Turkey Day 6: The Antique Book Bazar

Heaven, I'm in heaven, and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak...I seem to find the happiness I seek, when I'm standing in the Sahaflar Çarşısı.  

I bought a Kuran in Ottoman style printed turkish, in addition to a collection of modern paintings on antique pages. Precious treasures.  One 300 year old Quran was so pretty, but it was 10,000 USD.  A girl can dream.  Photos were restricted in most of the shops.  I did my best.

Antique pages.
