San Telmo Market.

This is the place where you can find almost anything. Have the urge to get some vintage porn matchbooks? They got 'em. Want a good cut of meat and a warm pair of socks? You can find it here. Have you been searching high and low for some high quality Che Guevara schwag? Well you've come to the right place my friend! This is the place where locals and tourists mingle in harmony. Half of the market is comprised of butcher shops and fruit/vegetable stands. While the other half is a smörgåsbord of random goodness. Vintage clothes, old cameras, souvenirs, musical instruments, plumbing fixtures, and new underwear all under one roof. This place is a hoarder's dream come true.

- WARNING!!! If you know someone that likes to collect lots of old stuff or new underwear don't bring them it, because you may never leave.

Old Phones
Vintage cell phones. If you notice, will barely fit in your pocket.

How do I love you? Let me count the Che's... and the Lennons and the Evitas.

Many Hats
Great place to find a souvenir for a bald friend.

The sign says "Compare Quality" and I will tell you, no finer magnets have I ever seen.

You know what would look great over your fireplace? This portait of someone else's dad.

Sad Painting
Buy one super depressingly sad painting and we'll throw in this Raul Lavie album absolutely free.

Fur coats and crystal chandeliers
This is the High Society Shoppe. Your one stop shop for fine leathers, furs and of course crystal chandeliers. I did say it was high society.

Only the latest in digital technology sold here!

JFK in Argentina
Few people know this, but JFK was the 35th President of Argentina as well.
