About Us

    Tinker is a boutique retail establishment that carries a carefully curated assortment of heirloom quality children's products, including clothing, toys, books and accessories from over 20 brands located across Europe, Australia and the United States.

    Clothing sizes offered span from infant through 8 years.

    Tinker is owned and operated by mom of two, Dani Spangler.

    Dani was born and raised in Wisconsin, received her BBA from the University of Iowa, her JD from the University of Wisconsin and started her professional career working for a renewable energy company in Chicago.  After having their two daughters, Dani spent time at home and began developing Tinker.

    “One of my goals in putting this store together was to create a bit of nostalgia for the parents and grandparents who come through to purchase gifts for their children and grandchildren.  From wooden toy swords and pull-along toys, to vintage-style backpacks and purses to hold your little’s treasures, there’s so many pieces here that capture the attention and adoration of adults and children alike.”

    - Dani Spangler, Owner
