I believe today’s woman can have it all,” explains mompreneur, Francine Delarosa, when asked if the modern, working woman can have the whole package, including kids, marriage, and a career. Raising a family of three while attending to her fourth child, Give Wink, a children’s boutique in Miami, Florida, Delarosa lives a full and busy life as all mompreneurs do. As a first time expecting mother and owner of a home décor shop, Delarosa hunted unsuccessfully for the perfect nursery furniture and accessories, which lead her to dedicate a corner of that store to children’s décor. Falling in love with catering to excited new parents and the joy of decorating children’s rooms, Delarosa launched the online boutique in 2005 opened Give Wink in November 2009. A venue that offers a fun alternative to the generic big box children’s store, Give Wink provides an abundance of educational toys, unique children’s furniture and accessories, baby gear and gifts hand selected by Delarosa for busy mothers. Give Wink is not just a store but a concept.
Based in Miami, Florida, Give Wink is so much more than your run of the mill children’s shop. Specializing in educational toys and children’s furnishings, Give Wink offers a full line of custom bedding, endless options of personalized gifts, and design oriented kids furniture, all brought to you by a staff of space planning specialists to ensure each customer finds the right pieces for their space and lifestyle. Although Give Wink is Delarosa’s fourth baby, the store is really a family affair. Her husband, Sidney Delarosa, uses his architectural background to design an exclusive kids furniture line for Give Wink, while their three boys David, Salomon, and Samuel handle quality control. Delarosa explains, “Give Wink customers have come to trust that products sold at Give Wink are of the highest quality. My boys test many of the products I sell. I want to make sure they exceed my expectations of fun, durability, and educational value.”
