Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

Not as much as compared with other posts. The main things we purchase for gifts include coffee, wine, simple woven textiles, and music. On other islands such as Sao Vicente (the cultural heart of Cabo Verde where Cesaria Evora is from) you can find artwork by famous artists and some unique handicrafts. - Oct 30, 2016
