Vintage shopping in Montevideo

I will be on Montevideo in a couple of weeks time for a few days and wonder if anyone can tell me if there are some great vintage shops anywhere in the city please?

Visit the Tristán Narvaja Street Market (Feria de Tristán Narvaja), which takes place every Sunday in Montevideo in the middle of the Cordón neighborhood on Tristán Narvaja Street.

Thanks so much for your info! I checked out both your blogspot & the video. My partner will love the military memorabilia. We may be there during the week tho, does the market operate on other days do you know? Or is there a particular area of town we might visit to see a range of shops that do vintage jewelry, clothing, memorabilia etc? Or is it like a lot of the rest of Sth America where one doesn't see 2nd hand shops like in the west. Greatly appreciate your views & advice.
