Lisbon & Portuguese Souvenirs

Whilst exploring Lisbon’s Alfama district Nic and I stumbled over Time 2 Give a design shop selling Portugal souvenirs with a twang. The owner, Luiz, we met again at the LX factory the day after and Julia, using her excellent meeting people skills got talking to him. Exploring the idea of having our own pop up shop for the event at the end of the project, we got lots and lots of helpful tips on nice design products and Portuguese designers and got to know what products sell best. So, here the most interesting products and where they are sourced from. It’s definitely worth a visit to browse and meet the rather welcoming owner Luiz!

For anyone wondering where Time2Give is situated: Calçada do Cascão, nº 6, Lisboa. Check out my Lisbon Crafts Shop Map.
