Picante has a fabulous selection of silver jewelry from Mexico as well as some other nice jewelry selections. (of my favorite necklaces is made from brightly colored felt flowers. It is so easy...

I came out of a shoe store in an East Broadway Boulevard strip mall and noticed the nearby Picante Designs for the first time. It was a surprise to learn that the shop had been in this location for 15 years. That's a long time to have missed out on browsing and buying in this lovely shop. Color embraced me... More

The ladies that run this shop have a eye for the well made and the unusual. Tucson can be full of inexpensive and shoddy gifts from all over the world, but these women select both interesting and items that have a certain 'cut above the rest' charm. Very nice textiles, very nice jewelry. It is worth stopping in whenever you... More

I found this store accidentally and I'm SO glad! I walked out with 5 unique tops and 2 pairs of earrings! (Luckily my birthday is coming up, so Happy Birthday, me!) Too many cute things to list, but I would Definitely recommend this shop! The sales staff was VERY helpful!

Stopped here on my way back to the airport for a gift for a friend. Neat and colorful little shop. There were a lot of clothing and pillow items - would've liked to see some smaller gifts - but still nice overall. The shop owner was very kind. Overall, worth it if you're in the area and have some spare... More

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 for us to spend an hour or two here.

Visited Picante for the second time during a recent visit to Tucson. Not only do they have lovely things and great gifts, but the customer service was great. Have bought presents for friends who don't live in Tucson twice and everyone has loved them. Very unusual, colorful, etc. While I was there, a family came in and accidentally broke one... 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 incredible taste and is very helpful in creative ideas for gifts. I've often gone in... More

Despite that fact that Picante has nice clothing and nice jewelry, the store has the worst customer service out there. Please stay away from this toxic place.
