Syrian Market

By the side of Luxor temple there is a fabulous market of Syrian goods. My late husband was from Syria and I have many lovely pieces from there, Syrian Damascus, inlaid goods and many other items. The market had many, many more. Bridal wear including honeymoon wear, dresses, carvings, kitchen wear. The customers are mostly Egyptian but I encourage you to have a look. Not sure how long it is there for.

I talked to one store holder commiserating on the troubles there and he said it is all media, there are no problems in Damascus and it is just a small number of people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just like we keep saying about Luxor.
