4 Faik Paşa Yokusu, Istanbul, , Turkey

The rapidly gentrifying side streets between Cihangir and İstiklâl Caddesi are lined with shops selling antiques, furniture, and weird-but-wonderful junk. This four-story showroom-mansion run by Erkal Aksoy (the neighborhood’s unofficial antiques king) is littered with textiles, pottery, Ottoman embroidery, and kaftans.
