Memories of Turkey

By Rubytuesday
I'm only now sorting all of the things I bought in Turkey
Presents for friends and family Keepsakes for myself We actually brought an empty bag withBecause we knew we'd have more coming back than we had going outAs we all knowI am a dedicated and passionate shopper My favorite day of our holidayWas in the Grand Bizarre Haggling with the tradersAnd trying to get a good priceThe thing with haggling is That both parties should come out of it happyOften the initial price a trader gives youWill be greatly inflated And they expect you to haggle with themBut not insult them
So here is some of my haul....
