I want a Talavera bath sink.

Where's the best place to find a good selection? Who has the best prices?I

I'm planning a trip to Nogales, Mexico. Any good places there?

I have seen the talavera sinks in several stores in Tubac, I think that would be worth a visit since you are driving right by anyway!

Tubac would be a good place to start. In Tucson, there are several Mexican import stores that will have them. Also, Talavera sinks come up periodically on Facebook Marketplace in Tucson.

Success! Great sink, great price, good lunch, fun adventure, home by sunset.
Border crossing on foot was quick on the way in (long line of cars, though), took about half an hour on the way back.

We stopped in Tubac on the way down, could only find two sinks, both too big and ugly.
After checking prices on other items I've shopped elsewhere, I have to say that Tubac is an overpriced tourist trap.

Good for you, going to the source and not opting for huge markups in Tucson, Tubac or on the internet! Well done!
