Journalist and media-mogul, Catarina Portas, identified a gap in the market for a shop dedicated to the sale of nostalgic Portuguese arts, crafts and brands. The first A Vida Portuguesa shop opened in June 2007 in the heart of the Chiado neighbourhood. Occupying an old perfume warehouse (David & David) in the trendy Chiado district, this gem of a store has ensured the survival of many a Portuguese tradition, proving that it is possible to open new stores while fully preserving historic interiors.

A vintage shop dedicated to traditional Portuguese products

Here you will find over 1,000 originally packaged products including candy, tea, coffee, sardine tins, biscuits, soaps, pencils, mugs, jewelry, toothpaste, ceramics from the Bordalo Pinheiro Factory and traditional woollen blankets from Alentejo.

In 2009, A Vida Portuguesa was selected as one of the 10 most original shops in town by Time Out Lisbon.
