This is a lovely store, with many things to look at, of all price ranges. Unfortunately, the owner will be retiring soon and the store will be closing. After years of hard work and a cheerful personality, I hope that she has a wonderful retirement!

Love the fun things for our home, the Day of the Dead items, artwork. Great service every time. Let them know if you are traveling, and things are securely wrapped for the plane or car. Our house is full of things from this shop. Easy...More

Picante is my all-time favorite store in Tucson and I've lived here my entire life. Whenever I need a gift for someone special, this is where I go. Of course, I always end up finding something special for myself, as well. Hazel, the owner, has...More
