The Wink! is a unique shared retail space designed for micro and small startups and makers.

We’re redesigning the concept of brick-and-mortar retail at the neighborhood level to create a new culture around shopping with that unique experience. We are located in Dutchtown Main Street on Meramec at Virginia. From fashion and accessories to custom jewelry and gifts, you will sense the passion in the room from 7 entrepreneurs living their dream of having a retail shop at our small business retail collective!

The shops at our shared retail space are unique. The goods are often hand-crafted. The options abound.
