Feira da ladra, or the ‘thieves market’, is a huge flea market that is held every tuesday and saturday at Campo de Santa Clara in Lisbon. Rumor has it that if you get robbed in the city, you can find your stolen goods here and buy them back. There’s a lot of junk here, but you can also find nice bags, clothing, jewelry, furniture and other vintage treasures. Oh, and this also where I go to find cheap batteries!
Next to the market, you also find little shops here, selling gorgeous old books (like the Jules Verne series, I’m tempted to get one just because they are so beautiful, even though my portuguese is not good enough to be able to actually read them), leather backpacks and contemporary portuguese design. (By the way, you’ve already seen this market on the blog: photo two and three in this post.)
