A lovely shop
"I had already been told that I would love A Vida Portuguesa (Rua Anchieta 11, avidaportuguesa.com). Its walls are lined with soaps, oils, toothpastes, petroleum jelly in retro boxes and store cupboard staples such as Zelly's flour. Run by Portuguese journalist Catarina Portas, this shop is lovely. I walked out with armfuls of Zelly products, as well as a sardine grill for the barbecue, a stunning, iridescent ceramic sardine, tins of sardines, a stove-top toast maker, bright orange and red melamine plates and piles of Couto toothpaste and petroleum jelly in bright orange and black boxes."
