The 21st Century Flea Market is one of the best antiques and collectibles markets in Vancouver. You can easily spend an entire day browsing the 185 tables of over 170 vendors filled to the brim with mid-20th century antiques, collectibles, memorabilia, upcycled furniture and silverware.
Held on the same grounds as the Retro Design & Antiques Fair, this popular European-style flea market is usually held every other month and is not to be missed. You should also set aside some time to explore Commercial Drive, one of the hippest neighborhoods in North America. The colorful area is dotted with eclectic boutiques, art galleries and trendy bars.
Vendors are friendly, chatty and always willing to negotiate prices. Expect to find many rare and unusual treasures at the 21st Century Flea Market. Shop for retro furniture, classic novels and comic books, dolls and toys, kitchenware, clocks, postcards, china and glass, country stuff, linens and lace, paintings, bottles and cans, advertising, pottery, and much more!
To keep out the time-wasters and make room for the true vintage fanatics, general admission is $5. The market also offers a special Early Bird Admission for $20, which allows you to enter the market 3 hours before it opens to the general public. Children under 13 get in free with an adult admission.
The market has many amenities including free parking, a delicious snack bar and an on-site ATM. The 21st Century Flea Market also offers a unique service you won't find at most flea markets - drop-in appraisals. Drop in and meet with their in-house appraiser, Gale, to decipher the true value of any antique items you may own. There are a few rules - items should be small enough to carry, with a maximum of three items per person. For more information on fees, check out their website!
