Livraria Lello – The Bookshop

“Livraria Lello has housed men of arts and letters, has been the inspiration for acclaimed authors, a place for social gatherings, performances and a serene library for many of Invicta’s avid readers.” This is how Livraria Lello describes itself and we couldn’t agree more. Beatriz Maia went to the most beautiful bookstore in Porto and the world to tell you everything about it. Reed more to see how it was: Livraria Lello as we know it, opened in 1906 by the Lello brothers, men of the arts, letters and culture. Everyone who walks by Rua das Carmelitas can’t help but to be stunned by the façade of the bookshop. The façade has a neo-gothic style that is amazing by itself. The façade has a neo-gothic style that is amazing by itself. However, the façade has to share some of the attention with two amazing figures that symbolize both art and science. Recently restored, the responsible for the bookshop wanted to make sure that the façade turned out to be the closest as the 1906’s original. Walking in the Livraria Lello, we’re immediately overwhelmed by the famous staircase. This is a feeling that many can’t describe, is best for you to see […]

Mercado do Bolhão is decadent or in reconstruction?

YOURS restaurant shops in Mercado do Bolhão. Even before YOURS and as a family, we did our fruit and vegetable shopping in Mercado do Bolhão. Why? If you want to buy the freshest products, with higher diversity and a highly personalized service, Mercado do Bolhão is the best place in town. In terms of price, Mercado do Bolhão, is slighty more expensive than the average supermarket, disadvantage largely compensated in terms of quality and variety of the products, facts that in my opinion, make of Bolhão’s vegetables and fruit the best in town. The Mercado has been selling potatoes, onions and vegetables from local producers, mainly from Esposende (a city near Porto) for many years. The best thing is to do is to compare. Imagine you want chives. Why don’t you try what you get in modern supermarkets. There will be able to find one or two options. In Mercado do Bolhao you have many sellers offering a vast range of the same (seasonal) products. However, if you happen to be a regular customer, then on top of what your eyes can see, we can count on the friendly warning of the shopper “this is not for you, today sir!”. And […]

Threads and Fabrics

There is nothing better than walking tucked between threads and fabrics on a haberdashery in Porto’ city center, or spend hours on the Internet discover the latest trends from Amy Butler, the Free Spirits or Kokka. I’ve always liked buttons and “fitilhos”, English embroidery, sewing machines and “chitas” from Alcobaça. It  makes remember me to my Grandmother’s house in Redondo – Alentejo. The cool breeze felt indoors on sunny and scorching summer afternoons, the smell so characteristic of the chests opened where linen sheets and the blankets were placed, and a nice lunch in the late afternoon with homemade bread with butter and lemonade! I think the love to “create” come from my maternal grandmother who had some ideas “out of the box” for those times.  After some research, a sewing machine (a gift from my husband) and some “sewing ” experiences  offered with great affection to my friends, the challenge has been launched! What if you have more free time why not do something that makes you truly happy? This was the beginning of Yours Store – Handmade!
