We always plan a stop at Chimayo Trading and Mercantile and Chimayo Trading Del Norte with our out-of-town visitors. John Abrams in Chimayo and his son, Gabriel, in Rancho de Taos are always ready to explain the various native art works and provide insight into the native artists they carry. We rely on John and especially Gabriel these days to... More

We loved this place! The selection of rugs is unique in Chimayo; we were far closer getting into trouble there than at some other places. The pottery selection is fantastic, and we are already saving up for a trip next year -- and this place will be our very first stop. We did buy something this time: a Zuni pendant... More

Very quaint building. Not at all what you would expect when you walk in. Lots of Native American Art, handcrafted jewelry and pottery galore. Was a nice quiet place to shop for gifts and reasonably priced.

If you want to see what the artisans of New Mexico have to offer, this is the place. This store is more like a combination museum and art gallery. They have a huge selection of jewelry, pottery, weaving, paintings and much more.

The Chimayo Trading and Mercantile name subtly underscores the quality of Native American Art which is found there. Recommended to us by a serious collector of SW Art and we were so very pleased upon stopping in. Quality is evident & pricing is both fair and reasonable as compared to the higher priced Santa Fe galleries on Canyon Road &... More

What a treat. Such a wonderful variety of quality art. John was so knowledgeable. He had wonderful stories about the artists and such an appreciation for their work. He printed out an article on Wayne "Snowbird" Shields for me as I purchased one of his pieces. This is a must visit Mercantile and give yourself plenty of time to everything.

I revisited this shop four years after accidently discovering it while on the high road to Taos. The owner educated me on pottery and Pueblo arts. I returned since I knew I would find quality items complete with printouts about the artist. I felt confident that the price was fair and the quality top notch. If you are just starting... More

I went inside this rather plain and unassuming business to buy some wooden animals from a man who must be in his late 80's. I understand he has been carving wooden animals for over 50 years.

I have visited this shop a few times over the years and have always found the merchandise to be of excellent quality. You can buy Chimayo weavings here or visit the weavers' stores directly in the village. The jewelry selection is very good, and I bought a very beautiful inlaid bracelet on this trip. Upstairs they have an exceptional small... More
