Istanbul Day Two

Beads at the Grand Bazaar

We started the day strolling through the Grand Bazaar. Sensory Overload! I came back with typical first trip purchases-Hamam towels, olive oil soaps, Copper Hamam Bowls, and a few treats from the Spice Bazaar.

We then walked through the Spice Bazaar which was fun and not as overwhelming. All the vendors seem to have fun with the bargaining and it is all fun and games.

We ended the afternoon eating at Mangerie -a hidden restaurant full of the chicest Istanbulites. We then came back to Nisantasi and browsed through Beyman’s Department Store-the Turkish  equivalent to Barneys.  It was a great shopping day mixing high and low.
