In a small alley on the streets of Porto you find this lovely shop. As you enter, it seems to be transported back in time. Old photographs, postcards, old tiles of the town, grandma’s clothing, old corset, furniture, flowers, pots, pans and dishes “from the past”. On the counter, a lot of rings, earrings, bracelets and various memorabilia. A fantastic collection of vintage frames, especially sunglasses, mostly designers’. Everything is messy ordered on tables and shelves. The attention to detail and the careful restoration of objects – made with great patience and attention – is clearly evident. This is the motto of Projecto Alecrim: renovar, reduzir, reciclar, reusar.
