Going Local: A Vida Portuguesa in Porto
Opened by former journalist Catarina Portas in 2007, the store is a celebration of all things fabricated in Portugal, from ceramics, soaps, books, bags, and linens to sardines, olive oils, and more. By partnering with established brands, Portas is helping to keep her country's traditional goods alive and relevant. If you're not planning a trip to Portugal anytime soon, the goods can also be ordered online at A Vida Portuguesa.
