San Telmo Antique Shops - Buenos Aires
Pallarolls: San Telmo Antique Shops Antiques Review

To get an idea of the wealth the powerful families in Buenos Aires possess, head to the 1000 block of Calle Defensa. Every store on this block, including Pallarolls, sells antiques, from crystal lamps to silverware. There are many unique pieces, from a 19th century French navy uniform to a 300-year-old missionary crucifix. In some stores, the cheapest items cost hundreds of dollars. In others, you can find deals such as a French flag from the 1930s for $7. Shop owners are laid back, so it is easy to look without feeling pressure to buy.

Most store owners accept credit cards and can ship whatever you buy back home.
