Nothing to do with Valpo or even Chile in this post but...last week our things finally arrived from Buenos Aires. 3 months of waiting and lots of incompetence from the shipping company and argentine customs. It should have taken a month tops to have our stuff over. So we now have a real bed to sleep in and a wardrobe to put our clothes in. And a big telly.
Anyway, just before we left Argentina we went to the Mercado de las Pulgas in Palermo/Colegiales and bought a couple of chairs...we liked them when we bought them but we couldn't quite remember what they looked like and whether we'd made a good decision. Turns out we did. A few photos below of what we bought (2 identical). "Danish Modern" is the style, from the 60s. Most probably Argentine made replicas from the same era. They need a little bit of work and on Monday they're off to the repair guy to get the sunken seats fixed and the wood cleaned and varnished so hopefully in a couple of weeks i'll be able to post pictures of the finished articles. Including the repairs, they'll have cost about a quarter of what they go for in england. Nice.
