Join us in a tour to the best place there is for buying Antiques in all South America. That is, San Telmo Antiques Fair in Buenos Aires ARGENTINA.
We are pleased to invite you to join our guided ANTIQUE TOURS on San Telmo Antiques Fair located in Plaza Dorrego (Defensa 1200 Buenos Aires, Argentina ). This historic plaza was the sight of the swearing of National Independence in 1816 before Don Juan Martín de Pueyrredón. During the colony, it was a resting post for wagons traveling from the port to what is now Plaza de Mayo along the first roadway, known today as Calle Defensa. Today, it is the site of the San Pedro Telmo Antique Fair, where street performances by tango dancers, musicians, mimes and colourful characters mingle with the painters, antiquarians and street vendors in a bohemian rhapsody of song, dance and nostalgia.

This market that started in 1970, has 270 stands offering antiques, phonographs, period clothes, jewelry, old books, crafts items and other knickknacks.
