The neighborhoods of Cihangir and Çukurcuma are a delight for anyone attracted to nostalgia. Vintage clothes shops, junk stores, antique showrooms, and second-hand bookstores can all be found here, nestled in among a thriving café culture. Popular with local hipsters, bohemians, and intellectuals, this is a sort of village within a city, with a distinct culture of its own. Mozk is a store that fits right into this neighborhood. It deals in antique furniture, books, home accessories, clothing, and jewelry and is a fascinating place for a browse. The range is varied and prices are more reasonable than some of the smarter shops. The owners are both friendly and helpful, offering and advice and information on the items they stock, from lace dresses to wooden dressers, and '20s light fixtures to '60s sunglasses. It may not be very authentically Turkish, and a lot of the goods come from Europe rather than the Ottoman Empire, but if you're lucky, you might just find a bargain.
