Grand Bazaar – Fat round evil eyes

Most of my friends who visit me here in İstanbul ask the traditional tourist question; “what should we bring back home?”. Well obviously İstanbul has great presents, from Turkish delights to carpets, textiles to jewels etc. But considering my friend to have the same logic as I am I suggest them to buy the world famous Evil Eye.

It’s very tempting, the story it holds is interesting and obviously it’s very exotic. But when I say Evil Eye I don’t mean the normal ones that we all might be acquainted one way or the other. As documented above I suggest to get the, as I call them, the Fat Bottom Evil Eyes. You can hang them to anywhere in your house, give it as a precious present and guarantee a smile.

It comes in various colours, sizes and styles. Just document the vision in your head and dwell into the Grand Bazaar (which obviously is the best address). Just don’t dare to forget to bargain…
