If you like azulejos, this is “the” place to buy some customized tiles to take home. They can ship everywhere in the world but the shipping cost are too high if you want to buy a single 15cmx15cm. For a hand painted tile of such size, we were asked 17 € for the tile and 16,50 € for the shipping from Lisbon to Italy. So we buy a uncustomized tile.
Closed on Sundays and sat. afternoon
What to buy: whatever you like which can be made in ceramic.

A great shop centrally located that sells a wide range of wine, spirits and Port. They also have free tastings and we were able to taste a vintage port here.
The women that work in the shop speak English and are very knowledgeable and helpful. They recommended some great wine that was still cheap, but of good quality.
What to buy: Wine, Port and spirits.
We stocked up on wine for the trip here.
What to pay: from around 3 euros for a bottle of wine.
Pingo Doce is a supermarket chain in Portugal and they have shops in many places in Lisbon. The branch in Rua 1 Dezembro, one street west of Rossio, is particularly useful given its central location and it's a good place for stocking up on picnic supplies or portugese wine.
Ok, so myabe for all of you living in some nice cosmopolitan cities don't care, but here in Lisbon we didn't have a proper cinema shop!! Everytime i wento to Barcelona or other big city i would spend loads of time checking out the movie posters... But know i can buy my friends some cool t-shirts with references to their favourtite movies right here in my town!! I'm happy!!! :D
The best area to go shopping in is la ?Baixa? (downtown) comprises the Rossio, the Augusta street and its transversal streets, the recently renewed Chiado and the Liberdade (Freedom) Avenue.
Shopping centres are almost everywhere in the city. The bigger & most populars are: Colombo, Vasco da Gama, Amoreiras and El Corte Ingl?s.
This huge fleamarket is in the Alfama between the Church of St. Clara and the National Pantheon.
It is held twice a week on Tuesdays and Sundays from early in the morning until ???
What to buy: .
You can find just about anything here - from antiques to clothes to watches, cellphones and cameras. You might even find your stolen camera here...... (the name "Feira da Ladra" means "Market of the Thief"!!!)
After our tiring day climbing the mountains of Sintra as well as the steep hill in Alfama leading up to Castelo de Sao Jorge, it was a relief to be in the shaded and flat Baixa area of Lisbon!
This whole area, rebuilt after the great earthquake of 1755, is an amazing collection of shops, boutiques, open air cafes and restaurants. Many streets in this part of Lisbon have pedestrian traffic only, so you can walk down the middle of the beautiful old streets without worry as you enjoy your surroundings (notice the polish put on those old pavement stones by all the foot traffic!). It was in this area that we sat down outside for some cold refreshment after our earlier exertions!
Here, we are about to emerge from the shopping area, through the triumphal arch completed in 1873, into the Praca do Comercio - a very impressive square along the Tejo River waterfront.
Near praca municipio, heading towards Belem, you can find several tiny shops selling several types of dry salted (?) fish... cod obviously (bacalao) but other types of fish, too - including tuna. Here's an idea for a different souvenir
What to buy: dry fish - bacalao, tuna, or any other fish
What to pay: from a couple of euros per kilo, and up
This local laundromat was located close to our hostel and by the end of our trip, both Pav and I had run out of clean clothes. For the sake of whoever was sitting next to us on the plane ride home, we decided to take an outfit in for cleaning. They did the job in about 2 hours and had our clothes smelling great on the airplane.
Lisbon it's just another european city. If you are a shopping addict you have several malls, some with 1.000 shops and 10 cinemas in the same building....
What to buy: Nothing special....Well, clothes are not expensive. Tabacco and alcool also are not expensive. Enjoy the food that money may buy!
What to pay: Depends....
