Today I went shopping for tea, coffee, sheets and other wonderful Portuguese things. Along the way I photographed the Retrosarias selling small stuff for clothing like buttons, thread etc. Straight after I saw there is actually a free expo on the enormous amount of beautiful stores that Lisbon has.
Discover and most importantly.. buy from them. Avoid cheap souvenir stores, no Portuguese I know ever bought there. I also ordered two engraved plaquettes from Anibal Gravador, one bronze, one metal. Best smile and service ever although at first she couldn't let go of the book she was reading. That was worth waiting for.
Superb site too:
