Typical local items

    What to buy in Spain and Portugal that is authentic and local and of good quality is a question many foreign visitors ask. We agree with the view of several Internet forums that it is better to buy one quality thing than to buy many cheap items that are not even made here. We are used to travel across the Iberian Peninsula looking for "the real thing" in all fields: leather, basketry, ceramics, jewellery, etc. We visit the artisans and the factories that make all the things we sell in this online store. We check all products to make sure they are of good quality. And, of course, we always look for nice typical local things you can only find in Spain and Portugal.
