DISCOVER THE HEART & SOUL OF LATIN AMERICA IN OUR HISTORIC 1861 ADOBE
"Wonderful store in Tubac - La Paloma de Tubac"
Any visit to Tubac would not be complete without a stop at the La Paloma de Tubac store! La Paloma showcases wonderful pottery and gifts from Latin America and the store is just a short walk from the main historic shopping area (or an even shorter drive - there are several parking spaces in front of the store). Everytime I go here I find something fantastic to buy for myself or a friend!

We have been importing folk art from the craft centers of Latin America for 35 years. We work with hunreds of artisans in villages from Mexico to Argentina. The quality of art we display is a result of decades of treating artisans fairly; not a visit to the gift show. See for yourself and experience one of the best Latin American folk art collections anywhere.
Our porcelain dinnerware collection includes over 100 serving pieces in 20 patterns. All pieces are hand painted, microwave safe, ovenproof, and available exclusively at La Paloma. We are a licensed FDA facility.
Our dinnerware has been approved by US Customs and FDA inspection for food use.
"... art is making a comeback especially in the rejuvenated Old Tubac area ...
La Paloma de Tubac displays a collection of 10,000 items of Latin American folk art. The proprietors have been dealing with the same families of folk artists in Peru, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Mexico for years. It's not high end or hard sell. This is Tubac, and it's fun."
