WE'RE THE TEAM BEHIND THE GIFTED - Thanks for stopping by!
The Gifted started as a small, independently owned and operated brick & mortar gift shop in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
The Gifted quickly blossomed into a perfectly adorable corner shop catering to shoppers looking to gift something out of the ordinary.
From quirky housewares and paper goods, to collectible vinyl toys and plush, our customers can expect a totally unique selection of art and design products.
We experienced it all in 2016: our first transaction, a sad sack's attempt at breaking into the shop one night, art openings, the insanity that Christmas shoppers inevitably bring, and more. Have a look at the profile that Black Lake Media had the chance to make about us during that time:
2017 brought the news that The Gifted would be closing their retail location, in favour of moving stock online and at select pop-up locations throughout the year. What may sound like a blow to our business model, this next step is exactly what we needed: a chance to shake off what wasn't working and to forge ahead with The Gifted 2.0!
Starting (and maintaining) your own business is no small feat - but we're over the moon with what we've accomplished thus far. We can't wait to see where the next few years will take us.
