    Parque Arauco mall: wine shopping in Valparaiso

    by gwened Written Dec 20, 2012

    have not purchase wines in stores there, rather go to the bodegas and buy direct near Santiago.
    but if you look at the mall site you see the wines store there and will not open on Dec 25.

    several: buy and visit wineries in Mendoza

    by gwened Written Apr 9, 2012

    I was there several years back with my Argentinian collegues visiting vinyards and it was a good experience. The rest was not interesting to me.

    But I am a wine aficionado/collector.
    This site is from there in Spanish (time to brush up if not known) but tells all bodegas and much tourist info
    http://www.mendozacuyo.com.ar/bodegas.html

    Norton, Trapiche, Esmeralda,Weinert,and the French subsidary Chandon are all very good.
    Hope it helps

    What to buy: taste and buy wines

    What to pay: best prices direct from bodegas

  • Silvia y Mario: Got the best leather jacket

    by iavi1969 Written Jan 27, 2010

    I was gonna write about Silvia y Mario, like I´d discovered a hidden treasure, and found -I must say, with some surprise- dozens of recommendations from this store... anyway, not having discovered it first, I have to add that this is a special spot in downtown BA, close to florida street.

    You name it, they have it. They carry these 80´s style pilots jacket which I totally loved, also some cool white jackets with many zippers and pockets. They just have it all! Their blazers have a great cut.
    Salesgirls are very kind and they also custom make in a day or so. Their prices are ok too. Silvia is a fine and wonderfull person who helped us along our purchases.

    What to buy: Leather: 80´s styled pilots jackets, white zippered jackets with load of pockets, motorcycle jackets, and they also have some nice bags and sweaters.

    What to pay: somewhere between 200 and 300

    just look around the many markets, I got mine in Pisac, by accident actually.the girl was playing with hers and I was so facinated, her mother offered to get me some..
    as a child, I never liked Dolls realy

    What to buy: the Dolls are sooo colourful and loved by every kid I know.I brought back some, and only 1 is left..the rest made a great gift, young and old, have a look at the different hats....representing the region and people in their local clothes. in Cochabamba for example, the women wear white hats like top-hats in form. Aymara women wear Boulder hats....I explained this in my Bolivia page

    What to pay: changes all the time
