Shopping in Florianopolis - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

If you are going shopping, please note that it is better to pay for goods with a card in Florianopolis. Cashless payments are available even in small tourist shops here. Of course, you can pay in cash but this is something like the national tradition of all Brazilian sellers to give less change to the buyer. You'll have to accept that. You can go for branded items from local firms and foreign manufacturers in Beiramar. Two hundred stores are open here. You can also visit Itaguaçu. It is located near the city center. This is the first shopping center in the state.

There is the most modern cinema in the city with seven halls and about two hundred shops in Iguatemi Florianópolis. You can also visit the new Floripa shopping center. About 160 stores are open here. In general, you can find products from the world's leading brands here. However, their prices are not much lower than in any other part of the world. So it may be worth focusing on stores from local manufacturers of clothing, shoes, cosmetics, and perfumes. Keep receipts until you pass customs control when buying jewelry and digital equipment.
Don't go shopping on a Sunday. Brazilians often spend this day at home with their family. Most stores in the city close after 13:00. Only those stores that are designed for tourists don’t stop working. Prices are usually high there. If you decide to buy precious stones, then do not buy them from dubious sellers, if you cannot distinguish a real gemstone from a fake.

You can also purchase a jewel separately and order a jeweler to create a unique piece of jewelry with it. If you have enough money, you can also buy ready-made products made of gold and silver in local stores. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

A lot of beautiful bijouterie is also sold here. You can find a bijouterie made of leather or wood in the Amerindian style. In general, there are many goods of Amerindian origin in the city. You should pay attention to ritual masks, bedspreads embroidered with traditional patterns, and woven rugs. Animal figures with crystals, amethysts or rose quartz are very popular. You can buy an unusual craft from butterfly wings or a mahogany amulet for good luck.
Galheta Beach Copper tableware will become a rather unusual and durable souvenir. You can give a doll in the form of an Injun or a Brazilian carnival mask to a child. A wicker beach bag will be a pretty practical souvenir. You can buy bright pareo or swimsuit. Note that local women do not like to hide their bodies. So you won't find modest, closed models here. Be sure to purchase the flips flops. This shoe is almost an attribute of the national costume here. You can go to a museum or restaurant in flip-flops. No one will judge you for looking obscene. A hammock can be another interesting souvenir.
Picturesque architectural buildings, plenty of unique monuments and museums - the choice of interesting places to visit in Florianopolis is really huge. One of the most colorful and … Open
Local vodka Cachaça will be a universal gift. However, you should not buy it in large volumes. There are restrictions on the amount of alcohol exported from Brazil. You can buy at least ten liters of Guarana soda without problems. Be sure to buy a few packages of local coffee. Do not assume that a beautiful souvenir package is an indispensable attribute of good coffee. This drink is of good quality here, even if it is sold in an inconspicuous pack for a small price. If you want, you can buy the pots, coffee machine or coffee service. Local chocolate in the form of bars or sweets is also worth attention.
Local spices will be a good purchase. However, you should not look for them in the market. You can also buy several packages of cane sugar. This type of sugar is added even to Brazilian cosmetics. Natural cosmetics like scrubs with green tea and Guarana extract, shampoos with coconut oil, and body balms with almond are quite popular here. There are many varieties of handmade soap on sale here. You can purchase a tanning product at the beginning of your vacation.
