hile many Bendites may have written the former name on the ballot, Cosa Cura, formerly Rescue Collective, rises highest in the sky when it comes to Bend consignment shops. As Rescue Collective, the business focused on offering consignment clothing and providing a place for local artists and fashionistas to sell their goods. In 2016, Cosa Cura expanded its business model to include locally made home good and decor.
Appropriately named, Cosa Cura loosely translates in Italian to "Things Curated or Hand Picked." Owner Angela Dietrich has taken that meaning to heart, curating a wide selection of desirable, locally made products and consignment pieces. Upon entering Cosa Cura, you'll easily be able to find the piece that will make your date this weekend see stars — you look that good.
On the consignment end of things, Cosa Cura selects goods based on the season. In the late summer they'll start accepting items for the fall — boots, sweaters and other warm clothing items. Bring in your lightly used clothes and earn a percentage of the final sale price. Clothes start at one price and if they haven't sold by a certain date, move to the next price point. Have a pair of stunning Frye boots that you don't want to part with for less than a set amount? Cosa Cura also does some fixed-price consignment.
Whether looking for the perfect prom dress, rad jeans that make your booty look bangin' or a one-of-a-kind piece of locally made jewelry for your best friend's birthday, Bendites know to find the treasure they seek — Cosa Cura.
