Default Vancouver Island Flea Market?

Anyone know of any flea markets on Vancouver Island? The wife and I are getting ready to start a new home and I'd like to do it cheap. I tried google, but didn't have much luck.

It astounds me at the lack of "underground" commerce around here. Back in STL, garage sales, auctions & flea markets were common place.

Yeah, don't personally know of any flea markets... most of them are specialty affairs where someone will arrange a Doll and Toy one...that sort of stuff.

Summer is great for garage sales... at least in Victoria area.

Have you looked at Kijiji or Craigs list? Craig's list generally has a large section devoted to free stuff.

Thanks all. I've tried Ebay, CraigsList, UsedVictoria and Kijjii but everyone is convinced what they have is worth 95% of what a new one costs.

Also, when did furniture get so expensive?! I remember going to garage sales back home and paying $10 for a decent couch. Now they're $800 for one that was pooped on by a dog. (The turd costs extra).

Thanks for the info! I'll keep at it. We did manage to do alright for ourselves on Varage Sale. After 3 weeks of waiting and numerous e-mails we talked some woman down from $200 to $80 for a used chaise lounge.

A friend and I were looking at Craig's list today. I couldn't believe some of the prices. Lots of people charge as if it's new. Crazy.
