Arcades and Commercial Buildings

A wide range of items from postcards, documents and old or secondhand books to posters, labels, boxes, and perfume and medicine bottles find buyers at these auctions, which are concentrated in the districts of Taksim, Kadıköy and Nişantaşı. Kadıköy’s Kafkas and Akmar Arcades, Aslıhan Pasajı on İstiklal Caddesi in Beyoğlu, and the Rumeli and Hak Arcades in Nişantaşı are the focal points for book and ephemera auctions. Several bookshops also have showrooms where books are auctioned on a regular basis. Not only can you buy whatever strikes your fancy, if you like you can also unload things you happen to have lying about at home.
