Pátio do Tijolo, Nr. 16, 1250- 096
Pelcor’s eco- friendly golf bag is made from Portugal’s largest export material, cork. Sustainable harvesting means trees age for 25 years before the nine-year harvest cycle begins. Trendy and innovative products infuse sustainability with fashion. (We love the umbrellas and the totes.) How’s that for a hole in one?
Rua Augusta, 93, 1100- 052
A chic boutique with a unique selection of sloganed and designer T-shirts (see: Cod Eaters Since 1147, LISBOA, Mui Nobre Sempre Leal) can be found at at Typpgraphia on Rua Augusta. Made in Portugal from high quality cotton and water- based inks. There’s nothing that screams“souvenir” here. Buy as a gift for a loved one. Talk about a statement piece.
Praça do Principe Real 26, 1250-184
Yearning for something different? Check out the Embaixada in the trendy district of Principe Real. The place to go shopping in Lisbon for a curated selection of Portuguese designer goods. Housed in a former Moorish palace.
Rua Rodrigues de Faria 103, 1300-501
An old factory converted into unusual artisan shops, cafés and restaurants. A lively, funky place to spend a few hours shopping. The interesting graffiti on the walls ads to the experience. One of our favourite is the Ler Devagar bookshop complete with flying bicycle. Don’t miss the best chocolate cake ever at Landeau.
Rua Serpa Pinto 15B, 1200-443
Unique and interesting high design destination in the fashionable Chiado district of Lisbon.

Head to Loja das Conservas for an astonishing array of Portuguese tinned fish. Cod, eel, octopus, squid and mackerel. Skinless, boneless, in vegetable or olive oil, plain or with tomato sauce.

A cabbage cereal bowl – yes, you read it right –functional and decorative pieces inspired by local traditions. Traditional Portuguese pottery of Bordello Pinheiro. There’s even a section on sardines.
