It was a Saturday afternoon with child-care duties and nothing planned; the Straight’s event listings turned up a “Pop Culture Collectibles Fair and Computer Swap Meet” said to include toys and comic books, so I grabbed a nearby kid and took off.

Pop Culture Collectibles Fair and Computer Swap Meet

At the Scottish Cultural Centre.

You could get a decent-looking not-too-old MacBook for $300. I came home with two Sixties comic books for the kid: one Tweety Bird, one Roadrunner. Also a CD: The Best of John Lee Hooker, 1965 to 1974.

Also, a bag of vintage marbles.

$5 worth of vintage marbles

The whole thing, including admission, came in under $20. Plus, the kid had a good time.
