Loved Shopping in St. John, Newfoundland! So pleased to find a favorite here! I collect whenever I can, from places traveled to, what is called map jewelry. At Whink, I found a great Sterling Silver pendant necklace in the shape of the map of Labrador and Newfoundland. Love those for all the travelers out there who like to bring back... More

Mostly jewellery in here, some of it made by local artisans. There are some other nifty gift ideas. There are lots of nice shops like this in downtown St. John's but this is a good one, albeit small.

Love all of the amazing jewelry in this gorgeous little shop! Lately they've been carrying all kind of great NL giftware and accessories too. Beautiful cards, and the most stunning scarfs/mitts/hats. A excellent place to do your Christmas shopping!

Every time I visit Whink! I have a dilemma: what to choose?? There are so many delightful, unique pieces that you simply won't find anywhere else in town. Kim chooses items that are bright and fun and really make an outfit, whether for work or play. Staff are very respectful of not hovering and always ready when I want to... More

What an amazing store, full of unique gifts. Many local crafts and art as well. Staff was wonderful and owner was very knowledgeable and helpful. We would have needed an extra suitcase to bring everything back that we loved. Will definitely return!!!

I do not understand the reviews saying staff not helpful, I was in store store mid morning and the staff were happy to help. They gave me space to look around but when I had questions, they were happy to help. Nice store, a little pricy but different items and better quality.

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
