  1. A great post. I really like your blog! I am leaving Portugal very soon 😦 and this list is helping me decide what I should buy before I go. Do you know where I could get nice ceramics plates etc… that could ship abroad?

    1. Hi Clare: We’re glad you have found our blog useful! For porcelain plates, etc. Vista Alegre is the place to go. You can find more information on the blog. For artisanal pottery you might want to check out Viúva Lamego at Largo do Intendente n.º 25. We will blog about it soon!

      Another great gift is a cataplana (more about it here, http://bit.ly/1c0gqRb).

      If you go to the wonderful Reverso jewelry store, please tell Paula Crespo we said hello.
