Most of my time in Antalya so far has included a lot of walking around strange streets and lots of back streets to find a shop that may have something im searching for! No offense to my Turkish friends (i love you guys) :) but i have found Turkish people are not good at giving directions! So to hopefully help some fellow travellers out along the way i thought i would post some of the places i go to that are brilliant.

Ayda Kirtasiye with Ahmet Yerebakan in Kaleici

Hükümet Caddesi Aklar Işhanı No.8
Tel: 0242 241 35 04
This Kirtasiye is actually solely an art supply shop. You can get every thing you can think of. They have supplies for the following painting mediums: Oil, Pastel, Acrylic, Watercolour, Enamel, Spray paint. Also you can get all types of drawing media supplies, as well as brushes, books, carry cases ect.... They are very reasonably priced and great quality.
The shop is slightly hidden in Kaleici. Its directly accross the street from the clock tower, in the little side street- 1.SK on the map:

Mavi Boncuk- Mufide Surucu
Milli Egemenlik Cad. Dallar Yildiz Sitesi No:7/C
Tel: 0242 242 10 72
This essentially is a jewellery supply shop. You can can any type of beads and clasps and leather and cord and accessories for making earrings, necklaces, braclets ect.... It was pretty cheap depending on the beads you get. The people there are super helpful and one of the ladies there speaks very good english and russian.

If you go up Anafartalar Cd turn right on Milli Egemenlik Cad, you will see a bus station/stop on the left hand side and Mavi Boncuk is a little blue shop next to a cafe behind it.

It's good that you've found them Bernie :) Yes, there are too many shops like that. You should just walk and search sometimes. I see them all "generally" when I don't need them B)

So, I gave you just the main destination but couldn't give you any exact address :(

I've seen also many bead shops on the way to Real Supermarket but all of them are on the back streets and even I have to search for them now :(

Can you perhaps also add it to the business directory under 'city guide'?
