I was searching for a place to buy fair trade gifts in Tucson, and I found this write up in the Phoenix New Times:
"Caravanserai opened this spring, just off Fourth Avenue in downtown Tucson (408 E. Seventh St., 520-207-3304, www.caravanserai-tucson.com).

Every item in this tiny shop has a story, and the owner, an avid traveler and former graduate student in India, will happily regale you with them."
The shop is on 4th Ave next to Che's Bar. It was just what I was looking for!
