Ferretería del Norte

Ferreteria del Norte - Montevideo 947 - Cuidad Autonoma de Buenos Aires

La tarjeta de Ferreteria del Norte – Norte’s business card

We found Ferretería del Norte in the Yellow Pages a couple of years ago when we were looking for sandpaper.

After that we bought a Skil belt sander from them when we were refinishing our floors.  We have bought quite a few large cans of remover, bags of steel wool, boxes of screws and various other tools there over the years.


Shower curtain rod – Made in Argentina – ALEX brand – $109

When we renovated our kitchen the guys doing the work were impressed how quickly the Norte guys delivered the materials. We just bought a shower curtain rod off of them that we have been wanting to change it for a while.  They have competitive prices, they know their business and they are friendly.

Ferretería del Norte is a business that provides a few individuals in the community with credit which is representative of their character.  Every once in a while we will drop in to say hi if they are not busy.  They like football.

Un par de años atrás encontramos Ferretería del Norte en las Páginas Amarilllas buscando papel de lija.

Entonces compramos una lijadora de banda cuando rehicimos nuestros pisos.  Compramos también varias latas enormes de removedor, lana de acero, cajas de tornillos y herramientas a través de los años.

Teapot – Made in Uruguay – 1 liter – $80 – Tetera – Industria Uruguaya

We were in there a couple of weeks ago and we bought a few things – a tea pot that is of Uruguayan origin, an oven mitt made in Argentina and a laminated bamboo chopping block made in China.

They gave us a discount on the oven mitt and the chopping block and the teapot was already on sale.

They have a lot of nice merchandise in their store and we are planning on returning when it is time for us to look for a new stainless steel pot.

Cuchillos de Acero al Carbono y Ferretería Fullone


The knife in the middle is well worn from years of use – El cuchillo del medio está más gastado por años de uso.

We love cooking and we are always improving our kitchen with more functional equipment and utensils.

We enjoy using quality knives and when we need to carve meat, like most carniceros in Buenos Aires, we prefer carbon steel knives.

We like the knives that are made in Argentina utilizing Swedish Eskilstuna blades.

We bought our small 4″ knife at Ferretería Fullone on Avenida San Juan for $129 a couple of months ago.

He made sure to explain that the knife was not stainless and we said that that was what we were looking for.

Some other customers joined in the conversation and it was agreed all around that carbon steel gets sharper.

We are planning on buying some more knives from Sr. Fullone in the future as he carries the knives in all the sizes from 4″ to 14″.

Ferretería Fullone - San Juan 2007, C.A.B.A.

Ferretería Fullone – Hours – Monday to Friday 9am to 1 pm and 4 pm to 8 pm – Saturdays 9am to 2 pm

Nos encanta cocinar y siempre estamos mejorando nuestra cocina con equipo y utensilios más prácticos. 

Nos gusta usar cuchillos de calidad y cuando preparamos carne, como la mayoría de los viejos carniceros en Buenos Aires, preferimos los cuchillos de acero al carbono.

We discovered most of the stores that we post walking around different parts of Buenos Aires.  The city is huge and prices can vary greatly from area to area and store to store.

Bazar Gastronómico de Sr. Carlos N. Ygon – Gastronomy Store “Rosali”

We discovered Sr. Carlos Ygon´s store while we were walking around San Cristóbal  a while ago.

He is a pleasant person that we look forward seeing on our next visit.  He has competitive prices as well.

We have bought a couple of toasters and a bread pan there.  We have given the toasters as gifts.  We just bought another  toaster for $70.  The toaster is useful for not only making toast but you can use it on the oven or you can put a hot kettle or pot on it.  It is enameled so you can wash it and it will not rust.  The toaster measures 27 cm by 27 cm and is made in Argentina and the brand is Ericó.
