I don't know if they manage to make money, but it's very creative, odd and even funny. They sell sardine stylised cans like souvenirs for 7 euros. If you're at Rossio Square (Praça Rossio), you might stop for a minute and maybe take a picture...More

Although I think €7 for a tin of sardines is expensive, I am so glad that we went to visit this store. It is something different and unusual and it provides a nice gift or souvenir from your trip to Lisbon.
