Hi everyone! It's been three and a half years since you helped us open The Waxwing & what an amazing three years it's been! In that time we've more than doubled the amount of artists we represent (both local AND national!) And my own family grew by one as we welcomed our daughter into the world 2 years ago! It's been busy and business has been wonderful but we're back at Kickstarter once again because in December of last year we found out that our lease would not be renewed as our landlord's own business adjacent to ours needed to expand into our space.
It's been a tough year as we've figured out what's next but we're so excited to have recently found a new space:
It's a great space and nearly four times bigger than our current location. It's located in an awesome spot on Milwaukee's East Side that isn't terribly far from our current home and we're excited that we'll soon have room to host classes & workshops as well as a stage to feature local music...but there's a catch:
It's a completely new construction with no floor, no walls & no electric. And it's up to us to make all of that happen so we need your help! Head on over to our new campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/521738487/the-waxwing-spreads-its-wings-and-expands where we've tried to create an online shopping experience for you. You'll find original artwork, limited edition prints, one of a kind jewelry, Waxwing t-shirts and other amazing merchandise! Can't choose just one reward? There's great package rewards AND if you send us a message requesting a group of items together, we'll create a custom reward option just for you! You can also simply pledge the total amount on one reward and let us know what you want to add to it!
Thanks for helping us get started and for any assistance in getting us to the next chapter of our journey! Can't pledge at this time? No worries! Please consider sharing this link with your friends on social media and helping us spread the word!
Thank you & all the best to you!
Love, Steph Davies (shop owner) & the rest of The Waxwing family!
