This trolley is carrying all sorts of antique things, from lamps, ventilators, strainers, etc. I'm still figuring out if people bring those things to the trolley guy, or if the trolley guy is selling them, by strolling in the streets. I saw it around Plaza Serrano's main square, in Palermo Viejo neighbor. Boutiques and restaurants are prominent during the day while trendy bars rule all the hours of the night. Ce charriot trimbale un tas d'antiquites tels que des lampes, ventilateurs, passoires, etc. Je ne sais toujours pas si les gens lui amenent ces brocantes ou si c'est lui qui les vend aux passants, en se baladant dans les rues. Je l'ai repere autour de la Place Serrano, dans Palermo Viejo (le vieux Palermo). Les boutiques et les restaurants sont les attractions principales pendant le jour tandis que les bars a la mode jouent un role important a toutes les heures de la nuit.

Hi Karine,

the trolley itself is an antique - just look at the wheels
