Final Touches Chiminea Express

Centuries ago, Mexican craftsmen combined the natural elements of earth and fire to create the Mexican "chiminea" (chi-mih-nee-ah). Originally used as functional bread ovens, these wood burning stoves enchanted all who gathered around them. Today thousands of people experience this same allure and warmth as friends entertain each other on outdoor decks and patios. The pleasure of a chiminea can be enhanced by adding fragrant woods such as pinion or
apple wood to the fire.

About Our Shop


Our small family business was started in 1997 when we opened our shop in downtown Blowing Rock, NC.  At first, we did not know what kind of shop we where going to be.   We planned on selling home and garden decor… many other shops in town.  On our very first trip to Americas Mart in Atlanta, GA we stumbled across a small booth selling Mexican Chimineas.  Although, we had absolutely no idea what a Mexican Chiminea was, we where intrigued by the item.  We ordered five for our little shop…..the purchase of these five chimineas changed our business forever.

Our shop transformed into a specialty store offering all type of home and garden art from Mexico.  We now travel to Mexico to personally pick out wonderful treasures.  Over the years we have developed strong business relationships and friendships with very talented Mexican Artisans, we have even developed some of our own designs for them to create!   Thanks for visiting our site, we hope you find something that you will enjoy!  If you have any question, please contact us.

Be sure to visit our sister site for more Mexican Art!

All the Best,
Susan and Agapios
