Wink: Great Swimwear, Clothing & Sales
By Laurel Ciohon
I was excited to find Wink Swimwear to be open on a Friday early this fall. With many businesses in the seasonal northern Door County closing during the week, I was happy to get a chance to stop in and browse Wink’s great selection of clothing.
The owner, Deb MacDonald, was working that afternoon and happily informed me that everything in the store was 40% off. EVERYTHING! Well, that was music to my ears. My usual shopping blog stops are just to LOOK, not to TOUCH. But when someone tells me everything in their adorable, trendy, cute shop is on sale, the rules can waiver a bit.
I quickly found several clothing items to try on, including dresses, skirts, and tops. After trying it all on, knowing I couldn’t buy everything, I settled on a gorgeous ivory halter maxi dress with a beautiful coral pattern, as well as a cute, geometric print mini skirt that I justified by exclaiming I could wear it with tights, boots, and a sweater this fall.
Deb was extremely friendly and even helped me twist the halter straps of the maxi dress to make it look even cuter. While checking out, I examined several beautiful jewelry pieces at the counter. It took a lot of persuasion in my mind not to splurge any more, so I told myself I could stop back a different weekend this fall to buy more if I wanted.
Wink Swimwear carries men’s and women’s name-brand swimwear for all sizes, shoes, jewelry, sunglasses, dresses, skirts, tops, pants, shorts, and jackets. The cute, quaint shop that’s been in the Fish Creek Alley Shops for over 20 years is located at 4160 Main Street, right behind Bayside Tavern. They are open Friday-Sunday, 11-5 through the fall. 920.868.3201
