Buenos Aires - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

Leather goods and some wood products. Buenos Aires has ferias on the weekends where you can buy handicrafts, and on trips to the provinces there are a lot of cool things on offer. Some people had furniture made here. - Apr 2022

Maybe leather goods or hand-painted signs called fileteado, but I wouldn't call it a shopping post. You'll be able to find stuff for souvenirs, though--check out the artisan fairs in many plazas on most weekends. - Jul 2020
