Hello, expat community!
My husband and I are looking to obtain the following in Istanbul. Shop references are great, but any opportunity to shop online is extra appreciated as I am very pregnant and this is a BIG city! Could you please also indicate if any of the sites are available in English/French as we are not sufficiently proficient in Turkish to navigate.
-(online) organic groceries & related products (i.e.: essential oils)
-fairy lights/garlands and bohemian interior decor
-indoor/outdoor plants and terrarium materials
-raw crystals, precious stones
-fine art & craft supply (i.e.: ribbons)
I realise that most nonperishables can be purchased online through giants like Amazon, etc. Has anyone had success ordering online via Amazon (or other UK/American distributors) to Istanbul? Do packages come directly to mailboxes? What is the maximum value before one can expect difficulty with customs/extra fees?
Many thanks/tesekkurler ederim!
