Santa Claus was in town as Christmas goodies went on sale at the Best Seller Bookshop in Alsancak for people preparing for the festive season.
Tassels, lights, crackers, cards and hats were among the items to go on sale, along with
adult and child Santa suits, Christmas wrapping paper and stockings as well as 2016 calendars and diaries for those planning further ahead.
Around 75 people attended the opening of the Christmas Shop, where they enjoyed an
open buffet of snacks including cakes and hotdogs, burgers, and mulled wine.
Shop manager Monica Kotak said: “This is the fourth year we are launching our special Christmas shop. Everyone had a great time looking through our products.”
