I dont know istanbul very well but I got tons of beads and stuff from KADIKOY district. They say Tahtakale is cheaper, Ali Faik Pasajı, Boncuk Han, Terme Han, Marpuççular İş Merkezi, Sabuncu Han are the names of 'malls' you shoudl look for. In Turkey, small shops  are usually housed in a big buildings, they are kind of like malls although not very fancy :)

here is some  other addresses I found from the Turkish web sites, hope this is helpful.

I live in Istanbul and you will have no trouble finding beads.  Fabrics are a little tougher.  Send me a message (through craftster) when you get here and I'll be happy to show you what I know.

I'm planning on going to the Bead Conference (http://www.istanbul-boncuk.org/ ) in November.  I am looking for other bead stores in Istanbul as well.  We are staying in Taxim but will also be in Sultanahmet.  Are there bead shops in the Grand Bazaar?

Thank you,
