Istanbul – The Grand Bazaar February 27, 2011

Filed under: Europe,Traveling — leanbean @ 9:58 am

The Grand Bazaar was possibly my favorite part of the trip.  Most of the shops were selling rugs, leather goods, pottery, jewelry and turkish towels/bathroom stuff.  We made our way to the Grand Bazaar on Saturday for a couple of hours in the afternoon.  Due to us being there in the off season the shops were working extra hard at selling their goods.  We thought we would come home with a rug but I wasn’t willing to shell out the $450 for a rug I wasn’t sure would last with the beasts.  Plus we didn’t really have a place for a rug at the moment.  What we did come home with were leather goods and some apple tea.

At the entrance with my brand new (fake) Mulberry Alexa bag made out of real leather.  I was only able to find two things inconsistant with the fake to the real Alexa but with a savings of over $1,000 I’ll take it!

The entire bazaar is covered and is more like a mall with shops and restaurants.

Another Bazaar we visited was the Egyptian Bazaar which sold mostly spices.
