Thrift shopping in Lisbon

I love the idea of buying clothing items as souvenirs whenever I visit new places. Most of the time, they have nothing to do with the place itself, but there's automatically a story behind it for me and I get to re-live a little bit of that holiday mood every time I wear these things.

I found this yellow top from a regular Humana store in Lisbon last month. All tags are cut out, so I have no idea what the material or brand name is, but I can't get over the color! I actually feel like I bought some Portugese sunshine for 5€ and brought it home with me. I will forever remember how it matched the Azulejo and channel my inner Lisboeta when I wear this pretty thing. Not that I'm much of a fashion expert, but I also feel like this color has been everywhere lately, so I don't know why anyone would want to get rid of it. Thank you, stranger! 

As for advice on thrift shopping in Lisbon, I totally recommend Humana. I didn't like the one directly in the downtown shopping area as much, but the ones further away were awesome. I couldn't find a reliable source, but saw somewhere that the Humana stores in Portugal support educational projects in third world countries or something like that, so if that's true, there's all the more reason to like!
