It’s holiday shopping season! As you prepare to head out and hunt for the perfect gifts for your loved ones, consider supporting one of these local women owned* businesses – favorites of our Women United council members. Learn more about Women United here. Happy shopping!
*One listed business, Build-A-Bow, is not women owned, but founded by a local young entrepreneur with a great mission!

“You’ll fall in love with the unique, showpiece bow ties and keep coming back for the mission and story of Alex Hart-Upendo, the young and talented business founder and CEO who, through his own story,
has been an advocate for youth entrepreneurship and teaching lessons about bullying. I bought a couple of the kids bow-ties for my son, and he loves wearing them so much that they are
in the regular rotation – not just for special occasions!” Aimee Wiedmeyer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company

“With collections from around the globe, CANELA-CANELA ATELIER always has beautiful finds with unique esthetics.” Andrea Schneider, Marquette University

“Heignsight’s fashion and quality make this local woman owned business a must for the holiday season. I love and use my clutch from them regularly!” Andrea Schneider, Marquette University
“I own and have gifted several of these beautiful bracelets. They are all natural gemstones with charms on them, so they are really unique. The bracelets are well-made and feel great on the arm.
They’re not expensive but look stunning -- I get loads of compliments.” Cheryl R Carron, JLL Work Dynamics
Jean’s Clay Studio
“I love Jean’s Clay Studio pottery for the unique designs that celebrate Milwaukee, nature, and fun. I purchased matching dragon fly mugs, one large and one kid’s size. My son and I love to have hot chocolate on a cold night in our matching mugs (*clink*).” Aimee Wiedmeyer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company
“Katrina Kozar (of MasterChef fame) and Kathy Maersch are true queens that make delicious mustard that is a perfect gift for any foodie in your life. My personal favorite is Freya, a mustard with
pickle juice and paprika.” Margaret Kurlinski, Godfrey & Khan
“Nourish makes all-natural products with amazing scents. All the products I have used work! The packaging is nice and simple. The products for the body make great stocking stuffers!”
Cheryl R Carron, JLL Work Dynamics
“Wolf Leathers are handmade and have a signature design style and many colorful options. The buttery leather can’t be beat and the pops of color in the stitching take it to the next level of
unique leather goods. I have one of the totes and it’s my favorite bag to pop the laptop in with confidence. The sturdy handles are going strong after many years.”
