Old Town Artisans
Old Town Artisans is a place not to be missed when sightseeing in downtown Tucson. The old adobe structure in the historic Presidio district invites visitors to explore its shops, galleries and restaurants, or to just sit and relax in the wonderful courtyard shaded by palm trees. It's a kind of art shopping center catering to tourists eagerly looking for souvenirs from the Southwest. In fact, it offers everything from Navajo rugs to dried prickly pear jam.
I liked the quality of the jewelry and pottery. I liked the service that I got from the sales staff. I liked the wonderful selection of carved fetishes from the Zuni reservation. This is the best place to shop for Native American Jewelery and pottery in Tucson and perhaps in all of Arizona.
I liked the jewelry at the La Zia store in Old Town Artisans. The food in the restaurant was good too. I also bought some native pottery at the La Zia store and was so glad I did when I found the same type of pot selling for much more at a store in Tucson Mall.
The Mexican shop here, not sure of the name is a must see too. The owner was such a nice man.
