About Us

Hello Beautiful Friend

I need to tell you something - I'm happy and grateful.


I love having this amazing space and being able to talk to the most beautiful people, inside and out.

And on top of that, we are located in a pretty amazing community.  It's the people, and the vibe.  It's the volunteerism and that we are all here for each other.

We are fortunate to have a National Historic Main Street, which means gorgeous architecture.  We were designed to be a walkable community which means we are comfortable being here.  Wide sidewalks, outdoor dining, live music, and beautiful shops are what makes Hamburg a pretty great place to be!

Our Purpose

What a Woman Wants is really about what we ALL want - joy, serenity, happiness, laughter.  We want health for ourselves and our loved ones.  We want to take a breath and be mindful of the good things.  We at WaWW want all of that for you, too, and we will do our best to give you the experience you need.  You can count on us.

We Welcome You with helpful staff, great service and selection

Since doubling our size in 2018, we have the most extensive and varied selection of jewelry, fashionable clothing, decadent handbags and unique gifts around.  Our staff is knowledgeable and fabulous.

We can't wait to see you!

Warmest regards,
