La Vereda

Arts & Crafts in Santa Teresa & Lapa

La Vareda stocks a colorful selection of handicrafts from local artists and artisans in a spot near Largo do Guimarães. Handpainted clay figurines by Pernambuco artists, heavy Minas ceramics, delicate sterling-silver jewelry and loosely woven tapestries cover the interior of the old store.

Other cool gift ideas: T-shirts bearing a bonde (streetcar) image, block prints by local artist Erivaldo and vibrant arte naïf canvases by various Santa Teresa artists. There are several other handicraft shops and galleries on this street.
