For five years, this colorful store inside the Williams Business Centre has provided locals and visitors with things they never knew they needed, such as ceramic pigs painted in colors that customers may pick from the store's design collection. Each painted pig will take on a personality of its own. As if that was not enough, the shop also offers adult gift items such as ceramic envelopes, which are in fact mail holders, and sports clocks. There's a lot more of that kind of useful stuff. You just have to come and see for yourself.
This is certainly one of the leading cigar stores in the Southwest, and it's not just a good place to buy them, but actually one of the best places to smoke them. A recent Tucson city ordinance generally forbids smoking in restaurants and cafes, leaving few places for dedicated smokers to indulge their vices. After perusing a wide variety of premium cigars, pipe tobaccos and accessories, connoisseurs may relax in one of the plush lounge chairs, savor their cigars, sip espressos and exchange notes with other tobacco aficionados. What else can you ask for?
