The Retrosaria das Flores

Our haberdashery is a place with a Porto soul, filled of accents and full of friendly conversations. In this small space, tips and ideas are crossed, together we share traditions of our culture of handicrafts and crafts. Here, we exchange lessons and stories are told and heard, many stories, about the street, the city, the country and other places. We welcome people from our city, from neighboring cities, from cities around the world; we teach some things ... we learn a lot! We thank everyone who visits us, who takes a little bit of being “Portuguese” to their homes and lets “experiences” from other places stay here.
