Fall Floor Model Sale – 1244 Wellington Street West

We’ve had quite the busy time here at Fab the past couple of weeks- our furniture floor models are ON SALE! We hardly ever mark down furnishings, so now is your chance to scoop up a fantastic deal. We’ve already parted with our beautiful Walnut Leander Crib, the gorgeous Dutailier Papaya nursery set, and too many Monte Chairs to count.

The mega-sale is all in the name of bringing in new pieces. New colours, new styles, new everything! Monte Design is now offering sunny yellow fabric, which I think is particularly wonderful on their classic Joya Rocker.

If you’re planning your nursery, now’s the time to come visit- our awesome staff can explain how each piece converts into a larger bed or what Green Guard is, for mommies who want to be in the know. And, seriously, the best aspect of a floor model sale has got to be cutting down on waiting times. When planning your nursery, do remember to keep in mind that custom furniture can take as little as  4 weeks, or as many as 12 weeks to arrive at your door. All of our pieces are built to order, so nothing collects dust in a warehouse! If you’re under a time crunch, floor models are a great option.

New today, we’ve marked down the All Seasons and Mix Twin Panel Bed Set even further to 30% off. These guys have only been on the floor since May, and are in great condition!

 

Planning your room? Check out this great blog by Young America. It’s all about setting up a nursery fit for your little one- I absolutely love the looks that they’ve come up with! Specifically the book wall- what a perfect little library for your burgeoning bookworm.

Be forewarned, Fabbies, pieces are going quick! Come visit our Flagship location at 1244 Wellington Street West today!

Baby Paparazzo

Since I’ve started here at Fab I’ve become incredibly tuned in to the Strollerscape of neighbourhoods, movies and random websites. It’s almost like a grown-up version of Car Bingo as I call out “MacLaren! City Mini!! Bumbleride Indie!!” whilst watching movies with friends and family alike. I’m sure that this is an endearing trait, so I thought I’d share my obsessions with you, our Fab Public.

Some of our Faves have been popping up on popular celeb blogs like People.com, Huffington Post & Perez Hilton. It seems to me that Hollywood is rife with Baby Jogger City Mini’s. The Mini has been the stroller of my dreams for a while now, so ignore the gushing that will follow! This one-step fold stroller weighs in at 17 lbs and is ideal for travel- simply pull the strap in the centre of the seat and she’s folded. It comes in a variety of colours, has a lockable front wheel and boasts a double size that will fit through any doorframe. Celebs that have been seen strolling with either the single or double model include Halle Berry, Matthew McConaughey and Cynthia Nixon.

For the more active set we’ve been seeing a lot of the classic BOB Revolution. It has been the front-runner (pun fully intended!) when it comes to Joggers for quite some time, and shows no signs of slowing down in popularity. The swiveling front wheel provides the maneuverability that you need for city-living, but locks in place to provide a sturdy base for off-road activities. The Revolution has been seen while celebs like Gisele Bundchen, Alyson Hannigan and Jennifer Garner head out for a neighbourhood jog.

And finally we find ourselves at the heavy-hitter. The stroller brand that most celebrities are flocking to is the MacLaren. This family of strollers includes eight different models for you to choose from. They’re great for on-the-go parents who are looking to travel with something light-weight, yet sturdy. The most popular model for Fabbies and Celebs alike is certainly the Triumph. This buggy has a maximum weight of 50 lbs. It comes with a carrying strap, as well as a raincover and features a multiple stage recline. For a good indication of how popular it is, check out the huge photo album MacLaren has posted on their Facebook page. Amy Adams, Jason Batemen and David Blaine proudly push their models. And check out Jessica Alba below;

What is your little star riding around in this summer? If you’re still searching for the perfect lightweight pram, swing by one of our locations for a demo on these strollers and many more!

We’re Expecting… A Brand New Flagship Store!!

Have you heard?

We’re Expanding into a new

(and much bigger) location!

Here at Fab we think that winter hibernation is for the bears! We’ve been busily working on our BRAND NEW LOCATION.The soon-to-be Flagship store will be located at 1244 Wellington Street West! Just a hop, skip and a jump from our current home at 1308.

As the days grow longer we’ve been taking advantage. Our store rooms are all packed, our offices too, and we’re beginning the exciting process of merchandising the new digs! Since we’re fans of keeping it all in the Fab Family we’d like to share some of the reno-photos with you!

Check it out!

A (giant) shell of a store will soon be filled with smiling Sophie’s, Cozy Monte gliders and a whole stable of new brands and merchandise. What can YOU look forward to at the new location? More stock on site to cut down on pesky wait times, gorgeous backlit shelving, change rooms and a massive furniture department!


We’re so excited to announce that you will be able to    purchase Oilo Bedding chez Fab! The gorgeous and modern designs will suit any neutral or gender specific nursery. I’ve been trying to convince my husband that I should purchase the Wheels Motif crib set in bulk and     sew it into a King-Sized set.

We’re also adding Baby Sam to the lineup- if you’re expecting a little lady, do check out the Tickled Pink Bedding! Completely cute styling that won’t break the bank!

Perhaps our biggest expansion comes to the furniture department; We’ve got Young America Cribs and Toddler Beds all set to build, as well as the delightful TULIP and Leander collections en masse. Have a look at what you’ll find in our new showrooms. What do you think? Very Mad Men Nouveau, yes?? And while you’re deciding if you’re Mod About Baby or Classic Down-Home Chic, you can sit back and relax in the comfort of our new special orders service bar!

We received a shipment of the Bumbleride Flite– This zippy little stroller weighs a portable 13 pounds and can be used from infancy right on up to 50lbs- the perfect downsize for loyal Bumbleriders.

Are you searching for a diaper bag that will make your girlfriends jealous? We’ll still be carrying fan-favourites like OiOi, Storksak and SoYoung, but will be adding the delightful Koochu bags! With zip-out liners for when you’re in need of a quick clean! The Cosmopolitan tote reminds me of a Jennifer Aniston fave, and now I’ve only got to decide between brown and black! Decisions, decisions..

We can’t wait to welcome you and yours to our new dream home!

Look for Fab Baby Gear at 1244 Wellington Street West as of February 10th!
