Antiques and old things from old Izmir
This shop is situated also in Kizlaragasi han and i found some very interesting old things from old Izmir, from 1922 and before, when Greeks were leaving there. I found old greek books and some very nice pieces which always will remind the history of Smirna (Izmir).
One of the most important shopping center in Izmir is around this street in Karsiyaka area. There are many small shops about men, women and child clothes, shoes, jewelry, food, drink etc. So this street is always crowded.
- Budget Travel
Bargaining is necessary....
Even if I never do this at shopping, I think that the turks do this without asking this. Actually I bought many nice things in very good prices, maybe because I m a greek:)) and also they gave some nice souvenirs as presents.
The Kizlaragasi Han
The Kizlaragasi Han (inn), a fine example of 18th-century Ottoman architecture of the period, is my favourite bazaar in Izmir. Especially I always buy very beautiful ceramics from some shops in this bazaar, and I always enjoy a turkish coffee in any of the most nice cafe of the town, which are situated inside this old building
What to buy: Ceramics, silver jewelry, carpets, traditional gifts
Shopping area: Kemeralti Bazzar
Kemeralti is a general shopping area in the heart of the city. I could say that it is a typical bazzar, where you can find anything to buy , in very good prices..
What to buy: clothes, shoes, antiques, local crafts, gifts, jewelry
sorry dont know: Turkish military wear
I clicked men´s clothes but women can also wear that stuff. The shop is located between the kemeralti bazaar and the big store at the clock towers place. It´s a nice small shop and u get all kind of marine shirts in all colours white, blue, military style. They are very cheap, not best quality, but I have never seen something like this anywhere else.
Busiest Shoping Area
The busiest shopping area is the Kemeralti Streets, which still retain a 19th century atmosphere of pull-down shutters, thresholds of the doors, low ceilings and old briquettes. On both sides of Anafartalar Caddesi is the lively atmosphere of the street vendors, bronze workers and fishermen, and Fevzipasa Bulvari which is famous for its leather garments. In contrast to the traditional and busy old market, Alsacak has modern boutiques and Cankaya has a huge shopping centre much.
Beautiful cafes in Kizlaragasi Han
Enjoy a turkish or a greek coffee - we prepare this with the same way - in one of the most nice coffee shops in the old building
