Dutch going to Argentina / Argentines coming to Amsterdam

I was hoping that someone -- either coming from or heading for the Netherlands -- could do me the following favour:

Get me a new bombilla (metal straw for drinking mate) from Argentina. Stainless steel, spring-shaped opening.

They're ubiquitous in Argentina: literally every super market sells them. However, they're impossible to get in Europe, and I don't trust the one online store that seems to have them. You'd get my eternal gratitude in return, plus a free night's stay on my couch in downtown Amsterdam, should you need it. Plus reimbursement of the cost of course (which should be AR$15 max).

Please send me a pm if you'd be willing to run this small errand for me. Thanks!

Well, no. I just need one to replace a cheapo I bought last summer, and which has terrible rust on it.

But you're not in the Netherlands; in fact you're not even in Europe, are you?
