Vou de férias a lisboa em julho, e eu perguntei-me se há qualquer feiras de artesanato ou mercados que posso ir a achar tecido?

Traduzi este online de inglês a portugues, eu estou muito pesaroso se é terrível. Tento de aprender portugues, mas até agora eu só sei algumas coisas.

muito obrigados!

I am going on vacation to lisbon in july, and i wanted to try to find some fabric for souveneers. can anyone help? are there any textile markets or fabric shops that have great things? Please let me know! thanks!

Hi!
Well, the tool you used to translate your text is great!
I live near Lisbon and what bequitas said is a good idea. You also have the Feira dos Tecidos in Baixa/Chiado (or Rossio) <-- subway stops, both of them, it's a very good shop to search for good fabric.
I wish you had ask for some yarn shops Smiley

ah but no! i'm afraid knitting is very confusing to me! perhaps i will try to learn again. i will try the feria dos tecidos, and the other ones too. my friend and i are going to be there for two weeks! i think we'll also spend some quality time in bairro Alto? but from what i've read that not a neighborhood for crafting!

: D

thanks!

Bairro Alto..! I hope I can see you there! It's a place where people (mostly students) go to drink and talk, on the streets, very old streets, with old houses too. It's an unique place, I tell you. And don't be scared, we portuguese are very nice and friendly with tourists!
In Bairro Alto, on a monday, search for "Tasca do Chico", it's a place with amateur Fado, quite cheap and you can eat good food and listen to our Fado Smiley I can't remember the name of the street, though, but it's on Bairro Alto.
Alfama is near Bairro Alto and you can find some good "retrosarias" - stores that sell buttons, notions and so, I don't know how you call them. And it's very nice to walk on those old and full of history streets.
Well, if you need anything, stop by the Faculty of Sciences in Campo Grande, search for the department of Geology and I'll be in the 6.3.69 lab Smiley

ah! one thing i would like to know is what is the fasion? the style? I would like to look as much like a native as possible, but of course my pasty white skin will be a dead givaway, and then add to it my complete lack of portuguse; other than "nao falo muito portugues" and Cerveza fas favor!

i would like to blend in as much as possible, so- what's the style? for instance, if i walked around paris or milan in jeans and sneakers, my style would not be appreciated. how is it in portugal? my friend sofia is super laid back, casual and all. is that typical? or is that because she teaches teenagers? here in the states, we are casual. only in the cities are there real fashionistas.
is that so in portugal?

Cerveja se faz favor, ihihihihihih! Be careful, our beer is quite stronger than yours!  Tourists get drunk really fast here Wink
About the fashion... well, like in all european countries, i guess, we have all kinds of looks.. If you were a gothic at a small village, people would notice you.. At Lisbon we have all kind of styles.. Gothic, punk, glam, "tia" e "beta" <-- have no idea how to translate this, hippie, casual..
I wear jeans, sneakers and t-shirts most of the days... Smiley Dont you worry about that!
Don't forget to bring your bathing suit! The beach is about 20 min away from Lisbon (in train/bus). And if you can, visit Sintra, it's about 30 min in the train, the ticket is very cheap and it's simply amazing..

hey carina! will i need an I.D.?

i was thinking that i haven't yet lost my passport, and so that's pushing my luck. my friend sofia is here in the us, from lisbon, and she usually just carries around her portugues Identification- that must be like an american drivers license. we use our Licenses for all purpose ID's. but since we have the somewhat strict drinking and smoking ages, we really have to carry our licenses all the time, even if we're not driving.  Sometimes sofia's Portuguese ID is ok at the door, but then other times it's not (it depend's on the mood of the bouncer, which i suppose is universal).

 But do you think i'll just be able to use my State driver's license; so i won't have to cart around the passport all the time?

Hummm.. I really have no idea, but sometimes, when we don't have our ID for some reason (lost it, or something), we can use our drivers licence. So I guess you can too Smiley
I must tell you, IT'S VERY HOT HERE!!! Summer's here, so bring light summer clothing.. and your bathing suit Wink

Worry not for I am Portuguese as they come and I am so white I am bordering transparency. That will not be a problem. You can wear pretty much anything anywhere, people sometimes stare at goths and that but I think it's "normal". We are also very casual but quite colorful these days. And teenagers NEVER give up their sneakers for anything in this world. I no longer qualify as a teen,neither do my friends but we never give them up either.
Have fun, be careful with the alcohol (it IS strong) and if you're coming in from July to September do wear sunscreen and drink lots of water. Cheesy

blasfemme!

i visited in july of 2005. I horned in on my friend's family home. i was pleased by the casual style. though it was so hot and we wore jeans all the time, that was different, because in america when it is hot, people wear shorts- a lot of shorts on children and adults. though i guess sofia's dad wore shorts. the rest of us did not. next time i go, (i'm hoping ot figure out a way to score a cheap flight this summer again) i'm going to pack a couple of cute skirts to wear. and i've already been shopping for shoes.

the other day i tried to duplicate Portuguese breakfast- what i fondly remember sofia's family having the day i arrived. but a person can't find spreadable camembert in the US. go figure, a "french" chese is one of my great loves of portugal, but even in my town with a long portuguese heritage, it's hard to find good bread. mmmm and the dense corn bread is impossible to find. i can get chorizo and use parma ham for the meat part. and i've learned how to make a passable bica.

i can't wait to return, (I think i'll go look at flight prices again right now!) i've even taken some portuguese lessons, though, eu somente falo um pequeno portuguese. um pequeno.

ciao!

I love the french spreadable cheese as well, cannot imagine it not existing in America! Which town do you live in, by the way?
I love corn bread, it's one of my favorite things to eat.
Yeah we do wear mostly jeans most of the time all year round lol cannot say why, but we do.
I'm glad you liked Portugal Smiley

I know this is a pretty old thread, but I'd like to know where the nice yarn shops are in Lisbon.   I'll be going there in two weeks with my Portuguese husband and his grandmother.  I can not wait to get there!
