One of the best shops for purchasing ceramics or Ottoman mosaic lamps.

We were in Turkey for 17 days, and for the first week we had a hotel near the Sirkeci and Gülhane stations. We soon decided we would probably get some mosaic ottoman lamps, and... read more

We were in Turkey for 17 days, and for the first week we had a hotel near the Sirkeci and Gülhane stations. We soon decided we would probably get some mosaic ottoman lamps, and perhaps a few tiles, so on several days we stopped in the stores that were selling these sorts of items, and we also checked the Internet...

I went this shop twice and the first time I asked several products without purchasing anything. The patient staff show me what I asked and with smile from start to the end.

I shopped here quickly knowing already that I wanted ceramics. The shop owner was not pushy and left me to my own device choosing. He gave a discount when I bought a few items so don't be shy to ask. For his non pushy reason and discount I would be prepared to go back even though I saw more beautiful... More

You definately have to see this shop! I fell in love with a plaid :-) The shop owner provides excellent service and gives you time to look and decide, also if this means that you'll decide to come back later or don't buy anything. If you are in Istanbul, visit this shop!!! :-)

This store is divers, clean and beautiful. The store owner is such a good guy. Getting to know him was my pleasure. He helped me without hovering around. This is a "Honest Buy Store".
