The artisan jewelers of Bejeweled Images Fine Jewelry craft gold and silver [pieces](http://www.bejeweledimages.com/jewelry.html adorned with crystalline diamonds and gemstones. The staff work to repair existing jewelry, and forge knotted gold rings and delicately dangling necklaces, each littered with handpicked topaz and garnet that bestow bodies with graceful, elegant lines and the power to control the elements. The shop’s certified goldsmith and silversmith, who boasts more than 22 years of experience, employs wax-molds to handcraft custom rings inlaid with hand picked opal or diamonds. A variety of pottery, photographs, and paintings, and clocks rounds out Bejeweled’s selection.
Authenticity is key at E-Collectique Runway Boutique, where every previously owned dress, necklace, and satin pump is marked with a verified designer or vintage label. Pristine white walls surround high-fashion women’s wares that range from items from current lines to vintage pieces that date back more than a century. Shoppers can peruse clothing and accessories from couture designers such as Balenciaga, Chanel, and Gucci, as well as ready-to-wear styles from makers such as American Apparel and Ralph Lauren.
Owner Anna Zuckerman's late husband opened Sydney b. A Children's Boutique to make a mark on the world with "Sydney", their daughter's name, on it. Today, Anna and her staff keep the boutique stocked with hard-to-find, high-quality children's clothes from brands such as Zutano and Deux par Deux. They travel to New York, Atlanta, Chicago, and elsewhere to keep the shop filled with dresses, tutus, and charm bracelets, and there are plenty of toys, outfits for boys, and baby gifts as well. The team has a rule of thumb that customers shouldn't be able to find anything in the shop at a big-box store—they exclusively seek out unique finds that are well worth the expense.
As customers admire rows of Primigi shoes or Hello Kitty–themed goodies, tykes can watch kid-friendly shows or assemble puzzles. The staff also offers ear piercing to help little ladies pair their couture finds with a pair of pearls or their grandmother's heirloom gauges.

The varied stock at Urban Laundry, named one of Milwaukee’s Best Women’s Boutiques by CityVoter, bedecks women in contemporary duds from renowned designers. The boutique sets up shop in a restored 19th-century building with exposed Cream City brick and wood-beamed ceilings, from which vintage chandeliers and artwork beam down on a collection of Lola and Sophie blouses and dresses, Free People graphic tops, and denim from 7 For All Mankind. A variety of jewelry and belts accents ensembles, and a selection of vegan handbags basks in cruelty-free materials, daydreaming of bottle feeding baby giraffes.
