The Pulgas is a good start.

Its the old time flea market of furniture, on Dorrego and Niceto Vega, on the edge of Palermo Hollywood. Open every day, full of incredible characters, pickers and scroungers.

There are expensive antiques there- at half the price of the San Telmo antique stores- but there is also plenty of cheap used stuff of no particular provenance.

Most of the older stuff there is really solidly built, and has soul.

But if you insist on Ikea grade particleboard modern trash, you can also try Mercado Libre, the South America version of ebay-
