Merced Flea market

On any saturday and sunday you could take a stroll on the east side of the Valpo's O'Higgins square facing the old mercedarian San Pedro Nolasco school, there you find one open flea market gathering antiques and old books. From time to time you could get a real discovery......
One interesting find I saw last weekend was an old german Arnold bandoneon, still playing. Of course, these are rare to find for sale anywhere because this strange instrument is the best and most looked after instrument to play tango by bandoneon players. Indeed, the bandoneon is essential to be a orquesta típica (typical tango band)
