Vancouver on the Cheap: Great Grandview Garage Sale


If you were to create a Venn diagram where one circle was labeled “cheap” and the other labeled “awesome”, the middle point where they cross over could be labeled “Vancouver on the Cheap”. In other words, this is a weekly series on things to do and places to go in Vancouver that fall into that magical category of being both cheap and awesome.

Who doesn’t love a garage sale? Okay, maybe there are people who don’t get excited at the idea of going through a stranger’s rejected stuff, but I say that those people are missing out. I have cleaned up at garage sales, from mint condition luggage to furniture and a lot of great books (if you like reading and aren’t trolling yard sales, you are missing out.) Well, whether you’re a veteran sale hunter or new to the game, there is an epic neighbourhood-wide yard sale happening in the Great Grandview neighbourhood. Great Grandview covers Clark to Nanaimo and Broadway to the Burrard Inlet. You can check the map of participating households here – there are a lot of options.
