The Works, ''Objects oF Desire'' is a unique fleamarket / Antique Shop owned and operated by A.Karaca Borar ''Works'' literally means ''more of everything'' ( As in you would say ordering ''Give me the works'' when you prefer to have all the flavours in an ice cream parlour) and it also describes the soul and physical variety of the merchandise in The Works...
Karaca Borar is the son of unsurpassedly creative and eccentric playwrite and author Sevim Burak. He grew up surrounded with antiques and old objects in an ethnically mixed neighborhood of Kuzguncuk, İstanbul... An avid colectioner himself, he has been collecting (and selling) since his childhood everything from classical cars to erotic postcards.

Primarily educated in İstabul Galatasaray Lisesi, he later graduated from Hammersmith & West London College, London... He opened up his first flea market stand in 1980 on Columbus Ave. and 83rd st. in New York City.

The shop ''The Works'' first opened in 1991 on Ağahamam Cad. Beyoğlu not far from the current shop. The Works at one point formed to create brand name ''Tony Rockett'' with French national partners. When visiting you may be offered a glass of wine, humored, tested! and listen to a Rossini opera... In short, we insist you have fun and enjoy yourself while there...
