For shoppers familiar with Turkey only!

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Turkey (Selcuk, Cappadocia and Istanbul in that order) and I am trying to plan ahead for my shopping expenditures- shopping being one of my favorite activities while traveling (in and around historical sights, eating, etc.). My question: what are the relative prices of things like the flat Turkish towels (NOT terrycloth), pottery, copper pieces and kilims, and where are the best places to purchase them? I have heard great reviews of Jennifer's in the Arasta bazaar (Istanbul), but wonder if prices and selection might be better in the Selcuk and/or Cappadocia regions. Also wonder about your experience with shipping, including using resources like Mailboxes, Etc. from Turkey (I have had great luck with them shipping from Spain and Italy). Thanks for any help you can give!
