Items belonging to ancient times, rare and increasing in value over the years meet with collectors thanks to the antique dealers who collect and trade them. One of these meeting places is Üsküdar Antiques Bazaar, which is within walking distance of Üsküdar Square. Dozens of shops keeping the spirit of the past alive in Mimar Sinan Neighborhood are mainly located in Kıroğlu Hanı on Büyükhamam Street. It is possible to see various shops on the street that follows. These shops are accompanied by spot sellers and second hand furniture makers.
Here the past seems to carry it in front of the door. Coins, postcards and more take passersby on a journey through time. If you step into the passage, you may encounter many valuable items, both material and spiritual.
There are many precious items in the Antique Dealers Bazaar, which undoubtedly has a special place for the people of Üsküdar. Although some of these belong to the Ottoman period, it is possible to find those brought from Europe. The regulars of the bazaar get lost among many items and look for the suitable piece. Especially for enthusiasts, this routine is of great importance. They are researching to add rare items to their collections. While a gentleman observes the contours of the carved wooden chair with a catching eye, someone looking out of the corner can find items of interest. The sewing machine inherited from our grandmothers, the stove that warmed almost all of our homes, the washing machine with roller, maybe the bicycle that was bought with enthusiasm and then not looked at, all kinds of porcelain glasses and plates make every visitor smile for a moment.
