Antiques, second hand clothes, vinyls, furniture, crafts and a long list of other items. A cabinet of wonders at affordable prices throughout the day.
The Benedito Calixto Antiques Fair, which is celebrated every Saturday in Benedito Calixto Square, is the perfect place to buy objects that are otherwise impossible to find anywhere else except amongst its 320 exhibitor stands. It is advisable to arrive early (open 09:00 to 19:00) because it gets busy around midday, the plaza fills up. The tradition of buying-selling antiques, decorative objects, crafts, furniture and works of art here goes back to the 1980s, when the hippies of São Paulo would gather here to discuss poetry and paintings amongst street stalls. Today you can also find second-hand clothes stalls and even stalls which cell vinyl records. When the afternoon comes around, while you rest after a morning of shopping and walking around the square, you can enjoy a cold beer on the terraces, while music groups end the day with popular Brazilian music sessions.
