Zee's Warehouse



Photos from Zee's Mineral Gallery in the warehouse district. They sell an eclectic mix of fossils, minerals, antiquities and artwork. And let me say the place is just amazing to walk through.

I posted not too long ago about artists in the warehouse district being evicted from the Steinfeld Warehouse. At the same time the galleries in Zee's building also got notices. However, they've all gotten a 2 month extension on the evictions and the artists groups are trying to work with the city of Tucson to prevent the evictions and/or work towards giving the artists ownership or equity in the buildings while at the same time making sure that the buildings are safe. The city maintains that there are serious structural problems, such as stress fractures in load bearing walls in the Steinfeld Warehouse. More here and here.

They are good people too. I was taking pictures outside the gallery, an activity I have had some business owners resent, and they invited me in, said sure take pictures, and then they left! Granted most of their stock is too big/heavy for someone to just pick up and walk out with, still I liked that level of openess.

Love like you've never been hurt, and
Dance like Nobody's watching!"
