DHA photoSecond-hand shops around Adana are benefiting from the interest in old items from the production team for the new James Bond movie “Skyfall,” which is being shot in the southern province.
The team has bought old objects and accessories such as coffee boxes, bamboo-made furniture, radios and bookshelves.
Batuhan Hoşgör, the owner of one second-hand shop in the city’s Reşatbey neighborhood, said the team had come to his store with a translator and took photographs of the objects before later coming to conduct their purchases.
Noting that he was excited to see the team at his shop, Hoşgör said: “They said some part of the movies should reflect the 1970s, and they added that they needed old goods.”
The team for the newest 007 flick bought a radio from the 1960s and bamboo furniture, as well as some books from the 1980s, he said. “They also bought a coffee box and told me that they will put a scorpion in it.”
The director and the production team were also interested in comic books such as “Zagor” and “Scarlet Mask,” Hoşgör said. “They bought lots of books. They have chosen the books according to their covers.”
The team spent a total of 400 Turkish Liras at the shop, Hoşgör said.
