Lately, we haven’t been able to update as much as we wanted, but at least we have organised all our travel files and we have our Lisbon trip arranged to share it right now!
Ready for an amazing starter that will blow you away?! Welcome to one of the most popular Portugal’s flea markets! Not a pickpockets dealing place as its name originally defined it, but a nice spot to find all those treasures that make us go completely crazy. On Tuesdays and Saturdays from 6am to nearly 5pm you can get yourself lost between vintage clothes, old radios, terrific cameras, a great range of local pottery and all kind of curiosities.
Have you got your big tote bag ready and your purse full of coins?!! Then let’s start! Enjoy the walk under the sun:) Don’t forget to spot the retro jewelry, the perfect home deco suitcases, the victorian style dinner services and the must-take antique tiles (be careful with the very old ones because many have been stolen from original buildings and its not a very nice idea to contribute with this:S)
Besides, around the market you can find many antique shops with wonderful collection pieces, the problem is prices raise up considerably. So if you don’t want to spend too much, trust your intuition, buy cheap and give your acquisitions a new lease of life at home!
Feira da Ladra is in Alfama, one of the oldest parts of the city full of tiny streets , little shops and delicious wine bars and restaurants. The flea market is behind São Vicente de Fora church and you can arrive there in cable car or if you have some time we strongly recommend you to go walking and discover the beautiful roof views of the city.
In Feira da Ladra we got an original lettuce flower pot, two pottery wall blue stars ad a couple of green jars to decorate our merchanders place with fresh flowers. Next post we will show you some of these and more pictures of Lisbon’s delicious gastronomy, cool streetart, magic surroundings (Guincho beach is something we cannot stop thinking about!) and the essential must-see aquarium🙂
And you, what’s your favourite spot in Lisbon?! We would be very happy to go back, so if you have any suggestions, please share them with us!
