We have all, or most of us, obviously had an experience of buying not just property but everyday items or even larger items like furniture, it may be interesting to see who enjoys the haggleing/bartering and how long you will haggle/barter for and how much you have driven down he price, and on what?

It is common tradition as well in Turkey that when you have purchased from a shop they give you a present, but this you have to ask for.
They will then offer you something in the shop of little value of course for free. So next time you buy something of a resonable value ask for your present.

Forget the useless present, give me a better price instead!!

There is a lot of room for negotation but always get a couple of prices from other shops, they can vary significantly.

Generally speaking, once you have found a shop offering good prices, keep going back there as they will value your custom and continuing to give you their best price.

so long as you are happy with the price you paid that shouldnt be a problem

I normally work on the basis of paying between a third and a half (but sometines come home with nothing)
