Oh, the Grand Bazaar! I've never experienced anything quite like it. 10,000 vendors under one enormous roof, endless labyrinthine corridors with barrel-vaulted ceilings, dizzying colors, and aggressive salesmen, each with a different line or gimmick vying for your lira. It's among the most invigorating, frustrating, and overwhelming places I've ever experienced, and I LOVED it!
A laundry list of my numerous purchases indicates what’s available:
* Dozens of glass medusa’s eyes (varying sizes)
* Turkish flag t-shirt
* Loose spices such as saffron and cumin
* Five spice sets (there are many varieties)
* Inlaid wood and mother of pearl backgammon set
