In what is obviously a newer building with historic bones and ambiance, there are great examples of virtually all of the pueblo people's crafts, many very very high quality, with fair, appropriate pricing. Not lots of inexpensive souvenirs but nice cards as well as pots,...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.

It is Highway 76. I simply entered Chimayo in the GPS and 76 for the street. It is. Small town and people will direct you. No fees since it is an actual store but museum quality goods.
