Casa do Artesão

If you are looking to return home with a souvenir from the Amazon, the waterfront Casa do Artesão is the one-stop shop you are looking for. The state-run emporium is filled with an impressive selection of wooden crafts, textiles and other items that use feathers, shells, nuts and other surprising materials, and everything for sale is created by members of Amazonian tribes. Even if you aren't that interested in serious shopping, the displays and the knowledgeable staff at the Casa do Artesão turn a visit into an opportunity to learn about the peoples of the Amazon and their crafts. Inside tip: Bring Brazilian reals if you have them; frequently the store is unable to process credit card sales.
