The past blends with the present in this particular store ... lose yourself in it and find your item!
Vintage is in. In troubled times, it is comforting to look back in time. This may well explain the success of A vida portuguesa (Rua Anchietta, 11), one of the most famous shops in Lisbon since it opened a few years ago. The shop sells typical Portuguese products but always with a retro feel. For example, traditional sardine cans have been (re) designed by young artists by mixing past and modernity in their colourful and cheerful packaging. Forget the famous Portuguese tablecloths and let yourself be tempted by its cosmetics and cleaning products, which are absolutely ecological and environmentally friendly. Even if you don't feel like buying, pay it a visit to experience a grocery store of the 40s or 50s. Of course, the venue's soundtrack is ad hoc and sweet and soft fados are always on the air.
