    Adega Durigan winery: shopping wines and gourmet items

    by gwened Written Jul 8, 2013

    This is a traditional family shop in the Santa Felicidade district of Curitiba, Paranà state. The area is the old little Italy loaded with historical family businesses.

    My favorite is the Durigan winery, great local wines for souvenirs,and nice quaint items to bring home;history since 1878.
    The Durigan family arrive in Brazil around 1845 from Treviso ,Italy.

    open Mondays to Saturdays from 08h to 22h and Sundays from 8h to 20h

    nice beautiful place

    What to buy: wines is my stop here,not the top of Brazil but for the history and niceness of the place and people is worth it.

    What to pay: very good prices as from the source, but the unique thing is the product not the price.

    Beach vendors.

    by cachaseiro Updated Nov 6, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When sitting on a big city beach you will have vendors walking up and down the beach all the time selling mostly food and drink.
    I find that quite nice as you don´t really have to leave the beach in order to get a snack.
    These people will sell anything from nuts to fresh oysters.
    And if you support their little business then you are also supporting someone who normally does not make much money.

    What to buy: Mostly food and drink, but sometimes other stuff too like jewellery and music.

    Buy music

    by cachaseiro Updated Nov 6, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Music is such a big part of a Brazil trip as you constantly hear it and brazilian music is damn catchy.
    CD´s can easily be bought from guys walking around the streets with little wagons with speakers on.
    The cd´s are mostly pirate copies, but they will usually let you listen to it first before you purchase it.

    What to buy: Brazilian music.

    Get a portrait of yourself.

    by cachaseiro Updated Nov 6, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I came across some very talented artists in various parts of Brazil who painted portraits at prices that were extremely low compared to europe.
    If you ever thought of having a portrait done Brazil could be the right place to get it.

    What to pay: This is a matter of negotiation, but the prices are low.

    by cachaseiro Updated Nov 6, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Throughout Brazil you have lot's of good markets where you can buy handmade crafts.
    Most of it is not made for tourists, but that just makes it more authentic.
    If you buy it you will get a good souvenier and also help the local economy.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Why don't you buy a phonebox and donate it to your hometown?

    Bazar Som Tres: Best Record Shop in Salvador

    by ragagli Updated Apr 5, 2009

    For fans of Brazilian music and vinyl, Bazar Som Tres is the best place I found in Brazil. Sure you can find some record shops in touristy areas, but the selection is limited and the prices are super high. Bazar Som Tres is not in a touristy area. To get there you have to exit the Pelorinho and walk down Ave. Jose Joaquim Seabra, where all the cheap shops are, all the way to the end by the bus terminal. Then you go up some stairs. Look for it to the right. It's a tiny shop but other shopkeepers will know it if you ask them.

    Bazar Som Tres is smaller than my bedroom but they have everything! There are records everywhere. Haniel, the owner, let me play at least 100 records. He was nice enough to pull out some things he thought I would like. I made a real mess there. I ended up buying 20 records from them--some classic MPB (Caetano, Jorge Ben, Gal Costa), some classic samba (Jose Silva, Elza Soares, Clara Nunes), some classic Batucada stuff, and more! It's overwhelming. I can't say enough about this place. I'm going back to buy more records next time I go, so don't clean Haniel out!

    What to buy: Brazilian records

    What to pay: Most records are R$10

    Lido Quilt: Quilt Store in Niteroi

    by ladysail Written Jul 18, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop owners are very friendly, they speak English, are very helpful. The store is clean, well laid out, and has a very friendly atmosphere.

    It is easily found from the ferry landing in Niteroi. I would have walked the distance, but didn't have alot of time...so I took a cab. It wasn't much in fare. Try to have exact change.

    What to buy: You can buy cotton fabrics suitable for sewing and for making quilting projects. They have a nice array of the usual premuim cottons and fabrics made in Brazil. I didn't see any Brazilian themed fabrics. That was a little disappointing, but didn't detract from my thrill at being there.

    What to pay: The fabrics are very reasonable, about $9US equivalent. That is reasonable for a Canadian where we pay upwards of $20 for a meter of good quality fabric.

    FORTALEZA : HAMMOCKS

    by swesn Written Nov 28, 2006

    Frankly, hammocks can be bought anywhere in Brazil, especially as one heads north.

    But the best place to buy them is Fortaleza - the birthplace of hammocks.

    If you are heading that way and you get really tempted by the lovely designs, hold onto to your desires until you get to Fortaleza and even then, get it from Mercado Central (Central Market).

    This is a huge local market with several stories selling everything. Make your way around the Central Market and hunt for the best designs and bargain for the best prices. There are also many stores in the surrounding area near the Central Market that sell hammocks for really fair prices.

    Earlier on in my trip, everyone told me I could get a hammock for R30 (less than US$14), more or less... which was quite a good price. But here, I managed to buy one (albeit, a simple one for the riverboat ride down the Amazon) for R15 (US$7) and I later saw the same ones priced at R11 (US$5) outside the Central Market.

    PARATI : ARTISTS' GALLERIES

    by swesn Written Nov 27, 2006

    As you first start walking down the streets of Parati, you will definitely come across many, many souvenir stores selling what are to me... very tacky souvenirs with T-shirts declaring Parati (yucks), displays made from coconut-shells and sea-shells (double yucks). Endless...

    There are very nice locally-produced handicrafts like hammocks and couch throws as well. These are worth it to take a look.

    But press on, and you will soon come upon delightful little artists' galleries. Some of them make crafts like mirror-frames, lamp-shades... really artistic ones, I thoroughly love them!!! I tell myself that if ever I need to go furniture-shopping for my apartment... I will come to Parati!

    Others showcase exquisite paintings, you have to browse to find the paintings that speak to you. Or speak to the artists!

    I met Aecio Sarti, an amazing artist with a superb personality. I was very fascinated by his works and my conversations with him truly touched and humbled. Check out his website: http://3wb.com.br/atelierparaty/aeciosarti/aecioindex.htm

    RIO DE JANEIRO: MERCADO POPULAR URUGUAINA

    by swesn Written Nov 27, 2006

    This is a huge market for the locals.

    As it is away from the tourist crowd, if you need that Brazilian football jersey, extra beach towel, a bikini or two, coconut-shell-and-bead type of trinkets, CDs to save your digital photos, flip-flips, extra bag, etc... here is the place to get them as they are much cheaper than found in the main city centre.

    There are several sections radiating out, with goods of various type more or less organised.

    As it is crowded, with lots of boxes of goods to trip over, it is recommended that you watch your things carefully.

    What to buy: Brazilian football jersey, extra beach towel, a bikini or two, coconut-shell-and-bead type of trinkets, CDs to save your digital photos, flip-flips, extra bag, etc...
