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!

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