Style for Your Story is Taya's mantra. Over the years Taya has come to be known for fashionable, unique, easy to wear and affordable clothing, footwear, handbags, jewelry and accessories for today's modern woman. Who is today's modern woman? A woman whose style is young and fashionable but is beyond her teens and isn't ready to dress like her mom! She is a woman who travels, is on the go and wants style as much as comfort and practicality. Taya's footwear lines are known to be fashion forward yet comfortable, handbags that are practical and something a little bit different, jewelry that's classic and handmade, clothing that's on trend and easy to wear and accessories that are fun!
Taya began in 2005 as a fashion and accessories retail store in St. Jacobs, Ontario, Canada. Owner Lisa Hopf's background in retail began in 1997 with her first store in St. Jacobs, Quaint Essentials. Quaint Essentials began in the Country Mill and in 2004 moved to Front St across from the Silos and was well known for offering contemporary home decor and furniture accents, gifts and jewelry. When a small retail space became available on the main street in the village shortly after, it made sense to expand on the jewelry offerings and branch out into fashion accessories. Quaint Essentials closed in 2010 and from 2011-2014 Lisa operated a second Taya location in downtown Kitchener, ON. After 20 years of bricks and mortar retail, Lisa decided to close Taya in St. Jacobs because of the changing retail landscape.
