Main Street is a great spot for antique and second hand furniture enthusiasts. Between 16th and 25th Avenues, there are many stores which feature traditional antiques and 20th century nostalgia, ranging from art deco accessories to 1950s and '60s kitschy retro items. Sunday afternoons tend to be the busiest time, attracting groups of browsers and window shoppers.
A vibrant, hip shopping district has also sprung up in just the last 5 years, but already there are tons of clothing and lifestyle stores to shop. Shops in this area tend to cater to a stylish, hip clientele, and often feature work by local designers and artists. The Main Street shopping district runs from Main & 6th Ave to Main & 30th Ave, but continues to expand north and south as the area continues to evolve into a hot destination for sartorially savvy shoppers. www.vancouver.com/shopping/shopping_by_neighbourhood/antique_row/
