It’s the largest and densest shopping event in Lawrence.  Hundreds of downtown businesses will take part in the Annual Sidewalk Sale next Thursday July 19th, but Wink eyewear holds our version of the Sidewalk Sale for five days instead of just one.  We put everything on sale not just a few things.  And we keep it inside where it’s cool not out on the hot sidewalk.

This year we are including our St. Joe location in the fun too!

Join us at either location during Sidewalk Sale week for a great deal on a new look.



Don’t have a current prescription?  Don’t Worry!

You can still take advantage of our Sidewalk Sale!  After you purchase your frame, we hold the order until you get a new eye exam.  You still get a great deal on your new frames and then see your optometrist when it’s convenient for you.




Wink Lawrence will open early for this year’s Sidewalk sale!  Stop in early to beat the heat and the crowds.

  • Sunday           12-4
