I go here because there's great unique gift options. Fun mugs, cards, books, jewelry, art, etc. My only complaint is that they're isn't more stuff to choose from from each type of product. They also do free gift wrapping.

I love this little store, and regularly stop at it when I'm struggling for unique gifts. It's a small store a bit off the beaten path of downtown Milwaukee, but I always leave with something. They have a unique collection of toys and gifts from...More

This quaint, fascinating little (and I mean little) store is in an odd urban-pioneer type of neighborhood. Little in size, huge in variety, it's an old-time general store with modern flair. You'll find things you've forgotten from your childhood as well as new gizmos you...More

Simple, non-commercial children's toys, books, and cards along side fabric, yarn and sewing notions. A good place for a Milwaukee gift. Don't be put off by this small store's location - it's worth the detour.

Fishbergers actually may be a pleasant, recurring dream. I dream that a lovely, family-owned variety store opened on a gritty street in my neighborhood-and made it past the first year! Fishbergers is not only a throwback to the old days of the "five & dime"...More

This is our go-to store for that little special gift to make someone smile, relax and enjoy themselves. It is true that the items themselves are simply what they are, many we have or have seen before. But the secret is in the selection and...More

Fischberger's is a nice little store, but nothing to go out of the way for. I guess I expected more from the store after seeing some post and its ranking on trip advisor.

The location is a bit odd and I wouldn't have found it were it not for the roller derby tickets I had to pick up there. When I walked in, I was surprised to find such a fun variety of things. This is a great...More

Heard of this place through an obscure ad in a theater's program. Very small store but packed full of things we all love and have forgotten about! Tin robots and wind up toys and tonettes and mouth harps... Just a CRAZY variety of oddball things....More
