Dig into your wallet and imagine what you could buy with your cash at the Vancouver Flea Market.

Nestled beside Terminal Avenue, the iconic red building is packed with vendors selling a kaleidoscope of items that you won’t find anywhere else. For this reason alone, the market has become a weekend tradition for vintage lovers.

Presented-By-Van-Flea-MarketCurious to see what treasures we could unearth, Daily Hive sent someone along to the flea market tasked with uncovering some treasures with just 30 bucks in their pockets.

Take a look below to see what we managed to score.

Snail mail isn’t dead, especially when it’s decorated with epic West Coast locations. What’s also cool is the historical kicker – you can find ones that have already been used. Perfect for framing.
