AMERICAN MADE + HANDCRAFTED
Milwaukee, WI - Historic Third Ward
Milwaukee, we love this city.
We enjoy its diverse neighborhoods, shops, restaurants, bars, breweries, festivals and live music.
It has always been important to us to support small businesses. One of our favorite ways to do this is to shop all of the local vendor fairs. The things we purchase hold special meaning because they are made with care by real people within our own community. Our passion for authentic American craftsmanship fuels our store, LOCALmke.
What began as Dan's dream to open an acoustic guitar boutique has grown into an adventurously curated shop that showcases American makers working in all mediums. Our inventory changes frequently as our artists work in small batches and are continuously churning up new creations. We are endlessly impressed by the talent of the folks in this community.
We know where our products come from and who makes them. These artists become our friends and sometimes even feel like family. Frankly, we do a little happy dance every time we make a sale because we know it directly supports the livelihood of our makers. All of our goods are created in America, by real people, with real lives and unique stories of how they are pursuing their dreams. You'll recognize the personal touch present in each piece featured in our shop. Thank you for supporting the Maker Movement with us.
