The Karada Marina shopping centre is a wonderfully clean, bright and modern shopping centre not too far from the yacht club on Neyzen Tefvik Caddesi.
The shops are quite exclusive and are designed with the wealthier shopper in mind but even if you don't want to spend a fortune down there, it is s lovely place to walk around - take in the atmosphere and watch the beautiful people with their large boats sail by.
Lots of nautical themed shops, sail wear and equipment and designer stores are located here. There is also a small supermarket here so if you are staying at the hotels that are local to this centre (such as Seckin Konaklar) this is a handy place to stock up without having to walk too far with your shopping.
What to pay: Expensive

For all your shopping needs pop to the Oasis shopping and cultural centre on the main Bodrum to Gumbet Road (at the crossroads). There are approximately 200 shops, cafes, restaurants and bars here - there is a marks and spencers and many other well known retailers who have jumped on the trendy Bodrum andwagon.
There is also a cinema. The downside to a complex like this is that it may take business away from the smaller and more traditional traders in the town centre however there are only so many boncuk trinkets you can see before you crave a little retail therapy!!
What to buy: There is limited haggling potential in this part of town as many of these franchises have bigger agendas and overheads to worry about.

I have used a great website that sells all things Turkish and will ship pretty much anywhere. Tulumba.com is based in America but they have Turkish books, music, food, maps,clothing and jewellery available at very reasonable prices. They have a travel service.
There will be a shipping charge but the service is fast and efficient.
I have recently ordered some road maps from them and they arrived within a few days of my order and in good condition.
There is also a linked website that sells from within Turkey.

Downtown shopping can be annoying because you get hassled by agressive salespeople. But at the same time, the customer service is impeccable. You have to bargain. Thats where you will get the best deals. OASIS is a shopping mall in Bodrum that is lovely, but it is normal to high prices. There is a movie theatre there as well.
What to buy: The best things are JEANS - all the top brands that might be fake, but the quality is so good, you'd never tell. For two sweet pairs of jeans (D&G and G-Star) the guy started asking 298 Lira. I ended up only paying 160, (I probably could have got it for 140, but it was to the point where I had asked them to hold them for me and I would be back). In general you can pay 30 euros for Diesel, G-star and Dolce and Gabana jeans...the latest models! Also, if PUMA shoes are your thing, you are in luck!
What to pay: Whatever you can bargain. At Oasis, it is a regular mall though and you will pay the sticker price.

One of the joys of visiting Turkey is the vast array of shopping, you can get almost anything here at a fraction of the price you would pay in most countries. Bodrum has a great shopping area which is located from the bus station all the way down to the marina. This photo was taken in the main shopping area near mc donalds, but it does get very busy here at night

you would like to eat all in the shop:) read this little article about turkish delight "lokum" by Tom Brosnahan : "He marched into his confectioner's kitchen and mixed water, sugar, corn starch, cream of tartar and rosewater, cooked it up, poured the mixture into a flat pan slicked with almond oil, and let it cool. Then he sprinkled it with powdered sugar, cut it into bite-sized chunks and...his hand trembling, his eyes bright with anticipation, his mind fraught with trepidation, his lips quivering to receive the morsel...he bit!
What? No crack of candy crunched by his mighty alpine jaws? No shower of sugary splinters scattering through his oral cavity? Why, this new confection was soft and easy to chew, a pleasure, a treat for both palate and teeth! It was... it was...a comfortable morsel!"
What to buy: turkish delight with lots of different kinds..
What to pay: depends between 10 euros and 30 euros for each pack..
