Welcome back to Expat in Lisbon and if you’re wondering where to snag some handmade Portuguese artisan goods you’ve come to the right place! There are many knick-knack and kitsch stores sprinkled around Lisbon selling all sorts of stuff to tourists and locals alike. Most of it is made in China. However, if you want some real Portuguese made handicrafts and original pieces, read on!
First up is Loja PortugueZa da Baixa on Rua dos Fanqueiros 32.
My favorite thing about this store is the costume! Here you can buy soaps, postcards, canned sardines, corks, and other items, but I won’t ruin the surprise!
Another favorite artisan shop of mine is Silva & Feijo on Rua dos Bacalhoeiros 117. The selection here is a little more extensive and includes Porto and Portuguese wines, more cork products and wooden products, sausages, sardines, and olive oils.
Of course a post like this would not be complete without a trip to the famous Conserveira de Lisboa on Rua dos Bacalhoeiros 34. Estabished in 1930, the Conserveira de Lisboa sells canned food under the brands Tricana, Prata do Mar, and Minor.
And last but not least we come to the “Supermarket of Portuguese Artisan Shops” if there ever was such a thing. A Vida Portuguesa has an amazing store in the Chiado stockpiled with amazing goods from all over the countryside. It’s located on Rua Anchieta 11.
They even have a small book section! So I won’t ruin the surprise of the inside for you, but let me tell you it’s worth the visit, along with all the other stores mentioned in this post. So check them out when you’re here! And remember, Lisboa Espera Por Ti.
