Now operating out of two big stores on opposite sides of the city, Gospel Supplies carries everything a Christian needs to perform his or her spiritual tasks, including a great variety of books, magazines, tapes and religious art. As the name of the store suggests, Christian church music constitutes a large section of the store.
Owner Christine Olson has been running her antique shop on Speedway for 45 years and when she tells you it's the largest collection of curiosity items in Tucson, you have to believe her.

Rows and rows of shelves are stacked to the top with silver, china, crystal and collectors' items such as clocks and toy cars. You'll have to be extremely careful not to break anything in this maze of curiosities. Take your time to visit her Doll Museum, which, however disorganized it may look, will impress you with the sheer presence of 4,000 dolls.
