Whether one is vacationing, working, tripping or using them around one’s own  place cargo pants are very useful and convenient.  A few extra pockets always come in handy.

We just bought some Ombú brand cargo pants at Abastecer Seguridad, which is an official Ombú retailer, and we are super happy with our purchase.

Picaportes de Bronce

Restored and unrestored bronze door handles Comparación de picaporte de bronce restaurado

Over the years we have had quite a bit of work done by Herrajes Libertad. 

We have had them fix and shine up our bronze teapot, fix and shine our lamp, restore quite a few door handles and copy bronze pieces that were missing from antique furniture. 

Having the door handles restored made a big difference when we refinished our doors. 

The guys that work there are knowledgeable about their craft and can transmit the idea to the shop and they thoroughly know the trade which has made dealing with them a pleasant experience. 

They like football and good food too.

Nos hicieron una importante cantidad de trabajos en Herrajes Libertad en los pasados años. 

Nos arreglaron y limpiaron nuestra tetera de bronce, nos arreglaron y lustraron nuestra lámpara, restauraron una cantidad de picaportes y copiaron piezas de bronce perdidas de muebles antiguos.

Exchange and Antiques

Exchange and Antiques help you get the currency you need.   They are serious professionals but the atmosphere is pretty relaxed. 

In Buenos Aires most stores will accept your dollars at the official rate but that is usually about 30 percent less than the parallel rate.Exchange&Antiques

Exchange and Antiques is not in the financial district which makes it a more comfortable experience. 

Before exchanging money I check to see what the rate is online.  Exchange and Antiques rate will be a little bit lower than what La Nacion is quoting for the dayThanks to Alfredo for the tip

Exchange and Antiques es una cómoda casa de cambio de dólares.  Son profesionales serios en una atmósfera relax.
