A trend of artisan and entrepeneur shops have hit Istanbul’s Kadıköy district in the last few years. 
Erkan Sahin owns the Excentrique shop, making accessories for jugglers, fire jugglers, artists and artisans for the last five years.  I was attracted by the pitchfork and when I opened the door, he stopped sewing and invited me in for tea and a chat. Love those Turks!Erkan Sahin sews
