Fly Brave received their 1st Commercial Customer.
Thanks to the kindness of Bonneville Media, Fly Brave is now the official shirt shop for KNCI 105.1 Country Radio, Country in the Park concerts.
Our clients design, create and sell their merchandise through our employment training pop-up shop at concert events.
We receive a portion of each shirt sold which affords us to continue offering free social, fitness and employment training programs to our community.
FLY BRAVE HAS ITS FIRST HOME!!
After spending the last five years at the community center, we secured our very first brick and mortar location at 5901 Broadway in Sacramento and have moved in.
We hope to open by mid-late May 2021.
We are taking over the thrift store and attached coffee at 59th and Broadway next to Bacon and Butter in Tahoe Park.
We have reached capacity with donations and are not able to accept any more at this time.
Going forward, we are unable to accept large items such as couches, beds, hutches, entertainment centers, televisions, desks or like items. We will post donation drive dates with acceptable items once we have moved in and set up the new space.
The thrift store will be revitalized into the Fly Brave Emporium - new and used finds.
New includes space for local artists to sell their works such as soaps, candles, accessories, clothing, art, ect.
Used will include gently worn clothing, shoes, accessories, home goods, vintage finds and small pieces of furniture.
There will also be a clothing/art consignment component.
The coffee shop will reopen with an anime theme. Stay tuned for those cool details.
Both businesses will be run by our clients to serve as hands on skills/employment training programs.
We will offer daily courses on office/technology and art/design along with hosting our social and life skills workshops afterhours.
We are so excited to bring our mission to fruition.
The building needs a lot of love and we plan to host two community service project days to fix it up. We will post a google sign up sheet when we secure the dates.

Thank you for flying brave with us.
