My friend and I were recently in Istanbul and this shop was recommended to us by someone at our hotel as a good place to find a statue of the Ayasofya. It's tucked away down the little street that runs along the left side of the gardens of the Ayasofya and we weren't disappointed. The owners are friendly and helpful and perhaps the only "non-pushy" sellers I ran into in Istanbul. They love to show you everything they have for sale and give you a chance to decide for yourself without any pressure while telling you the stories of where everything came from. I walked away with two beautiful handwoven silk scarves and some really pretty earrings with a matching necklace, not to mention two more pashminas and a statue of my beloved Ayasofya. I wouldn't hesitate to shop here again because I found a few more things that I'd like to take home but decided that I had to leave something for the next time that I visit.
