  • This place has a bit of everything: antiques, handicrafts, records, clothing, food, tee-shirts, primitive art, pottery, etc. It seems to be in one big interconnected old building, where you move from ...  more »
  • We had not been here for over five years, and things have changed. Before, there was so much Southwestern Art by local artists here. I don't know where all that went. We used to marvel at the pottery,...  more »
  • Looks small till you realize all the shops are connected. There's even a good pub, cantina, and small kitchen that serves all the tables in the court yard. Worth visiting just for the record shop or t...  more »

  • Amazing place. Great selection of unique and eclectic art. People who hangout there are eager to talk and exchange news of the day. It's a relaxing, peaceful place to enjoy Tucson.
  • Nice gift/art shop with lots of variety, mostly related to Tucson and the Southwest. One of the store owners chatted us up and gave us some interesting history facts about the building and the surrounding area, as well as some of the artists showcased on the store. Very friendly, and not too touristy/cliché.
  • Great food and shops. Live music is at the perfect volume to eat dinner and chat. Really unique and great place.
  • The stores are interesting, especially my favorite, Gypsy Emporium, where you can find old southwestern treasures among all the other used items. Sadly there are too few shops, though. I wish there were more. The entertainment is random, could be good, could be bad.
  • I wandered around the shops here at Christmas, it is a fun place to look around and get uniquely southwestern things, though I didn't find much I needed to buy.
