New Year Ornaments

 Although 99.5% of Turkey population is Muslim new year celebrations and ornaments are on the agenda in every December. The stores arrange New Year showcases and knick-knacks take their places in the showcases.

Where can you buy ornaments for Christmas & New Year decoration?
There are many places at which you can purchase ornaments. From Tahtakale to Euro-Flora at Kağıthane, from Carrefour or Metro to Pabetland and from the shopping malls or the stationary at the corner.

First of all let us introduce you Tahtakale. The area between EminönüMısır Çarşısı (Egyptian Bazaar) and Rüstem Paşa mosque is called Tahtakale and everything you need is in the stores at Tahtakale streets. However most stores sell New Year ornaments at this time of year. Colorful plastic or glass balls, bulbs, pine tree and door ornaments, Santa Claus toys are among the variation of these stores. The multi story car parking lot at Mercan is usually full and therefore we suggest you to take a taxi.

Euro-flora at Kağıthane is your other address. You are going to turn left from the first traffic lights after you pass the Shell gas station on Kağıthane-Cendere road and when you pass over a bridge you will see the 3-storied Euro-flora building. Pine trees on various sizes, colorful tree ornaments; several kinds of baskets and hundreds of artificial flowers are all there. This is the only store offers almost endless alternatives in tree ornaments and it is open everyday between 10:00-19:00.

Carrefour, Metro and Real are your other choices. Since they have foreign partners they offer you much more than local chains such as Migros and Tansaş.

If you wish to purchase a real pine the backyard of the Church in Taksim, entrance of Fatih Ormanı and Parklar ve Bahçeler Müdürlüğü (Directory of Parks and Gardens) of the Municipality of Metropolitan Istanbul are the addresses you can visit.

In major cities such as Ankara, İzmir, Bursa and Antalya, New Year ornaments can be purchased from hypermarkets such as Metro, Real, Koçtaş and Carrefour and from the related stores in shopping malls.
