Hello again and welcome to part two of our "Sandboxing 101" blog series. We've been super busy this month with stock arriving daily and attending buying shows for next Spring and Summer. So as we mentioned in our last post, we are constantly busy with "other tasks", (both in and out of the store) when we’re not assisting our customers at the dressing rooms.
Customers are ALWAYS number one, so please interrupt us if you need assistance! That is why we are in this business. On that note, here is PART TWO!Read More
With nearly a year and a half under our belts in the new (and improved) location on Main Street, we felt this would be the perfect opportunity to enlighten, educate, and explain, everything Sandbox — kind of a “W5” lowdown.
Why did we decide to tackle this subject? Simple! So that you, our customers, have a clear understanding of why we do what we do, and how we can help you have the best Sandbox experience possible. We also want you to know we are not perfect, however our intentions are always good, and we try really hard to make everyone happy. So here goes, The Sandbox 101 and more.Read More

We have arrived at the end of our style makeover journey with Rhonda! Hopefully for Rhonda, this is a jump start to finding her best and happiest self. All of us need an extra boost of confidence every now and again when we lose our way. Sometimes it's as simple as a new haircut or colour, a new way to do your makeup, or an updated look.Read More
When women are in a slump, unfortunately one of the first things to go is their appearance, which is very sad because it can make them feel even worse.

The Sandbox in the City team is always looking for new and inspiring ways to help women look and in turn feel like the best version of themselves. This time around it was team member Megan that was "called to action" when a close friend confided in her that her MOM had all but given up on herself.Read More
Often what should be a fun and festive month, for many women, turns into "I have a closet full of "NOTHING TO WEAR", or what is the "right" thing to wear. Some parties are easy to figure out, especially if formal or cocktail attire is requested. Dresses or dressier separates usually fit the bill perfectly. However when the party is more low key, and less structured it requires a bit more thought.Read More

We get asked this question and many more like it on a daily basis here at the Sandbox.Is this too young for me? Is it too short for my age? I'm a grandma, can I wear that? — the list goes on.
