I stopped by to buy some souveniers to take to Argentina. Interesting items and a very lovely service. If you want to visit a shop and feel like home, go to Gepetto's.

Gepettos will keep even the fussiest customer happy with a range of offerings from beautifully crafted wooden toys to more standard commercial offerings. The puppets in particular- as you’d expect from the name - are a standout feature. For those with young kids, this branch...More
