More Big Box Shopping Buenos Aires

Asian inspired at Jumbo $3. - $29.99 US

Iron screens at Jumbo, about $30. US

Fantastic array of baskets at Jumbo

Cool plastic hanging lamps at Easy - about $23. US

Crazy modern chandy EXPENSIVE for Easy at $500. US

When things are cheap in Buenos Aires, they are really cheap. Ceramic plates get scratched easily. Paint comes off the bottom of pots and pans. Flatware is paper thin. Shower curtains are flimsy. We get inexpensive things in big box stores in the USA, but believe it or not they are a better quality of cheap.
