thrift'n on a thursday - istanbul edition! | vol 5

hannah shih

Istanbul is such a colorful and beautiful city. The history, architecture and stunning views of the Bosphorus River just make it such a unique place. After spending a week exploring the city and devouring kebabs, I discovered that the locals LOVE their Turkish tea. Of course I had to try some myself and will say that it's quite addicting!

While shopping at the Grand Bazaar, I found these gold traditional Turkish tea glasses (left). I love the set with the little stirrer and the beautifully detailed plate. Let me tell ya, I went in circles checking all the shops to make sure I got the best deal. One place was even pricing it at $12! Good news: I got the pair for $3. The colorful patterned tea cups (right) were being sold for $8 a pop. Lucky for me, they were favors from the wedding we attended!

I love that I can still enjoy tea Turkish-style in New York. Who wants to come over for some tea??
