The artist colony of Tubac offers many shops to choose from that sell Talavera pottery and other items from South America, but there is one store that offers a particularly large and beautiful selection: La Paloma de Tubac. Their selection is astounding and their prices are great! They operate out of a historic, rambling adobe building. On your next visit to Tubac, do check them out!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
