The Best Turkish Shops on Etsy

Because we visited Turkey at the very start of our nine week trip, I only bought a few tiny souvenirs in Istanbul and Bodrum. Thanks to Etsy, picking out beautiful pieces direct from Turkey is as easy as a couple clicks. From top to bottom:

Ainurscarf - Hand-decorated scarves with crochet, amulets and tassels from Istanbul. This purple and blue option is $22.

SofaART - All kinds of beautiful handwoven kilim pillows from Izmir. The pictured pink and green choice is $64. Check out KilimDecolic for even more choices.

Alyosm - High-quality turkish towels in every sherbet color of the rainbow. Three small towels are $60.

Anteeka - This shop is in Israel, but the tassel and enamel earrings are vintage Turkish for $125.

PrettyTurkishThings - An online Turkish shop with adorable vintage phones, fez hats and evil eye beads.

Aquazestfest - A collection of vintage costume and new jewelry directly from Istanbul. I love this faux emerald ring. Gorgeous and only $42.

Decorient
 - An assortment of traditional copper-ware - like this coffee pot - and vintage Turkish toys from the coastal town of Izmit.

TurkishKilim - Vintage handmade Turkish rugs from Bergama. This bright kilim is from the 1960's. Check out TurkishMuseum and ButterflyRugs for even more choices.

Bonus - I might be in love with this insane vintage feathered turban in teal and mint from the UK.
