Vintage Eva Perón Pin Tray

 It was a "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" moment to be sure.  On a lovely Sunday morning visit to a flea market just outside of Buenos Aires, we were feeling a little bleary-eyed and, well...emotional.  For those of you who haven't had the chance to visit the beautiful country of Argentina yet, be forewarned: every night will be a late night.  No matter what your intentions may be, in a country that considers 10 pm as an early dinner hour, there is no hope in getting a full night's sleep.

Perhaps it was the lack of sleep then...or perhaps it was the fact that we had visited Eva Perón's tomb in the amazing Recoleta cemetery only the day before.  Whatever the case, when we stumbled on a collection of Eva Perón memorabilia, you would have thought we had found the Holy Grail. I'm not embarrassed to admit that a few tears were shed, a few Argentine pesos were spent and a few lovely milk glass Eva Perón Pin Trays made their way back to Chicago with us. 

"Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance..."
