Jardins  is home to numerous antiques stores. One of the city’s oldest and most respected dealers is Nóbrega (Rua Padre João Miguel 1231, Jardim Paulista, tel. 11/3068-9388, www.nobrega1935.com.br , 9:30 a.m.–7 p.m. Mon.–Fri., 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Sat.). Aside from an impressive antiques collection, a gallery space displays modern and contemporary Brazilian art.
A classic Sunday afternoon activity is to browse through the small but colorful selection of antiques and collectibles on display at the Feira de Antiguidades do MASP (Av. Paulista 1578, Cerqueira César, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Sun.), which takes place beneath the Museu de Arte de São Paulo ’s suspended structure.
Also lots of fun is the Feira de Antiguidades e Artes (Praça Benedito Calixto, Pinheiros, www.pracabeneditocalixto.com.br , 9 a.m.–7 p.m. Sat.). where you’ll find a colorful collection of bric-a-brac of varying quality. Held in a pretty square, the market itself—with lots of food and drink kiosks—is a gathering place for a young and alternative crowd.
