Vintage Finds in Plaza de Armas
To the untrained eye, it often seems like all of Havana is an antique shop. Why is it so hard, then, to find vintage goods? If you’re looking for books, posters, pins, photos or other memorabilia from the revolutionary era or earlier, head to Plaza de Armas in Old Havana, where vendors set up daily and ply their retro wares. Here you can buy letters, photo albums, hard-to-find books, coins and all other manner of collectibles—and remember that all of the prices can be haggled over.
