During the Small Business Saturday Redo event, I wanted to visit a local shop that I’ve never been to. I came across Lavender Winks. It’s a boutique located at 2110 N. Maize that carries a wide variety of gift items perfect for you or your loved ones.
It was the type of store that had a little bit of everything. From shirts to mugs to food to quirky items, Lavender Winks was a fun trip for my daughter and I to browse through everything they had.
She’s getting into jewelry, fun-smelling items like candles and lotions, so it was like a child walking into a candy store during our visit. Just this time, it was more a boutique shop than a candy store.
Lavender Winks also offers custom laser engraving, hand-painted signs and personalized t-shirts, and more. So, for example, if you have a friend married to someone named Richard or maybe Ricky or perhaps even Dick, then a “Don’t be Richard” shirt would be the perfect gift.
Literally something could be found for anybody you know at Lavender Winks.
After all the browsing, my daughter landed on this particular section.
That’s where she came across the newest member of our family. Meet Chi-Chi the Lion.
In hindsight, I should have purchased the bag in the background of the below picture that said, “Bag of All My Kid’s Crap” to put her endless amount of stuffies in .
Lavender Winks is located at 2110 N Maize Rd. Store hours are Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The store is closed on Sunday and Monday. You can also visit them on the web, Facebook or call 316-477-1771.
