What to buy:
Before you leave Amasya dont forget to buy a souvenir for your friends,relatives or for yourselves.
The places to buy souvenirs are mostly in the old town which is on the other side of the river.You can buy local hand made crafts,laces,table cloths,scarves,jeweleries,towels with Amasya pictures...from the ladies just near the entrance of the pontic tombs.
If you want to buy an antique or new rug,kilim,carpet or some other wooden and metal ornamentals you should have a look at Strabon Kilim Shop just near the Harsena Hotel and the ladies selling souvenirs.
If you have your own car and enough place to carry something extra,you should buy a hand-made Samovar from Stone-Inn.You can watch how its being made there.Beleive me if you like tea,you will love Samovar tea.
