A Vida Portuguesa
Lisbon's most fascinating shopping experience awaits at A Vida Portuguesa, which has nearly single-handedly resurrected some of the country most iconic "Made in Portugal" products. From Art Deco-labeled retro soaps to artisan olive oils to Bordallo Pinheiro's famous ceramic swallows, there is a grand total of nothing here that hasn't been meticulously curated by the owner, a former journalist whose eye for immensely cool is distinctly spot on. The shop looks like an old fashioned pharmacy and stocks a jumble of what were once everyday goods which are manufactured nowadays with the same unique design from the past century. Even if you're not buying, it's worth a look as a living piece of anthropology.
