Second hand shops in Vancouver
Posted December 3rd, 2011 - 11:16 am by from Guarapuava, Brazil (Permalink)
Hi everyone,

I'm Brazilian and I'll be in Vancouver from January to April, to study at UBC.
I'd like to know if there are second hand shops in Vancouver, where I could buy a minifridge,a microwave, a comforter (duvet) and kitchen equipment (plates, cutlery, etc).
thank you for your help,

Bem-vindo, Marcia!

This group is not very active, so don't get demotivated or take it personally, there are a lot of helpful couch surfers in Vancouver and you'll find them in the main group "Vancouver CouchSurfers"

As for the second hand stores, this will be easy. There are a lot of these and they are called 'thrift stores' here, I'm sure you can find one close to your place, maybe google maps can be helpful.

HI Jennifer,

thank you for your kind words. I'm sorry I never got the chance to meet other CSers in Vancouver, and I'm going back to Brazil soon.
Maybe some other time.

Hey there, there are so many second hand stores.
I know about 3 just in the Kits are.
There is one for SPCA (animal shelter or something like that) on Broadway and Collingwood, there is a 2nd (salvation army)one on broadway a little further up the street one block east of MacDonald street (don't know the street name right now, but it is opposit of starbuckcafe next to saveway.)
And the third one is on 4th and Mac Donald next to the gas station. It is called "my favourite thrift store". it's pretty pricy though since they have persian rugs and stuff. I am not sure what donations are for in that one though.

Hope that help.
