Стамбул - это бывший Константинополь. Здесь есть блошиные рынки и антикварные магазины. Но работают они совсем не по расписанию. Если вы прочтете, что рынок открывается в 9 часов - приходите к 11 и тогда, может быть, кто-то начнет работу. Я бы не сказал, что это настоящий рай для любителей блошиных рынков и лавок старьевщиков. Они тут есть - лавки и старьевщики, но качество и цены оставляют желать лучшего. Кроме того постоянно беспокоит мысль о проблемах с вывозом купленного: вывоз антикварных предметов из Турции запрещен.
Будьте осторожны с таксистами: очень часто попадаются жулики. Такси в Стамбуле строго зарегулировано: 2,5 динара посадка и 2 динара километр. Все это четко видно на таксометре. Если вам на таксометре показывают цифры в количестве более четырех (две до запятой и две после) - можете не сомневаться перед вами жулик! Зовите полицию, вас дурят минимум вдвое.

 Kadıkoy Antikacılar 

Kadıköy Anılar Antik has three floors.

In the store run by Fikret Pekçetin, who is from Moda, Kadıköy, wall-clocks, British-made chests, gramophones, solid oak tables, wooden cupboards and sofa sets are some of the furniture greeting us. Ottoman pieces as well as German, British and French furniture are in considerable amount. “In the period before 1800 this kind of furni-ture were not used by the Ottoman people. There were divans, floor beds and wardrobe beds. After 1850s, they started using them. From palaces it was passed on to manor houses, summer houses, mansions and,after 1950s, to houses. Before 1950s, wealthy classes in Istanbul bought this kind of furniture, but it is only after 1950s that people use them” says Mr. Pekçetin.

He is actually a collector of clocks. He began collecting clocks years ago and bought everything about them. When his clocks were impossible to keep in his house he rents a storeroom in Horhor Antiques Bazaar. But in time it turns into a store, and he is in Kadıköy for six years. He does not like luxurious stores, and likes people to feel comfortable in coming in. There are furniture here priced nearly between 100 YTL and 3000 YTL. “We give some furniture economic value, and take ones that you consider as of no economic value and get them repaired. Someone –workers, varnishers, salesmen- earn money from this job and the one who buys it uses it for years” he says. All are pieces made by carpenters in small workshops. And they have a kind of romanticism: “I bought a clock 45 years ago and fixed it. It had been waiting in a coal cellar all that time, and it was like talking to me when it started working. Later, when there were a number of them on the wall, they were all like telling different memories. Maybe some of them previously shared the same place but they got separated by different causes, and finally met in this store again. I wonder if they are whispering to each other saying ‘Here we have met again“ says Mr. Pekçetin.

Osmancık Antik is one of the old ones in Tellâlzade. They are in this bazaar for eighteen years. Looking like chock full from outside, there are thousands of objects reaching the ceiling in the store. French and Ottoman ob-jects, accessories, glassware and furniture from between the 18th and 19th centuries… Hundreds of kinds of arti-cles and objects from calligraphy sheets to enlargers, cups and trays… Spending hours seeing all these is very easy. Picked one by one from many houses, prices of these objects change between 20 YTL and 3000 $.
