If you like scoring cool swag for affordable prices then you’ll want to check out Richmond’s Illumination Summer Night Market.

Located on Vulcan Way, it’s taking place every weekend until September 10 – and that means you have plenty of time to shop.

The bustling, multicultural market offers Canada’s largest light show, tons of cool products, and delicious food. And with more than 12 sets of colourful light displays reaching up to two metres in height, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take awesome Instagram selfies mid-shopping.

Daily Hive went to the Illumination Summer Night Market armed with $40 in cash and this is what we bought.

These days everyone has a different phone and it seems impossible to find the right charger. But that’s not a problem if you have one of these USB dual chargers in your bag designed for both Android and iPhone devices.

Phone cases

  • Price: $25 for two

Metallic and marble designs are trending right now and now you can dress your phone with them if you buy from the market as opposed to a mainstream retailer.
