We are thrilled to announce another retailer that will be apart of our Spring Market, Class Act Collective!
Alexis Bennett apart of Class Act Collective is a graduate of the University of Colorado Denver. She received a BA in communication and a minor in legal studies. A string of unfortunate events have steered her life into a whole new direction. Up until 2009, she was a professional athlete, ranking top fifteen in the world of big mountain skiing. She was then hit by a drunk driver and had to have a hip surgery, which took away her career a professional skier.
Shortly after her accident and subsequent surgery, her father was killed in a gold mining explosion. As the fourth generation gold miner from Colorado, her father taught me the importance of hard work and perseverance. He truly loved what he did. If Alexis could speak to him today, she doesn’t think he would have any regrets. He was an inspiration to her and always encouraged her to follow her dreams.
As the fifth generation in Colorado, she has always had a dream to open her own boutique. She decided there was no better time than now! She is now officially the owner of Class Act Collective! It is an intimate boutique that carries a unique variety of apparel and accessories for men and women, new and vintage, from near and far. It’s an urban boutique that is fun, funky, and eclectic and truly has something for everyone. The boutique supports local artists and designers and will continue to support the community. The boutique carries many Colorado based companies including Alexis’ designs.
A part of Alexis’s vision was to create an outdoor community gathering place where she can hold events. It is also a place where friends, family, strangers, and people of all walks of life can come together to shop, socialize, listen to music, support local entrepreneurs, and be merry!
Alexis feels we have lost human-to-human interaction due to the internet and she created a place where all are welcome to enjoy a good conversation, share stories, play dress up and smile.
“Keep Colfax Classy at Class Act Collective!”
