We’re not ones to give a nod to a clearly tourist-focused shop, but if you’re going to bring something home for souvenirs, skip the No. 28 trolley teeshirts and cheap Ronaldo jerseys and do it right. On a side nook in Chiado, if only to browse for ideas, this beautifully curated shop was established to preserve and promote antique articles that are truly Portuguese. Pick up a copper pot, a bar of lavender soap, a wall-hanging of a swallow in flight, or even a cork messenger bag, and though it will most likely cost you a pretty penny, it will be well worth it. Just wandering from room to meticulously organized room makes you feel like you are in some sort of product museum. If you didn’t really GET the “Portuguese Life” before, perhaps that’s the most lasting souvenir you take with you when you exit, empty-handed or no.
