Antique Treasures

On my recent trip to Buenos Aires, I visited a vibrant street market that ended at a plaza called San Telmo. The treasures were endless. I only wish I needed a cassette tape wallet because I totally would have bought one:

There were rotary phones every few vendors.

I’m no antiques expert so these could be fake, but some of these Beatles photographs may have been signed by George.

The area, being the oldest in Buenos Aires, also had some neat architecture. As we walked along the street market we spotted this bookstore, one of the oldest in the city:

And the San Pedro Gonzalez Telmo church, one of the oldest in the city:
