I love to shop this little boutique. I can always find gifts in there and I often want a million things myself. I find it frustrating though that many times, there's plenty of staff but they don't offer their help and if you need help, they seem to be busy doing other things. I understand when it's near Christmas, it's... More

Walked in with a friend and got the usual hello, and it ended there. Three staff on, chatting, and not one person asked if we needed a hand with anything as we looked around the store. We were there for a good 10-15 minutes too and we seemed to disrupt their conversation more than anything.

Sincityshopper, We're so sorry you had less than stellar service in our store. Whink takes great pride in our dedicated, knowledgeable staff. We always want our customers to feel like they can browse for ages without having someone over their shoulder offering to open every case and force a sale. We'll chat with the Whink Girls and make sure they're... More

This store is like a treasure chest. I love going in there. The quality is wicked, prices reasonable, staff is just the most helpful ever. Thanks for a great gift. I'll be back.

Went there with my cousin to check out the rings. They do have a great selection and the jewelry is beautiful but if you want anything you better bring your cheque book. The prices are very high. I'm sure the quality is good and worth the price but its way out of my price range.

Wonderful selection of jewellery and gifts. As a traveler, it is easier to bring back small items and they have lots! Earrings, necklaces, scarves, hats, and other small gifts with a St. John's flair. Great service. Cutest gift boxes ever!

After visiting all the different places for jewelry, souvenirs, trinkets and NL treasures al over St Johns and beyond - we ended up coming back to Whink - great service, selection, quality and prices. Look for the pink storefront on Duckworth St with the tripadvisor logo on the door!

Wonderful little boutique on Duckworth Street in Downtown St. John's. A fabulous selection of art, jewelry and giftware. I found just what I was looking for my wife who absolutely loved the gift. This store is the savior to husbands everywhere.

The name has changed to Whink as the owner has sold but still looks great and lots of fabulous products and gifts. A real little treasure trove. Not as much local art and gift but still very nice & unique things. The previous owner Elizabeth Burry has now opened a working studio in a summer town of Trinity where she... More

Same great finds described in the other review, but now under new ownership and still carrying the jewelry and art made by the previous owner.

If you really want good quality art and gift items as a memory of your trip this is the place to visit. A tiny gallery with lots of fantastic and very unique items that I didn't see in any other stores. We saw a lot of local artists pieces in stained glass, pottery, paintings including the owners own very colorful... More
