Turkish Spoils: Istanbul Haul

I came home with a lot more than just experiences after visiting Istanbul. In fact, I came home with so much that I had trouble closing (and lugging around) my suitcase! Watch the video below to see what I bought in Turkey, as well as my shopping recommendations for Istanbul!

If you're interested in purchasing from the vendors mentioned above, here's the information:

ATA Textiles (towels)
Arasta Bazaar No: 57
Sultanahmet, Fatih, Istanbul

Galeri Ant (scarves--ask for Timur!)
Hocapasa Mah. Tayahatun Sk. No: 6
Sirkeci, Eminönü, Istanbul

For those of you who've been to Istanbul, what did you buy?


  1. What a great haul! I hope to travel to Istanbul one day, I've had many people tell me that it's definitely a must-see. I'm so glad that I'm following you on bloglovin, I can't wait to read more!

    xo, Dolce
    Leave me a comment; I'm always looking for new blogs to follow!

  2. Looks like you had a great time and scored some good stuff, thanks for sharing

  3. I would love to visit Turkey someday!! I also love that you posted your haul. It's so much fun to see what people pick up while on vacation. I love everything you bought! I just bought way too much stuff in Cambodia and could barely close my suitcase on the way home as well. It was filled with silk scarves and make-up bags, wooden spoons made from palm trees, and lots of fair trade pillow covers.

  4. Looks like you got a ton of awesome stuff! :D I kinda pack an empty suitcase-inside-a-suitcase whenever I go to Asia. :x

  5. Popping over from the PJ party just watched your haul! So jelly that you visited such an exotic country that I feel like a lot of people overlook! Those scarves are fantastically beautiful!

  6. Ahhh you have some gorgeous finds. I want to travel someday but til then I am 100% living vicariously through you.

  7. It is! I hope you get to go there someday! And I've been reading you on Feedly for over a year! ;)

  8. OOOH do show us! I'm the same way--it's so fun to see what they got, because it's usually nothing like what you can find back home! I bet Cambodia was just much envy!

  9. The hardest part is crossing the ocean--once you're over here, it's easy (and cheap)! You'll make it, girl!

  10. I have never been, but it sounds like such a fun adventure for sure!!

  11. This looks like a lot more fun than shopping at Briarwood, that's for sure! Lovely picks!
