Laacke and Joy’s is one of Milwaukee’s oldest retailers.

They are an outdoor outfitter that carries some of the best in ski, snowboard, camping, and kayak equipment.

The Milwaukee location is great. The four story building has two floors of gear and clothing. The location on Water Street makes it an easy stop from anywhere downtown. There is free parking right in front of the building. It makes it an easy stop even if you just have a few minutes.

Why do I like Esther’s European Imports?

My wife and the Swiss Cow outside Esther’s European Imports

Because all my life I wanted a Victorinox Swiss Champ Swiss Army Knife and they have a large selection of them. The also have the little parts like the toothpicks and tweezers to replace the ones in your knife that get lost. I can’t think of a better, more Swiss place to buy a Swiss Army knife.
