Tink’s at The Taubman Opening October 1st

ROANOKE, Va. (Sept. 20, 2016) – Have you noticed a little pixie dust floating along the breeze on Salem Avenue? It’s likely due to the increased comings-and-goings between the Taubman Museum of Art and TINK’S PLACE, neighbors on one of downtown Roanoke’s prettiest and most bustling thoroughfares.

And the reason behind the comings-and-goings? The Taubman Museum of Art and Ninette White, the creator and proprietor of the eclectic home décor and gift boutique TINK’S PLACE, are pleased to officially announce a new retail venture sure to please art lovers and pixies alike: TINK’S AT THE TAUBMAN.

The new boutique, located on the Museum’s ground floor at 110 Salem Ave., will open to the public Saturday, Oct. 1.

A ribbon cutting and soft opening are scheduled at the Museum Friday, Sept. 30, at 11 a.m. The public and members of the media are invited to attend.

TINK’S AT THE TAUBMAN will be distinct yet complementary from TINK’S PLACE, located directly across from the Museum at 115 Salem Ave.

“Both locations will offer unique works by American artists, but each will carry different artists and artworks,” said White. “Guests at TINK’S AT THE TAUBMAN also will notice the Museum’s exhibition themes reflected in many of the boutique’s offerings. And they’ll recognize many of the region’s artists they’ve come to know and love, including jewelry designer Christi Kang, painter Nancy Stark, and photographer Ed Galluci, to name just a few.”

Guests who visit TINK’S AT THE TAUBMAN Sept. 30 will receive a 15 percent discount on boutique items. As a membership benefit, Taubman Museum of Art members will always receive a 10 percent discount at the boutique. Discounts do not apply to commissioned artist pieces.


TINK’S PLACE is a home décor and gift boutique located in downtown Roanoke, Va. Owner Ninette White is a dedicated artist and “pro antiquer” who believes in special and one-of-a-kind pieces that speak to people.

TINK’S AT THE TAUBMAN, a new retail venture at the Taubman Museum of Art, is a distinct yet complementary boutique offering unique artists and artworks. The shop’s hours initially will mirror those of the Museum: Wednesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 12-5 p.m., with extended hours until 9 p.m. on the first Friday and third Thursday of each month.
