Shopping in Buenos Aires

If you're looking for soft, Argentine leather, make a beeline for Murillo street in up-and-coming Villa Crespo. The independent boutiques at Recoleta's elegant Patio Bullrich shopping centre sell local and international designer clothes. San Telmo's Sunday antiques market is a must for bargain-hunters in search of traditional Argentine souvenirs, such as decorative glass siphon soda bottles. Shops are open from Monday to Saturday (10am-8pm), and most accept major credit cards.
