A guide to antiquing in Canada


Whether you’re visiting Canada or living there year round, be advised that spring and summer are the best time of the year to go antique hunting from coast to coast in the “Great White North””!

Most dealers in Canada have been stocking up for the tourist season and when the weather is so pleasant like it usually is in spring and summer, it’s fun to take a picnic and drive down country roads from Quebec to British Columbia, stopping at yard sales, flea markets and local shops to search for treasures.

From the East coast to the West coast, here are some of our favorite provinces in Canada to enjoy the thrill of the hunt.
