An eclectic mix of wares sold by multiple vendors. My ultimate favorite is ANATOLIAN SILVER COMPANY. I loved his earrings! I bought 8 pair that I am not having buyer's remorse over. Go visit him and peruse his merchandise, I guarantee that you will find at least one thing that you must buy.
There were many craftsmen there selling things from fresh water pearls to handmade jewelry. I found an interesting necklace for my daughter made of old watch parts. Very cool. Decorated for fall!
