Cactus Collective is a home-grown Vintage//Handmade collaborative retail space, worshipping the many wonders of vintage as well as the insanely talented Philadelphia community of creators. Established in 2014, we are comprised of 7 collecting and creating fiends- we've got two jewelers, the whole lot of us are constantly on the hunt for killer vintage, and the shop carries an array of product from our favorite locals. Music is a heavy influence for all we do and wear and live, so we've also got an ever-growin' record selection.
We often get the question, what's with the name....did we move to Philly from the desert? Why Cactus. It's kind of a groovy multi-faceted answer. Although we carry vintage from all eras, the group is strongly rooted in music culture of the 60's & 70's, as well as the Wild West- the shop's vibe is definitely channeling road trippin' out in the desert, feeling the cosmic energy of the past and of nature that takes you over on those magical drives. To get deeper with it, the cactus represents our purpose pretty perfectly. Cacti need nothin' besides some sunshine and the most minimal natural resources to thrive- they take almost nothing from their places in the world, and only add crazy, mysterious beauty. And that's exactly our goal in our world of vintage preservation and local, lovin' production.
