Tribunales subway station, “D” Line
Buenos Aires , Argentina
54 11 4371-9070

On the platform in the subway station between Buenos Aires’s court buildings and the famous Teatro Colón, the Cartala brothers’ modest kiosk sells an inexpensive and functional reminder of the city: the traditional white oval metal address signs that adorn the local buildings. An enameled sign hand-painted with your house number runs about $17, adding the street name bumps that to $22, and the square ceramic tile variety goes for $25.

Insider Tip: If you’d like to pay your respects to the dead, Cartala also sells brass plaques like the ones you see on the mausoleums of the wealthy in Recoleta, decorated with angels, centurions, and the like. They start at $100.
