Best place for hand-painted souvenirs
Aug 2019
This shop is only a short walk from the central Praca do Comercio and was by far the best place we found for purchasing hand-painted tile souvenirs. It isn't large, and was a little difficult to find (we had to enter through the hotel next door), but the selection was beautiful. There was a nice range of sizes as well as prices. We enjoyed looking around, shopping, and finally deciding on a purchase. Definitely recommend stopping in here; they will ship your purchase if it's too big to carry home with you.

lovelytile shop with friendly staff--the best quality tiles we found in Lisbon.
Sep 2019
this is a very nice shop that was not terribly easy to find, but once we did we were quite happy to be there. The tiles are all hand made and far and above better than other shops. Not the least expensive, by far, but high quality. The staff were very helpful especially with shipping options.

Recommended shop!

If you are like me looking for a hand painted souvenir, this is the shop.
I prefer hand painted ones rather than some mainstream image that was printed perhaps from a computer. Make sure to ask if the souvenir that you like is hand painted or not.
Staff are amazing and super friendly. The lady didn't rush me or anything and explained which ones are printed and which ones are hand painted.

Really nice options

A little off the beaten path - which is a good thing. Options for all. Wish I would have sought this place out sooner. Much better than the ones on the "tourist" strip.

Georgeus Portuguese ceramic/pottery

We didn't have much time for shopping so head straight to where the Lonely Planet guide recommended and were very happy to find such beautiful pottery, which you could tell had much better quality that the one we saw in the turistic shops. Glad we found this place!

Wonderful shop!
Mar 2018 • Family
We were only in Lisbon for a couple of days and wanted to shop for ceramics/pottery. This store and the owners are gems! Beautifully handmade items of every size and style. This is the perfect place to find many wonderful items. Although shipping charges can be expensive, we had our purchases shipped back to the United States and everything arrived safely and within two weeks! It was well worth the added expense.

Super shop with lovely owners
Aug 2016 • Couples
This shop makes and sells bespoke azulejos and ceramics.

We didn't buy any tiles, but were entranced by the bowls by an artist from Evora and bought some.

The shop will make tiles to your specs and ship them worldwide. The owners are very friendly and give excellent customer service.

Ideal for something out of the oridinary
Mar 2016 • Solo
If you're going to bring something home from Portugal that fits in a suitcase, go for the tiles and ceramics. I visited LdD on a weekday morning and had the place to myself. You can find anything between 10 and 600 Euro depending on size and complexity of the piece. The repertoire of images wasn't hugely varied but they had lots of fish, which is what I wanted. Quality is very much higher than the typical gift shop, and of course, so is the price, though it is not outrageous. Worth it for me. The older couple running the place were very nice, took their time to explain everything and wrapped up the items beautifully. This was exactly what I was looking for and now I can't wait to get back and decorate my kitchen.
