The Portuguese Life

One of my favorite stores in Lisbon is with out any question "A Vida Portuguesa ". Its one of those stores that makes you travel in time just by looking at the different objects they have!



The concept is really cool, they've recovered many of the traditional products that Portuguese people used to buy 50 or more years ago, that unfortunately started being lost with time..

But now! you know were to find them! :)


Here are some pics from my visit,


Coração, Products to clean metal and furniture.


the traditional ceramic Swallow very used for inside and outside decor






The original books used by generations of children on their first,second and third grade!



Super cute agenda from Planeta Tangerina, has amazing illustrations! could help it had to get one :)



Claus Porto!!! i already had a post about their gorgeous products






the famous Couto toothpaste created in 1932 and it was not tested in animals!
also very known by their publicity slogan “anda na boca de toda a gente” (something like is in everyones mouth)



I had a couple of them when a I was little :D


super cute plastic sewing machine and yep the needle even moves!!!


to practice your math!



trandicional tuna, sardines and squid cans.



some of their present packs, super cute!

OMG! I still remeber when I ate those Gorila. The strawberry ones were also OK.
This shop is just perfect, I also spend a lot of time there, whenever I go to Lisbon.
