El Salvador 4500-4600

El Salvador at Scalabrini Ortiz Avenue is my favorite spot to start the tour.
You can get a nice map of the area at http://www.guiaypf.com.ar/esp/infinito/guiaypf/ruta/mapa/mapa/FMapa.asp?opcion=IBD&id=13376&ciudad=\Capital%20Federal\&calle=EL%20SALVADOR&nivel=12

On the left-hand side, you'll find Atípica objetos placenteros (El Salvador 4510, www.atipicaobjetos.com.ar).
This is a tiny shop on the very edge of Palermo Soho, with an overwhelming collection of Argentine ethnic designs, home decor and fashion accessories. All are unique pieces by local artists. Find silver jewelry, chandeliers, dolls, ceramics, glass, coasters, textiles, mirrors, boxes, neatly arrayed in one-of-a-kind pieces. Discounts happen from time to time. And if you can’t make it to Buenos Aires, you can order online; the hand made products are shipped all over the world...
Here are my favorite picks from Atípica:

There is a variety of handpainted handbags with animé motifs.

Silver necklaces & earrings.

Insects paper lamps and mirrors.

Cute cat artworks.


I love these ancient look dolls. They look great on the floor, over the bed, a sofa or on a shelf.


Wooden or cardboard boxes worked with collage technique and handpainted indigenous motifs. Ideal for keeping tea bags, storing jewelry or whatever you wish...

If you continue walking towards Malabia St., you'll find the following shops on this same block: Assley (El Salvador 4564, www.assley.com.ar), Couceiro (El Salvador 4566, www.couceiro.biz), Rocío Martinez, Maria Aversa (El Salvador 4580, www.mariaaversa.com.ar), Garden Angel (El Salvador 4588, http://www.universogardenangels.com), Marcela Pagella (El Salvador 4590) and Arte Étnico Argentino (El Salvador 4600, http://www.arteetnicoargentino.com).

hola!
muy interesante la informacion.
vivo en canada hace algunos años y tengo una amiga brasilera que tiene un negocio de accesorios de moda (la mayoria brasileros, de diferentes artistas) pero estaba interesada en conocer un poco mas de lo que estaba pasando en Buenos Aires y ver si podia encontrar diseñadores argentinos para tambien traer sus productos.
si me pudieras tirar algunas direcciones o sites que pudiera visitar te agradeceria mucho,

gracias!

Hola!
My girlfriend recently returned from a trip to Buenos Aires, where she had a wonderful time (thanks in no small part to checking your blog and some of its really helpful links before she left). She bought a bracelet there for a gift, from Rocio Martinez, one of the stores you mention. I'd like to buy her one for herself, because she loves it so much, and I tried to email the store, but they haven't replied yet. Do you know their phone number? Thank you so much for any help you can provide. Gracias!
