We are ephemera and art collectors in Istanbul and we know where to go for art and antiques. Come with us to explore the secret treasures in the back street auction houses and second-hand booksellers of Istanbul. No one should go home with cheap Chinese made souvenirs from this ancient city. Join us as we explore the weekly auctions and antique stores, hunting for treasures that the modern world can't provide. We will help you bid on the items of your choice, and get the best deal possible, to bring home memories and one-of-a-kind books and pottery or carpets that any collector would treasure.
Emrah and I met in Istanbul a five years ago. We are both writers and avid antique collectors and bonded over his spoon collection. We enjoy the odd treasure hunt. During the weekdays, I work as a lecturer at one of the top universities in the country and Emrah works in corporate communications for a private firm. On the weekends, however, we both love exploring the old Turkey, and the historic items that are available in this fascinating city of Istanbul. Emrah is a published author and a collector of old newspapers, postcards and 18th and 19th century documents. I have an affinity for old buttons and tapestries. We aren't "tour guides" per se. We live here, we love it, and we'd love to share it with you. Full profile
