Sliding through the glass entrance into the cool, cavernous front gallery of Wussmann is a welcome escape from this noisy, working-class section of San Telmo. This beautifully restored building is distinctive of the local antique style, and the shop in the back of the large space further recalls another time with old-fashioned hand stamps, stacks of paper and envelopes, and small, handmade books. Take a look at the impressive collection in the wine cellar turned art library before rifling through the drawers in the floor-to-ceiling cabinet that is stuffed with boxes, notepads, and stationary. Another branch of Wussmann is located in an upscale section of Recoleta, and has similar offerings on a smaller scale. See website for more information.
