Climbing Mountains
Where we live is important to us, and mountains have always been a significant part of our Turkey and now where we live in Porthmadog, North Wales. 
Climbing mountains & looking out over mountains has become kind of symbolic to us both... small steps forward.    
"If you are faced with a mountain, you have several options. You can climb it and cross to the other side. You can go around it. You can dig under it. You can fly over it. You can blow it up. You can ignore it and pretend it’s not there. You can turn around and go back the way you came. Or you can stay on the mountain and make it your home.” 

Vera Naziran


How will we develop Pazaar

Our plan is to develop Pazaar in small steps, gradually introducing new products and information as we develop and grow our network of Pazaar makers in Turkey.  To start with we had a focus on traditional Turkish hand-woven textiles; peştemal and hammam towels, sofa throws and blankets or pike (pee-kay) as they are called in Turkey. Last year we began to introduce our favourite home products; the biscuit moulds, spice grinders and közmatik...our amazing aubergine roasting tray!! This year we have been focusing on some beautiful new terracotta ceramics, which we hope will be in the Pazaar shop soon.

What about next year?

Who knows what next year will bring? In Fethiye, the town near where we lived in Turkey, there is the most amazing tahini maker!  It is, in all honesty, the best tahini when we have navigated the complex world of importing food products from Turkey to UK, maybe we will have Pazaar tahini, fingers crossed!
