Beautiful Handcrafted Art and other Items, 100 years in business!
feb 2020
This place has excellent paintings, sculptures, other decorative items, jewelry, gems and items for kitchen and home that are hand-made by talented Brazilian artists (who have been hand-picked by the owners over decades), some of them from indigenous groups.

This is an EXCELLENT place to find local gifts for yourself or others. I have been coming here for almost 30 years (over numerous trips to Sao Paulo) and this is their 100th year in business for a good reason!

Great selection, but rude and overpriced
aug 2019 • Sólo
Let me start by saying thus place has beautiful pieces (which is why the give them 2 stars instead of 1 star). But, they sell similar pieces as a place called Projecto Terra in Batman Alley and a few others places. They price it higher, but they do have more options.

Now, for my personal experience: The concierge at my hotel (Renaissance São Paulo) suggested this place. He said the owner came in last week and asked for referrals. She said she would give discount if we told them we had been referred by the Renaissance. So, I went there.

I selected about $350 usd worth of pieces, but I mentioned to her that a couple of the same pieces were at Projecto Terra for lower price. I was not asking her for a discount on those pieces - I actually did not buy them bc I saw other things I liked. There is nothing wrong with charging a higher price when you are in a better neighborhood. But, own it. Instead, she said she called them and they charge the same amount. I was just there a couple of days earlier and I assured her they were not the same price. She then insinuated that I was lying.

Then, when I got ready to check out, she told me that they would not give me the discount that she had told the concierge they would give to hotel guests. They would give me a key chain instead. Her mother was so rude and then both of them proceeded to say that I was lying about the discount to hotel guests and that they had called the hotel and verified that I was not telling the truth. What??? I ended up leaving my stuff there and went back to the hotel. The concierge said no one called him and apologized. The hotel felt so bad about my experience that they paid transportation for me to go to a different shop where I ended up buying nearly the exact same things for $150 real cheaper (about a 10 minute walk away from this place). That shop is much smaller, but had what I needed - and she was not rude.

I think you can find similar stuff at other places who will value you as a customer. Projecto Terra and sell similar stuff and they were very nice (and a little cheaper). The selection is not as vast, but I suggest you go there first and, if you cannot find anything, then you can go here as a last resort. Of note, Projecto Terra does not take Amex, if that is a factor.

Thank you for your visit. Unfortunately we are unable to please everybody. We are happy that you find what you needed. We tried everything to help you and we never accused you of lying, always treated you kindly and with respect. After you told us the price was lower in the other shop, we matched to the same price. But as soon as you left, we called the other shop (which is from a friend of ours) and the price of the object was the same. Unless we carry a special promotion, we never offer discounts. And when we offer discounts for hotel guests, we leave a flier at the hotel with the amount discounted on it. We started in 1920, and we are the first shop ever to sell authentic handcraft from all over Brasil. Our shop offers an excelente service and even more, the best prices that are compatible with the hard work that we have to get specials crafts. We are very serious and proud of our shop, our pillars are honesty and tradition.

Must Visit! Fantastic Selection of Brazilian Arts and Handicrafts
júl 2017 • Páry
You know how hard it can be to find a special gift for yourself, family or friends when you travel? We have found the place for you in São Paulo!

With something for everyone (many things in fact) this shop is the place to go for genuine Brazilian handicrafts and works of art from throughout the vast country. Featuring beautiful, imaginative, and amusing works in wood, stone, lace, paintings, ceramics and more, including one of kind pieces, it's hard to know where to begin to shop.

Claudia, the third generation owner of this family business, greets you with warmth and provides a most informative tour of the country through the artifacts while giving you plenty of space to explore on your own and make your decisions.

Just outstanding! If you can shop just one place in São Paulo, this should be it!

No better place to purchase Brazilian folk art
okt 2016 • Páry
Claudia is fantastic as a host of this 40-year old Brazilian folk are store. I wish I had more room in my place in Dallas and build a collection of all the marvels available here. If you need something really unique to give away to a special person, for anniversaries, or a special occasion such as retirement present, don't hesitate. You'll find it here.

What a professional staff in the shop. They really took care of you by explaining paintings or other handicraft stuff in the shop. There are really many things to see but it is good because then you find something original and nice to buy for a reasonable price. We bought last year a painting and this year we returned and we left with another painting.
This is the place to visit if you want to buy an original Brazilian souvenir.

Destination place in Sao Paulo
mar 2016 • Sólo
This is a must visit place in Sao Paulo! I have been traveling to Brazil for many years now and whenever I go I always make sure to visit this amazing family business where you can see and admire amazing handcrafts from all over Brazil, and have a warm welcome from the owners who are true experts. I always save some time to spend a few hours browsing around the store and have Claudia and her adorable mother tell me the stories behind each piece that I like. A great place to visit the whole country and learn about its traditions and culture in one single stop. My house back home is surrounded by several pieces that I have brought back from Galeria! I always look forward to visit them!

I've been going here for years and return every time I am in Sao Paulo. Good prices for gifts and artwork that are truly Brazilian. The owners are the best. I just go by to say hello even if I'm not looking for anything in particular.

Truly Brasil!
jan 2016 • Sólo
Everytime I visit São Paulo I always make a point of visiting this shop. They have a great selection of authentic Brasillian artwork, crafts and wood products from the rainforest. The owner, Claudia speaks English perfectly for those of you from The US and Canada. She tells me they bring their products from all corners of Brasil from small villages to big cities. Most, if not all of their products are hand made and very high quality. I have given gifts from their shop before and they are always very well received! The staff do their best to accommodate regardless of the language barrier. The shop is located on Lorena st which is in a very upscale and SAFE neighbourhood.
Very highly recommend! I will back in 2 years during my next trip to SP. thanks Claudia! Always great!

Great Shopping Experience
okt 2015 • Páry
We stopped into Galeria Arte Brasileira on the tail end of our vacation after having visited several states in the northeast of Brasil. Claudia, the store proprietor, received us with such enthusiasm and she spoke perfect English! We chatted for a long time, and she showed us all her beautiful crafts created by artists local to all the regions throughout Brasil. We purchased a beautiful coconut necklace from Bahia for our house-sitter as a gift. We were in Salvadore, Bahia and didn't find this type of beautiful necklace when we were there, so it was a pleasure to shop in Claudia's store and see all the crafts from the different regions. It's clear that Claudia cares about the artists that she sells wares for. It's also clear that Claudia cares about her customers and her business a great deal. It was such a treat to meet her and shop in her store. This store is a "must see".
