About Us

Now that the Tucson mask mandate has been lifted, we are no longer requiring masks to be worn in our store by people who have been fully vaccinated. We do ask that those who have not yet completed their vaccination process, or anyone who is feeling sick, or people who would like to protect themselves from illness still wear masks while they are shopping in our stores. Please help us keep Tom’s safe by following these guidelines. Thank you!

Starting in 1981 inside a modest little storefront at Alvernon and Speedway, local entrepreneur Tom Ward began selling quality second hand furniture, lamps and decorative items. Tom’s eye for quality and his passion for home furnishings became his recipe for success, and it didn’t take long for word to get around and for Tom’s business to catch on. Shoppers in Tucson began flocking to Tom’s Fine Furniture and Collectables to find all sorts of wonderful things to beautify their homes inside and out.

Within a few years Tom’s outgrew this first store and Tom moved his operation to a larger building at 3402 E. Grant Road (the former home of Tia Elena Mexican Restaurant). Business continued to boom and it didn’t take long for Tom’s to outgrow the Grant Road store. In 2000 Tom’s Fine Furniture and Collectables expanded again, this time into the 16,000 square foot former Food Giant supermarket located in the Londontown shopping center at 5454 E. Pima Street. Business at both stores continued to increase, but the recession of 2008 caused a slowdown for retailers everywhere, and for a while Tom closed down the Grant Road store. However, in December of 2015, Tom’s reopened their beautiful Grant Road location to the delight of our customers.

In May, 2020, Tom’s opened a beautiful new 10,000 sq. ft. store in the former Shall We Dance building at 4101 E. Grant Road, right in the heart of Midtown. We have recently dubbed this store Tom’s Store #2.

Tom’s company motto is “When New Isn’t Good Enough,” because we know that the furniture that our parents and grandparents owned was crafted from better materials than most of the furniture you can buy new today, and it was made to last for generations. You’ll find details of quality construction, such as real wood (not wood pulp), dovetailing (not butt-joinery), 8-way hand-tied springs, and screws or pegs (instead of staples) on most of our furniture. These are a few of the details Tom looks for when selecting quality inventory for his stores.

Our Pima Street and Grant Road stores carry the same high quality, gently used and one-of-a-kind furnishings, however there are a few differences between the two locations.

The Pima Street store is our Superstore, and in addition to furniture, lamps, framed artwork, mirrors, large rugs, and other decorative items you can find jewelry, vintage clothing, silverware sets, china sets, clocks, and a ton of vintage smalls that appeal to collectors of every stripe.

The New Grant Road store offers even more of the high quality second hand furniture, lighting, rugs, and home and fashion accessories our customers love! It is also where we sell outdoor, garden and patio furniture, and brand new lamp shades. And we have recently added a lamp repair shop in this store, where you can bring your broken lamps to have them re-wired and repaired.

The original Grant Road store in the old Tia Elena building is currently closed and will remain so for the time being. Due to its interesting history, we are leaving the page on our website for anyone who is curious about it.

Our selection of furniture always changes. Customers love our vast selection ranging from 18th Century antiques and primitives to classic European pieces and  20th Century styles including Mission, Art Deco, Southwest, 1980’s & 1990’s Postmodern, Contemporary, and Mid Century. If you’re looking for it, we have it. And if we don’t have it today we might just have it next week.

If you haven’t been to Tom’s Fine Furniture and Collectables, we invite you to come and find out why people travel from every corner of the United States to find that special piece they can’t find anywhere else, and at prices they love!
