There is a selection of chocolates, bonbon-like akide şekeri and, of course, lokum (Turkish delight) in a few gourmet flavours such as violet, jasmine and lemon zest. Have your purchase packaged in a tambourine- or fez-shaped box with tassels and old Ottoman-era engravings on the sides. Fragrances and scented candles are also sold.
