A market in Buenos Aires - Buenos Aires

A market in Buenos Aires

Markets: Handcraft

The good thing about markets in Buenos Aires is that all the craft sold there was made by hand. These are made of different materials such as leather, glass, clay, and even dried orange peel!
The best markets are located in Plaza Francia (Recoleta area) and in Belgrano neighbourhood (Juramento and Vuelta de Obigado streets). Both are open on Saturdays and Sundays and public holidays.

Buenos Aires: leather paradise! - Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires: leather paradise!

Leather: Great deals in excellent leather! Leather Review

*Although Florida street in downtown hosts some good shops where to buy leather,all locals agree that the best place to do it is on Murillo street. There are plenty of shops there where you can walk around looking for the best design or the best deals.

*As for bags, wallets and belts the best brands in terms of design and quality are Prüne, Blaqué and Lazaro. These are usually found in shopping malls, as well as in the main shopping streets in Buenos Aires.

Directions: To head to Murillo, just ask a taxi driver to take you there! It's not far from downtown.

Shoppig for clothes in BA - Buenos Aires

Shoppig for clothes in BA

Santa Fè and Còrdoba avenues: Budget shopping (mostly for women)

If you're looking for clothes at low and moderate prices, then these are two streets where you should head for: Santa Fè (in Barrio Norte neighbourhood) and Còrdoba (in Palermo neighbourhood).
Santa Fè is the longest, but it's the nicest of the two. Most of the most important brands are there, as well as not so famous ones. The price usually depends on the quality of the product of course, so don't be tempted by the window price! you should go into every shop that calls your attention and take a look at what they have.
On Còrdoba st. there are many outlet shops, but it's not easy to get nice things and the prices are not so "outlet".

What to buy: Clothes, accesories, shoes, underwear, things for the house, etc.

Directions: Line D (subway) has 4 or 5 different stations along Santa Fè avenue.

Theme: Women's Clothes

Cabildo Avenue - Buenos Aires

Cabildo Avenue

Cabildo Avenue: budget shopping

This is my favourite place to shop. For us locals it's not that cheap, but it is for the tourists.
Most of the shops are for women, and there are some unknown brands as well as famous ones. You'll know which is which because of the prices.
The best brand is COMPLOT (On Cabildo Ave. between Juramento and Mendoza streets). Do visit it, 'cos I'm sure you'll like it unless you dress too plainly. Another good one is MATERIA, on the same block as Complot.

What to buy: Mostly clothes, but also shoes, accesories, underwear and things for the house.

Address: Cabildo Avenue (in Belgrano neighbourhood)

Directions: Cabildo is very long. But the main point there is the corner of Cabildo and Juramento st.
Subway line D: get off at Juramento station and walk along Cabildo (both to the north and to the south)

Galerias Pacifico - Buenos Aires

Galerias Pacifico

Galerías Pacífico: Art in a shopping mall Galerías Pacífico Shopping Mall Review

This is a must-see place due to the beautiful painting that is in the ceiling, right in the middle of the mall, above the fountain.
The shops are all first-class. You can get clothes, leather goods, shoes, books, etc. There's a big food court on the basement.

What to pay: For an average local this is a pricey place, but not for you guys! cos you'll divide the tap price by 3!

Address: Florida and Cordoba st.

Phone: 5555-5100

Unicenter shopping - Buenos Aires

Unicenter shopping

Unicenter shopping: The most complete and biggest mall Unicenter Shopping Mall Review

This is the biggest mall in South America.
It's 25 minutes from downtown by taxi, but it's really worth visiting.
This is a three-storey mall with all the most important brands, for men, women and children.
On the 3rd floor there's a huge food court and a cinema, Hoyts Cinemas, with 14 screens.
On that same floor there's a video arcade with a small rollercoaster for little kids. You can play pool and bowling too there.
There's Falabella inside, which is a two-storey department store.

What to buy: Electrical appliances, clothes, shoes and bags, make-up, toys, furniture, books and CDs are some of the things you can buy here. One of our best supermarkets is here too, on the ground floor. It's called Jumbo. It's the most expensive but the most varied, so it's worth visiting.

Address: In Martinez . The taxi driver will know!
