The Buenos Aires Toy Museum, We Rent Toys
Topic: Juguetes Alquiler

 

We Rent Toys in Argentina

The Buenos Aires Toy Museum. We "rent" Toys.


From the very early stages within this wonderful life Project that is the creation of the Buenos Aires Toy Museum we have been contacted by all sorts of national and regional movie and TV producers who needed our excellently preserved vintage items for their productions as props or center piece storyline items. We lend and rent all our toys because we know for a fact that each of these objects are not mere games or toys but also historical trademarks that feature an intrinsic symbolical value

The true success and the high demand we¿ve been having on the matter has led us to work out a solid system in order to provide a better and more efficient and effective service. Specially because we¿re proud and honored to be asked to take part in these aesthetic ventures we highly value.

Hence we would like to take this chance to let all aesthetic producers ¿movies, TV, graphic, entertainment and advertising- that all our vintage toys and games as well as the research information we have worked on each of these items are available at request.
Please contact us directly by email and we¿ll work together with you the best possible way thru.

The kind of old antique cars you can find in Argentina or Uruguay
Topic: Uruguay
See this Photo Gallery on Old Vintage Cars from Argentina & Uruguay:
Old Vintage Cars from Argentina and Uruguay, Art Dealer is working on the idea of buying all a Classic car, a Sports car, a vintage classic 4WD from IKA, Argentine Kaiser Industries, as well as a modern 4WD, for its rally car shared time club. Proceeding in the same way one does when acquiring a real estate property, our members will be entitled to the use of each of these vehicles thru a determined period during the year. Owning one of these marvelous vehicles at home, keeping it in perfect tune, and traveling around the world with it to take part in rallies, is very expensive and sometimes a luxury hard to keep up with. But owning it within a club society makes the process much easier, fun and affordable. or more information :Email Bob Frassinetti.

Art and Antiques for Montevideo, Uruguay
Topic: Uruguay

Art and Antiques for Montevideo, Uruguay

 

Uruguay is a beautiful nation, filled with history and culture. Like Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile, Montevideo is a cosmopolitan metropolis which received a strong influx of immigrants throughout its history. The interesting combination of indigenous population and European immigrants resulted in a rich and varied culture that shares some of the old continent's features at the time it adds new meaning to some others because of its own particular evolution.

 

A perfect place in which we can witness that very unique combination is at Montevideo's markets and fairs.

 

Tristan Narvaja Fair is Montevideo's largest and most important antique fair, featuring apart from all sorts of antiques, collectibles and memorabilia, food, cloths and all sorts of kick knacks. Every Sunday from early in the morning to mid afternoon, the tens of blocks that conform the fair begin to populate with thousands of visitors, antique dealers, collectors and curious passers-by’s.

 

On Saturday morning, the option in Montevideo is the open air market of the old city: Plaza Matriz. Located in front of the Cabildo building, this fair less extensive than the Tristan Narvaja one has all sorts of antiques and collectibles, from books to medals, furniture, clothing and even some interesting handcrafts.

 

 

 

The main focus and attraction for dealers and collectors, as we said before is Tristan Narvaja fair. Interesting and appealing for all its evident virtues, this fair has a lot to offer to the visitor who understands the order in the mess, the sounds in the noise, and the particular smells in a mix combination of odours. That's the way fairs are. Complex, chaotic, complicated, and very interesting if one dares to experience the journey to its fullness.

 

This fair, like the majority of the Latin American fairs does not share the order and tidiness of European or American Markets. It is not solely an antique fair, it's a fair that features all things that might be needed by someone at one point, and that were owned by someone who doesn't need them any more. Many of the antiques shown there are not understood as antiques -though many others are- and that's why the range of price is so variable. All these kind of markets were established in Latin America during economical crisis, when people began to sell its belongings to make a living, and they remained as non-standardized Markets.  The best ally when hunting in this market is the trained and keen eye of the expert who manages to highlight among a pile of useless junk a valuable collectible or antique, and who has the ability of bargaining the price with the owner. Someone once said that the best antique dealer's work takes place in a mix combination of detective skills and junkman, a treasure hunter in a packed warehouse of useless items where you might find that perfect object that's not only significant in terms of aesthetics and style but also in terms of cultural value.

 

Don't doubt it, these fairs are filled with amazing items, objects, pieces of furniture, artworks and other interesting findings, the key here is to have the virtue of patience and the keenness of the train eye.

 

So if you are interested in Art, Design or Antiques, and you are travelling to Buenos Aires, Argentina, or to Santiago, Chile or even Montevideo, Uruguay and need to buy and export these items or only need tips and information, please feel free to email us…….Please feel free to contact Bob Frassinetti with thsi email address: Email: Bob Frassinetti.
