21st Century Flea Market

With over 170 vendors selling shabby chic furniture, collectibles, memorabilia and 1950s kitsch homeware – the 21st Century Flea Market in Vancouver certainly has something for everyone.

The 21st Century Flea Market is one of the best antique and collectibles markets in Vancouver. And one can easily spend a whole day browsing all 185 tables from over 170 vendors, full to the brim with mid 20th-century antiques, collectibles, memorabilia, upcycled furniture, and silverware.

Held on the same premises as the Retro Design & Antiques Fair, this popular European-style flea market normally takes place every other month, and is simply unmissable. Also, it is advised to set aside some time to explore Commercial Drive – ranked as one of North America’s hippest neighborhoods. The colorful area is scattered with eclectic boutiques, art galleries, and trendy bars.

Vendors are friendly, chatty and always willing to negotiate on prices. Expect to find a lot of rare and unusual treasures at the 21st Century Flea Market. Shop for retro furnishings, classic novels and comic books, dolls and toys, kitchenalia, clocks, postcards, china and glass, country stuff, linens and lace, paintings, bottles and tins, advertising, pottery and so much more!

In order to keep out time wasters, and allow space for true vintage fanatics – general admission is $5. The market also offers special early bird admission for $20, which means they get to enter the market an extra 3 hours before it opens to the general public. Children under 13 have free access with adult admission.

The market has many amenities, such as free parking, a delicious snack bar, and an on-site ATM. The 21st Century Flea Market also offers a unique service which you can’t find at most flea markets – drop-in appraisals. Drop in and meet with their in-house appraiser, Gale to decipher the true worth of any antique items that you own. There are a few rules – items should be small enough to carry, with a maximum of three items per person allowed. For more information about charges, check out their website!
