Last Days Of Shopping In Buenos Aires - Palermo Soho - Calma Chica

Iconic futbol game

Knock-off of Eames chair comes in 4 colors, about $90.US

"Amigos" and bean bag chairs among cow hide rugs

Rows of penguin pitchers

Calma Chica is a kind of hip emporium of typical Argentine things. The snappy displays make a plastic dish pan look uber cool. Cow hide rugs and chairs, ceramic pitchers in the shape of penquins, table top parillas (BBQ grill) - the most common kind they use in restaurants and at home, leather place mats, an iconic futbol (fusbol) table, and crazy amigos (large dolls) and bean bag chairs with a head rest (that everyone here seems to love), along with a knock-off of the Eames potato chip chair (in 4 colors), toys, thermoses, and tote bags. Prices are moderate. We bought a ball for our dog Cholo.
I snapped these "illegal" photos of the inside of the store...
