This post is brought to you by The Commerce Team. We operate independently of the OnMilwaukee.com editorial department, and if you take advantage of an item or deal we recommend, we get a share of the sale. We read the comments, and we want your feedback.
With the holiday seasons in full swing, OnMilwaukee.com, our ShopLocal marketplace and Local First Milwaukee have teamed to offer many unique, local items and deals. It's easy to access these local deals and over the next several days I'll profile seven of the local items.
Watch our Facebook page for a chance to win many of these local items, and - as I said - read my blog for some cool profiles.
Here's the first from Milwaukee Kayak Company.
Beth Handle – the former marketing manager at Laacke & Joys – opened this awesome canoe and kayak rental business two years ago. Handle opened Milwaukee Kayak with 15 kayaks, two canoes and two stand-up paddleboards. The cost to rent a kayak is $25 for four hours and $35 to rent a canoe. Each additional hour is $10.
Paddlers can explore parts of the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic Rivers for a city-meets-nature excursion. Handle provides a map – laminated and therefore waterproof – which is really helpful.
Of course, it's winter and kayaking isn't happening so MKC wants to prepare you and yours for next season with T-shirts, hats and gift certificates.
Shop local, wear local and kayak local with these great items.Read more...
