Turkish history is very old and we have many hidden treasures on this land. I believe antiques are the best to experience a culture deeply. So, are you ready to travel in time with me? In this shopping tour we visit Neco’s antique store in my neighbourhood. He is very passionate and collected pieces for 35 years. We will see Ottoman silvers, village’s old doors, jewelries, Muslim rosaries (Tesbih), pots, lambs, cutlery, porcelain and many other soulful objects. We will also listen their history and stories from Neco. Then we are going to a unique antique jewelry store. Their special designs has not only Turkish pieces but also mixed styles. After seeing designs we get our ice cream from the best store and we are going to experience Turkish Carpets and Kilims. Fatih and Recep (father-son) are working together from the beginning of 80’s. Their collection mainly consists of old kilims which were found in the old village chests. They are renovating pieces without damaging their spirit. Besides, we will also see their handmade copper collection. Some are crafted by the last artisans from east Turkey. This valuable collection can be seen at famous venues in the world. They are humble people; the prices are honest. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please write me first, before booking or paying for your experience.
