.. this is a fabulous bookshop on Av. Paulista. A great location for academic, foreign travel, languages etc. Well worth a visit; for book lovers you could spend an entiure day here and why not enjoy a read over a cup of tea in their cafe on the first floor.
FNAC is a Portuguese company that specialisies in books an CD's an DVD's. There are two prominent FNAC stores in Sao Paulo, one on Av. Paulista and the other in Pinheiros. These are cool stores to visit and to relax and to unwind and to get away from the heat an humidity of Sao Paulo. As with most book shops in Sao Paulo the staff give you plenty of space, and there are plenty of places to sit down and relax. Once, we watched the whole of Toy Story 2 on a television in the kiddies section without anyone annoying us; Sao Paulo can be like that! Recommended.
Jau is one of the best places to buy shoes in São Paulo.
It is not that close (takes around 3.5 hours to get there, but the road is good and so is the scenery), but you can get quality shoes dirt cheap. There are shoe shops everywhere!
Most of the factories that export shoes are in the region and most of them have a retail shop (but, if you buy enough pairs, you can get wholesale prices).
What to buy: Any type of shoes!
I got 2 pairs already both black,will get another pair soon in brown.
All my life had only one pair of shoes at a time,so why not indulge for a change ha
What to buy: Shoes ,shoes,shoes or Zabato or calcados
What to pay: $15 or R$50 or 10 pounds. not bad heh ?
Just lots of shops and street sellers all are shouting trying to sell their goods.
What to buy: I did not buy anything,just looked
