Bare Necessities Handmade Apparel began in a basement in 2012 and now resides in a storefront in Cochrane Alberta. You’ll find Michelle (owner and seamstress) working away in store on new items. Often when you come shop you’ll meet any number of her 4 children playing in the store, there’s rarely a day where at least one of them isn’t around.
We are a very child friendly location and love to watch kids fall in love with our selection of clothing. Please don’t hesitate to bring them with you on your next visit - we have a special section set up for them to play while you shop.
We are located at #208, 118 1st Avenue West in Cochrane Alberta.
**Currently our store is closed to walk in customers due to COVID 19. We are still taking online orders for shipping or curbside pickup.**
