Portuguese designer Vera Gama lends her name to this colorful collection of gifts, mementos and souvenirs, all of which make ideal presents for special occasions. The eye-catching T-shirts carrying vivid patterns and bold logos of famous Lisbon landmarks and Portuguese symbolism are particularly striking. Among the designs are a bright yellow streetcar, a jumping sardine and even a city cab. The traditional Barcelos cock, Portugal's national symbol, is available as a stylized cockerel of vivid patterns and is a favorite souvenir. Customers can also browse all sorts of key fobs, fridge magnets and coffee mugs. There are some wonderful dolls fashioned in different colors, and lots of prints, postcards and drawings. Despite the more contemporary design slant, the collection is complemented by a range of traditional handicrafts, most of it from southern Portugal's Alentejo province.
