Polisajci Brothers Antique Show

37-39 Yaglikcilar Sokak, Ic Cebeci Han
Istanbul, Turkey
TEL: 90-212-526-1831

Located in the Grand Bazaar, home to more than 4,400 shops, the Polisajci Brothers Antique Show is a small operation selling antique metalware once used in 16th-century kitchens and hammams. The shop is owned by Nizam and Tevfik Cholak, and its inventory consists primarily of Ottoman pieces, such as copper pots and bowls. Much like a working blacksmith shop, a layer of soot often hangs in the air here, creating a dark and somewhat intriguing look. The staff speaks very little English, so a translator might be necessary.

Insider Tip:

While visiting the bazaar, stop by the famed Şark Kahvesi café for a mug of sahlep (hot milk flavored with cinnamon, sugar, and flour ground from Anatolian mountain orchid roots).
