KitschëCoo has been transformed.
The brick & mortar shop you once knew, located in the Historic Village of Downtown Greendale, WI.
had closed the doors in April of 2021 to begin a new adventure.
Please Read on for our story.
The Kitschë Sisters, (Eleni & Marina) have been vending Art Markets in the Milwaukee & surrounding areas for over 20 years. They got their love of Arts & Crafts from their sweet Grandmother who would always make crafts at her kitchen table with us. Eleni graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design with her BFA in Printmaking & Photography. Marina had been an educator & personal nanny, often teaching art projects for the elementary school children. With a dream, a very small business loan, and the encouragement of their Granny, the two sisters decided to make some life changes and in 2015, quit their day jobs to start a brick & mortar shop. Building the concept with only a handful of our Artist friends, inviting them to sell their goods & teach classes with us in the Gift Shop and Art Studio, we grew quickly.
While we grew, we sought out new vendors to add to the aesthetic & type of gift shop we wanted to provide.
The gift shop was once quirkily curated & featured over 100 Local Artisan's unique and handmade gifts...not anything you'd find in your regular "Big Box" stores.
In 2020 Eleni & her Husband purchased their first home in Sheboygan Co.
A beautiful property with so much potential. So in 2021, after many long months of commutes, Eleni decided to close up shop and focus on beautifying their property & getting their soon-to-be B&B renovated.
The sisters both live in Sheboygan County, but still vend at local Markets, such as the Milwaukee Makers Market at Discovery World in Downtown, Milwaukee. Eleni & Her Husband continue to work on the BnB, a 1985 Motorhome on their beautiful property. And plans to build a studio/Art Barn for Retreat Experiences are in full force too.
