Tucson is so diverse--minerals, fossils, gems, beads, handmade jewelry, handmade beads to name a few. The African Village offers an amazing selection of art, beads, home decor & food. The people are super friendly and willing to make a deal. I was looking for unique beads, but also sculpture & masks. Here are just a few of the offerings.

If you are a collector, it's best to drive a car to Tucson, the sellers frequently have friends traveling, and are willing to call you when they get to your city & make a delivery. I'm hoping to hear from a vendor who was selling African walking sticks. He said his friend was coming to Denver & would bring the stick here. Oh, the fun of Tucson!
