Unfortunately so many trips that haven't saved all receipts (who could); cannot remember. A normal, narrow, not very big shop. Reliable. No pirates.
We especially asked the staff for Tarkan's music and he knew immediately what to recommend and we haven't regretted.
What to buy: Turkish music: Tarkan's Turkish pop music (was top famous in Turkey and perhaps elsewhere too at least still in 2004). He has new recordings and is touring this year around Europe, but check also the older recordings; they were beach hits and played in Turkish holiday resort restaurants and they were nicely rhytmic. Look for at least a record named "The Ultimate Collection" (2003), that was perhaps the most popular.
Also buy bellydancing music (available also in DVD with dancing), traditional older Turkish music. A good idea to organize a theme dinner for your friends "Turkish night", put on something Turkish, if nothing else then a hat of some sort. They sell also belly dancer's clothes (what clothes...).
Cook something Turkish and put the Turkish music on...perhaps you dare to buy a (smaller than in the restaurants) waterpipe too.
What to pay: Difficult to say, like everyone knows these things depend on the budget, on what people buy (we are so different everyone). ¨
Not an expensive country (unless you want to buy fashion stuff like anywhere else). Please note that some salesmen, even shops, sell pirate clothes even if they claim else.
I loved Turkish market place! It was full of pretty colours and smells. I bought a lot of spices and teas. Turkish apple tea is so-ooo different to others! So delicious! Just check the days, when the market place is open!
What to buy: TEA!!!
