BLUE plates, mugs, platters, etc............ They are an amazing work of art all of their ceramic items. I just like to go and look around the place, is quite big with thousands of pieces......they let you take pics outside but not inside. I noticed the prices are quite sky high and usually we pick up pieces at other smaller establishments at a lower price ...but just to go and look around here is amazing. Then we visit one of the Coffee houses down the street and enjoy a Turkish glass of tea (cay). Love sitting outside those cafes and just watching the people go about their daily lives.
