Copy of ABOUT


Paboom combines an ever-changing & eclectic variety of product categories and ideas in one beautiful and open retail space. We believe in the story and personality of the products that we carry and we are always on the hunt for exciting new designers and products that offer a unique energy to your home or space.

We believe that these unique products don’t have to be bank-busting, and we’re on a never ending search to find the coveted balance of great design, function, and price point. You will find your budget goes a long way at Paboom without having to compromise your taste.
Paboom offers a modern, clean and energetic aesthetic, and carries products across many categories, such as:
jewelry, art prints, kitchenware, glassware, textiles, rugs, bathroom accessories, frames, decor objects, stationary, greeting cards, kids, storage, small furniture and much more.
We believe in good vibes- our ever changing product line can be browsed to great music in a relaxed & friendly atmosphere, wrapped up in a family-owned local business in the heart of LOJO (The Lower Johnson Shopping District), in downtown Victoria, BC.




Paboom started in 1997 as a small kiosk in Mayfair Mall during the holiday season. We had such an incredible & positive response from that brief shopping period that we were able to open our first brick & mortar location soon after, on Fort Street in April of 1998.

In 2012, we were offered the exciting opportunity to move & expand into a big, bright & beautiful heritage space on Store Street in Market Square and we just could not resist.... and the rest is history!
