KISMET offer fair trade, local, vintage and heirloom treasures
at fair prices. Operated by Tucson CARES so when
you shop at KISMET, you help Tucson’s less fortunate companion animals. Tucson CARES provides rescue services, education and support to the community. The focus of Tucson CARES is on intensive spay and neuter and helping owners and guardians keep their beloved pets despite challenges and uncertain times.
KISMET means ‘ destiny’ or ‘fate.’ When you shop at KISMET,
- you change the fate of companion animals who are often destined for the 2 largest shelters in Pima County. Both of them kill the vast majority of animals.
- you help our planet. KISMET values recycling, reusing, repurposing and re-enjoying well-made, high quality products from around the world. Our buyers seek out items that have a rich heritage and heirloom qualities. You have a choice: buy a 4-pack of poorly produced plates at a big box store or buy beautiful china with enduring value at KISMET for less!
- you help our local community and fair-trade businesses. KISMET purchase consumable products like soap and coffee from them. KISMET features local artists and offers community and school events including art workshops.
- you save money. KISMET offers enduring, quality products at fair prices, and because Tucson CARES is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit charity, KISMET does not charge sales tax. Volunteers and your generous donations of money and quality items keep our overhead low. In return, our profits directly benefit more animals.
- you’re treated well. KISMET prides itself on customer service. Coffee and tea are always brewing for our customers.
