What do buy in Greece or Turkey that you can't get here or is a deal?

Jump to last reply

It used to be going to these countries would mean you could find items that here in the U.S. would cost considerably more or could not be found at all.

The boundaries are gone and yet, there must be something that makes you glad you bought what you did when you did.

I hear the olives in Turkey are worthy of bringing back... but hey, what if they break open... yuck. And you gotta be careful about customs, no?

Short of bringing home something tacky, what would you recommend and where to shop and what to pay. I am heading to the Greek Islands, Athens, Istanbul.

Cha, cha, cha.
