anyway if i were richer i would fill our house with stuff from this shop but we are slowly buying bits each time we pass that way and have a chat with the really nice owner...
hes cheaper than all other places we found on the coast and makes them himself.
he sells waterpipes (trying to stop hubs continual fascination with those!for health reasons), chess sets (i sooooo want to learn this), tea sets with all sorts of colours, lamps of so many kinds/colours you wont be able to choose just one! we recently got two as i couldnt decide! and also special boxes...and a mix of other stuff. the husband and wife owners are so nice and dont mind you just going to look around for as long as you like...he also makes whatever you ask for...dangerous ground for me..i had to pretend i couldnt understand (but i did and id love to design my own and he make it)....another time..
so to cut to it i think once in a blue moon i say visit somewhere if ur there
but this place go -as i support locals who i like and i like them and i always support anone who makes locally and is is a skilled craftsperson
shop is called seckin gift shop (sorry i dont have turkish letters on my laptop)
on Erkul street in Dalyan..can be found near the end of the main mini shop street where the small bars are...if it didnt have a name i guess it would be called bar street!
you will know it when you see it as its bright!
he can pack them up to make safe for a journey and if you dont live here and want small he does small things just as interesting as the bigger ones...
and one last thing..they dont pounce on you to buy buy buy and thats a good start for any local buisiness in my opinion...
ps. will take a pick when the new additions are hung and post it on here...some cable adjustments needed though as they can be quite lengthy some of them if used as a main /middle room lamp..til now we have used smaller one as display with candles but wanted ones for elec light now to really make a statement!
pps. i want to make this my new collection idea each time i visit a place so if anyone knows if any glass makers or decorative shops worthy of a visit do let me know or even bead shops as they often sell great glass beads and i fancy making my own chandelier one day!
