URSA is the realization of a longtime love and appreciation for all things thoughtfully designed and crafted. The shop will feature a carefully curated selection of home decor, jewelry, apothecary, plants, and more. URSA is independently owned and operated by Emily Kopplin and her husband, John Sturdy. John is a photographer (portfolio) and Emily is a buyer, visual merchandiser, and maker of the house jewelry and apothecary line. We’re looking to bring a sophisticated, eclectic, and fresh shopping experience to Milwaukee, WI; a vibrant city on Lake Michigan which has experienced some major growth in the past few years. We want the customer to feel at home inside URSA while finding unique and inspiring items to transform their own space. Located in the beautiful and bustling neighborhood of Bay View, at 2534 S Kinnickinnic Avenue, the shop shines in a newly renovated building featuring loft style apartments, a yoga studio, and hair salon. Our neighbors include various restaurants, bars, coffee shops, the historic Avalon movie theater, and a variety of other locally owned boutiques. In addition to the brick and mortar shop, we will be re-launching the website with the full range of products carried in store, allowing people from all over the globe to participate in the URSA shopping experience.
Because opening this shop is a new adventure for us, we’re reaching out to ask if you’d be interested in letting us showcase your products on consignment. We’re confident that once the shop opens it will quickly become a neighborhood staple and shopping destination.
Below you'll find a link to the consignment terms for your consideration. We’d love to have you as a part of the URSA team, especially in these exciting beginning stages.
