All of our products are hand made from across Canada, as well as a few select lines from around the world. We have a wide selection of hand made jewelry, Labradorite, bridal jewelry and accessories for your special day, statement pieces, and of course your everyday must haves. A big part of what we carry are things. Things include Newfoundland collectables, hand painted glass, stained glass, fascinators, purses, scarfs and so much more.

“Name Changed but great shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

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 is concentrating on full time painting and jewelry design for the retail and wholesale market. I can't wait to go there and visit the new studio next summer.

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.

“Elizabeth Burry Fine Art & Gift Gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2009

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 prints of Newfoundland scenes. We bought 5 already framed to take home. The best purchase my wife bought on the entire trip were an earring and necklace set that was made right in the gallery by Strung Out Designs, the owners Elizabeth Burry's own creations. My wife has since bought 2 more designs on line. We saw the little jewelry design studio in the back. The owner who works in the gallery full-time said upstairs is where much of their fused glass work is made too and they have a glass artist on staff. A really cool, funky little gem of a store with loads of really unique work by local and Canadian artists in all areas. About half the store is jewelry from both their studio and other artists from around the world. We went back 3 times we liked it so much and found so many nice gifts at very reasonable prices.
I would recommend visiting this little gallery for a great experience.
