While much of the Bazaar caters to tourists, there are hidden jewels aplenty, and finding them is part of the fun. Istanbul is an excellent venue to appreciate the breadth of Turkish craftsmanship.
Consider investing in a pair of old kilim-turned-pillows and a quartz pomegranate, a good luck symbol seen in almost every Turkish home. Also, don’t be scared to venture outside of the main bazaar.
