In 2012, founder Steph Davies started The Waxwing in a small storefront in Shorewood to act as her personal studio and a space to showcase her illustrative work & jewelry designs (which she creates under the name, Dear Darlington) as well as the work of other local makers.

In 2016 the store expanded into it's current home on Milwaukee's East Side at the corner of North Ave & Oakland Ave.  The new space has allowed room to grow from representing around 100 artists to now showcasing the work of over 350 local & national artisans.

 

 

The Waxwing strives to bring in quality handmade work from artists in the community and around the country so that you can treat yourself or find the perfect gift.
