In the News – Milwaukee Magazine!

Our community is so generous with their kindness – even when we’re not in COVID-19 quarantine! Thanks to Milwaukee Magazine for featuring us as one of the stores available to help you get through social distancing!

We have the best customers! We’ve been so moved by the personal connection we’ve had walking through birthday ideas or craft ideas with you all. We love providing you with poster boards for signs for your neighbors or friends… with puzzles for you to work on with your family… with scissors, glue and the best markers to keep creating.

Here’s what Milwaukee Magazine said about us:

Winkie’s Toys and Variety

Anyone who grew up in Whitefish Bay—or has spent any time there—knows about Winkie’s Toys and Variety at the corner of East Silver Spring Drive and North Marlborough Drive, probably because they received a birthday or holiday gift from the five-and-dime-type variety store (it’s been in business since 1964). In addition to selling toys and gifts, the store also retails crafts, balloons, art and office supplies, baking goods, candy, toys and gifts, basically a lot of stuff to help us get through social distancing at home. Not sure what to gift a child other than your own? Toys sold through the site are thoughtfully arranged by age group.

What a treat! Need something today? We’re here with our new expanded hours 9am-4pm Monday – Saturday and 10am-3pm on Sunday.

Sending you health and wellness!
