Shopping in Style
You may need to spend some time in Istanbul before you can really appreciated the clever design items in this shop in buzzy Karakoy, such as 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 your Midwestern grandmother. Basically it's nothing you need, but everything you want. The shop is located in the neoclassical Fransiz Gecidi arcade, built in 1860 and filled with atmospheric cafés and high-end galleries.
