It’s no secret that Vancouver leads the country in the buying and selling of used goods.  As a second-hand market leader, the city has a bustling eco-system built around buying, selling, renting, donating, swapping and consigning.

Different mediums for thrifting get used like online classified mammoths Craigslist and Kijiji as well as the photo-sharing app Instagram which gets used like a consignment catalogue.
