Shopping in StyleYou may need to spend some time in Istanbul before you can really appreciate the clever design items in this shop in buzzy Karaköy, such as the simit (bagel) coasters, street sign notebooks, and tea-saucer wrapping paper. Enjoy browsing for a mix of nostalgic, whimsical, and modern gifts and souvenirs as likely to please a local hostess as they will your Midwestern grandmother. Basically there's nothing you need, but everything you want. The shop is located in the neoclassical Fransız Geçidi arcade, built in 1860 and filled with atmospheric cafés and high-end galleries.
