Price range for carpets and other items in Istanbul?

Jump to last reply

Less than three weeks till my first trip to Istanbul. I was just reading the thread about bargaining in Turkey and am wondering what kinds of prices carpets start at. Obviously a large well made rug will be thousands, but how much might you have to spend to get a small area rug or runner or something like that?

Also, I know you have to bargain on things like rugs and probably even jewelery and and leather goods. But what about things that are in the $10-$30 range. Things like small ceramic items, costume jewelery, etc. Do you even haggle over things like that? Are there any prices posted on things ( or signs) or do you have to ask about everything? Thanks
