In-Person Summer Sample Sale (at our Chinatown location)

In-Person Summer Sample Sale (at our Chinatown location)

We are hosting our first in-person Sample Sale at our Chinatown location! It's been almost THREE years since we hosted our last event, we can't wait to see you IRL.

Leah Yard Designs Studio
201-161 Keefer Streetđź“Ť
August 28th 12pm-6pm

What's a sample sale?

A sample sale is an event hosted by designers to sell samples and prototypes that are no longer in production. Items are sold "as is" at a reduced price. You can often find one of a kind pieces, or nearly-new designs deeply discounted. (Insider tip: treat it like a treasure hunt! Sometimes we put items in the sale that we LOVE, but can no longer source the materials OR the item was too costly to put into production)



  • Over 300 items to shop
  • One of a kind styles
  • Specialty designs made just for this event
  • Deeply discounted stock (up to 80% OFF)
  • Past collection prototypes (including rare gemstones)
  • Light refreshments
  • In studio discount off regular stock
  • Plus: we're hosting an in-person GIVEAWAY (one lucky winner will win a sample sale "Mystery Bag")



I'm out of town, will there be an online version?

We want to focus on making this in-person event our best yet, which is why we will not be hosting an online version this season. But, we don't want you to miss out! We are planning something special for those who can't make it. Sign up here so you don't miss any updates.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, you are absolutely welcome to bring guests. We will have enough rosé to go around!

When and where is the event?

The event will be hosted at our LYD studio in Chinatown. The address is: 161 Keefer Street, Unit 201 (right above Bao Bei Restaurant). The event will run from 12pm-6pm. We recommend coming right at noon for your best chance to find a one of a kind piece!

Is there parking?

The building does not have reserved parking. There is a parkade right down the street at 180 Keefer Street (inside the Chinatown Plaza)

I'm not sure if I can make it, do I need to rsvp?

You do not need to rsvp. Doors will be open from 12pm-6pm. We hope to see you there!

What payments are accepted?

We can accept cash or credit card in the studio.

Please note: the building is not wheelchair accessible.
