What they say...

When I say “affordable and adorable clothes”, do the words “saving the planet” also spring to your mind? No? Well, they should.

Especially if your shopping spot is Saint-Henri’s La Gaillarde. Not only does La Gaillarde sell some seriously beautiful summer clothes (both new and used) for cheap, but the local designers featured in their boutique are almost all dedicated to keeping things as ethical as possible. So go ahead and splurge. Not only will you be improving your summer look, but you’ll also be helping out the planet. Win-win? You know it.

La Gaillarde - more than just a clothing store!

Promoting responsible consumption – La Gaillarde’s team is passionate about teaching consumers about the impact of their purchases on society and the environment.

Supporting local ethical fashion designers – La Gaillarde offers designers a unique and well-established retail venue for their products. Our team works actively to develop, supervise, and promote Quebec eco-designers to consumers and the media in order to put ethical fashion in the limelight.

Giving a second life to forgotten clothes – Donations of clothing, accessories and fabric from individuals and businesses  are sorted, selected and either made available to the public in our boutique or recycled accordingly.

La Gaillarde participates in developing the neighbourhood and community. We promote more than 50 local eco-designers,  have over 150 members, and are grateful to our countless volunteers.

Vintage

Our vast vintage and second-hand collection reveals the best pieces of times past…sumptuous dresses from the 50s, funky jeans, hand-beaded bags, and so much more waiting to be rediscovered. An authentic, quality vintage piece easily rivals the retro-inspired, disposable pieces that are so easily available in the market today in terms of uniqueness and durability.  Every vintage piece at La Gaillarde is handpicked with love by our team. 

Ecodesign

To update your chic and virtuous wardrobe, we offer recycled creations made in Quebec with inspiration of the moment. Guided by the team at La Gaillarde, local eco-designers benefit from our expertise and our services aimed at disseminating eco-glam fibers. This experience allows them to develop their potential and to respond appropriately to the needs of a flourishing market.
