Our Story


Since opening our doors in September 1994 in the Kits neighbourhood of home sweet Vancouver, we at Happy 3 have dedicated ourselves to helping all women find confidence, beauty, and most of all happiness through fashion.

Happy 3 is named after our three original founders, Eliza, Happy, and Irene, whom despite coming from entirely different backgrounds, all shared one thing in common, a contagious laugh. Hence, the decision to have “happy” in the store’s name would only be fitting.

While Happy and Irene have since moved on from Happy 3 to conquer the rest of the world, Eliza felt no need to change the store’s name. After all, we will always stay true to our mission in helping all women who walk in our store find confidence, beauty and happiness in the clothes they wear. We do this by providing only the highest quality of clothing tailored to an array of styles and tastes, and at the most affordable prices.

You will not be able to find many of the products we carry elsewhere in Vancouver. This is a testament to our many amazing and loyal consigners from over the years, who continue sending in their hidden gems even when they are living half way across the world.

Fashion in Vancouver never sleeps, nor does it ever stay the same. That is why every day, we constantly find better ways to serve you and your fashion needs, as the smiles on both our customers and consigners is what keeps us motivated, and of course, happy!
