Remate Semenal: Antiques Auction - Market Montevideo - Uruguay

The auction at Remate Semenal is a vignette into the antique age of Ciudad Vieja. Sift through the treasure trove of chairs, tables, hutches and dressers, or come for the bidding war every Thursday for a chance to buy the items (assuming you have the means and motive to ship your prize back to the mother country). Even if dusty furniture isn’t your calling card, the novelty of this weekly local event, complete with overzealous antique collecters collectors and a dizzyingly fast Spanish-speaking auctioneer, is a sight to see.
