About Us

Originally located on Fennell Avenue and Upper Ottawa in Hamilton, La Rondine Gift Store was purchased from Carmela Scopinaro in June of 2018 and has since moved to 38 Wilson Street West in Ancaster.

Because of Carmela’s 40+ years of experience in the gift and children’s special occasion-wear industry, she remains as La Rondine’s Sales Consultant.  A great friendship has evolved between her and new owner Angela Febbraro, and together, their passion to make customers happy and their creativity are qualities that are unmatched. Her legacy continues in this new chapter at La Rondine Occasions Inc. alongside Angela.

As a proud family-owned business, our mission and focus is to always provide our customers with memorable in-store experiences when shopping for their special celebrations. We know children of all ages usually dread shopping for formal wear – which is why we pride ourselves in making it simple, easy and fun! Your child will leave with cheerful memories of shopping for their special day, which will make you happy, too!

Visit us for your next special occasion or contact us for more information on our product selection.
