  • Elisabeth with Value Vintage is a total angel! She found an amazing center stone for what is now my ring ( it was an engagement ring), along with some of the other setting stones. Working with someone else to create the band itself, the ring turned out beautiful and well crafted. She even took the time to visit me at work with 'grooming questions', all the while assessing what I did for work and taking a peek at my hands to see how I used them. Talk about personal touch! I had no clue, I thought she was just a regular grooming customer. With my fiance's vision and her talent as a designer, I now have a ring that I can safely wear at work that won't snag in fur, that won't break the stones, and that is sturdy and well made to stand up to frequent hand washing and still look fabulous! Thank you Elisabeth - we'll be contacting you again to get our wedding bands done!!
  • Lot of used and second hand things. Also new - mostly not expensive things from China. Large selection of phone's accessories, parts for computers and any other electronics. Open Saturday and Sunday only. Sometimes also in holidays. Not enough parking on site. Entry ticket 1,5 CAD
  • The Vancouver Flea Market is a really fun rainy day activity. It costs $1.50 to enter, and I find that most of the kiosks/sellers have some wiggle room / willingness to negotiate. I like to keep my eyes peeled for camera equipment and antiques/decor. Seems to make up the bulk of the market.
  • Great place to pickup vintage items. Actually many bargains here. if over 65 take advantage of seniors day every Tuesday 30 '/, off. Payment can be most credit cards, debit or cash.
  • Lots of bad stuff with no price tags. Mostly of the sellers are rude and don't give you any room for negotiation. The place is a mess and they charge you $1.50 just to go in. There's no free parking and the spots available are very narrow. Tip: thrift stores offer the same things you will find there for 10% of the price.
