With over 100 dealers on site and 7,500 sq ft of shopping space there are things to appeal around every corner, and there's even a "want list'' available for those who are searching for specific items.

It's full of knowledgeable sales people, all friendly and willing to help, so there's never long to wait to ask that burning question or to see that must-have item up close.
Over the years the mall has received many awards and accolades, including the "Best of Tucson'' award for six years in a row and the "Tucson Favorite'' award from Tucson Newspapers, and it's also the oldest Original Owners antique mall in Tucson.

They stock a huge range of antique items, from pottery and china to furniture and books. Nestled among the items will be pre-Columbian and American Indian pieces, first edition books, vintage jewelry, silverware and fine furniture, and everything else that could be thought of.
The service is second-to-none, with not only staff that are well-versed in all areas of antiques but also in the little extras they provide to their patrons, such as the complimentary antique maps that show people the other antique stores in the surrounding area. The mall is owned by local antique experts Dwight and Christy Schannep, so shoppers can be sure that all items are well-sourced and of the highest quality.
The mall is open year-round from Tuesdays to Saturdays with opening hours of 10am until 5pm. It's also host to other events throughout the year, including the world's largest gem and mineral show that's held every February.
