Markets Do Not Equal Poor Quality
Many textiles and leather products of famous brands are
manufactured in Turkey. Most of these brands give their ‘export surplus’ or faulty items to the markets, to be sold with or without showing the brand name. The quality of such items ranges from perfect (export surplus) to slightly faulty, and sometimes even with a big shortcoming (called defolu in Turkish).
Three Market Shopping Essentials
While shopping for textile items, keep the following basic rules in mind:
- Quality Check — It is your responsibility to check out the quality of the items, so you are allowed to investigate the stall and samples.
- Crowds Can Be Positive — Every shopper wants to get his or her hands on the highest quality pieces. Therefore, some stalls tend to be more crowded than others, which may indicate where to find the top goodies. Be aware though that you could get intimidated by the hassle. When you find an item you might want to buy, do not let go until you have made up your mind. Once you put it down, it’s someone other’s to take.
- You Can Bargain – Lastly, shout or wave at the stallholder to pack your items and pay for them. You can always bargain, but you won’t always be successful. However, your chances increase with the number of items you plan to buy.
