10 Years of LAB
Started from the bottom, now we're here.
In 2009, LAB was born as a pop-up sale, before the pop-up phenomenon, to see if we were needed in our community...we definitely were.
Our first store was 250 sq feet in the rear of our friends' store, Silver Falls Vintage on Ossington before the street was bustling. It was a match made in heaven.
Our baby LAB grew so much in the first year that we spread our wings and moved to a new neighborhood in Lawrence Park, Toronto. After almost two years there, another LAB baby (a human baby) got us thinking that a new way of doing business might be a better way for us.
Our brand new website and studio opened in Bloordale in 2013. Shoppers flocked from all over to shop privately in our showroom and we welcomed online shoppers from all over the world.
2016 brought LAB another fantastic opportunity, moving our studio HQ to a burgeoning community - Hamilton, On. We are so happy to be here, in such a warm and welcoming community.
2018 has brought us so much joy as we've been selected by a massive overseas luxury reseller to vend their goods to our loyal clientele. We have access to thousands of authentic luxury bags, just waiting to find a home! What are you searching for?
2019 has continued to be so rewarding for us. Our brand new beauty selection is growing and proves to be a very popular choice amongst our loyal clientele.
Here's to another 10 years!
