Commerce reinventing itself

A second-hand store guide (Porto)

Portugal’s second city hosts an abundance of second-hand stores of the most varied types. Even though book stores predominate, there are also antique and similar stores specialising in collectors items and furniture whilst the prices in effect are beyond the reach of regular consumers. On occasion, this may damage one of the factors key to this guide, the recycling of products as a means to ensuring greater sustainability, but does nevertheless enable the discovery of rare and very high quality items.

In Porto, the leading place for browsing for second-hand items is undoubtedly the Vandoma Fair taking place every Saturday morning in the Fontaínhas neighbourhood. Leave the car behind and capitalise on the good public transport across the full extent of Porto. Or, better still, take the time to stroll this city while looking over our following suggestions.
