Where can I get a labbit?
That's an excellent question! The Green Mountain Warren of labbits thanks you for your question and your interest in adopting a labbit. Labbits need your love and want be taken on adventures (else they will sit around your house and watch TV all day). There are many types of labbits, and here's where the labbits recommend you adopt them:
|Pipkin hangin' with his peeps at Frank's studio|
Frank Kozik - The warren encourages direct support to the artist. Labbit creator Frank Kozik has a limited number of the latest labbit creations on hand to ship directly to you! What better way to receive a labbit than from the hands of the creator himself? The website allows you to specify your name in case you'd like Frank to sign your labbit or your labbit's swingtag. His wife Sharon is in the studio to sure web operations go smoothly, and studio cat/artist muse/poop creator Edward Goralsky oversees all operations...you know...when he wants to. He is a cat after all. Edward Goralsky would appreciate it if you visit his Facebook page and give it a big Like. He's miffed some cross-eyed cat has more fans when clearly, his own spotted Bengal coat and bright green eyes are deserving of more fans.
|Pipkin visits Kidrobot SF|
Kidrobot - Kidrobot produces Kozik's labbit toys, and along with an online webstore, there are physical retail shops in San Francisco, LA, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, Boulder and London, England. Kidrobot carries a wide range of Happy Labbits (mustachioed and innocent eyed) and Smorkin' Labbits (5 o'clock shadow, smorkin' on a ciggie) in vinyl, plush, and all sizes and colorways.
Next, a selection of online fine art toy shops that have labbits:
Toy Art Gallery - Specializing in rare, limited, one-of-a-kind art toys and sculptures
Les Avocado's Lifestyle Pharmacy - Clover Juneau (the girl labbit here on Year of the Labbit) is from Les Avocao! They have all manner of urban vinyl art toys and 1:6 scale figures
Tainted Visions - Lowbrow paintings, art, vinyl toys and plushies galore

My Plastic Heart - online retailer of designer art toys and collectibles
Pipkin himself (pictured at top and below with his plushy cousins) comes from a boutiquey little fun shop in Port Townsend, WA named ABRACADABRA. They have no online shop, but if you're in the area, step inside and say hello. Tell them Pipkin says "hai!" to everyone still at the shop. He also recommends adoption at little indie toy shops.

Finally, there's large retailers like Urban Outfitters and Barnes and Noble, but both will only carry a small selection of labbits, and the latter doesn't make a point of adopting out toys or building relationships with artists, so who knows how the labbits are treated in store. (At Urban Outfitters, at least the labbits were in the company of other plushies and toys.)
No matter which retailer you choose, please take good care of your labbit...which is info for another FAQ post!
