KIMOSABE
A MECCA FOR ART & ANITIQUE LOVERS

Kimosabe is a mecca  for art and antique collectors and decorators from all over the world. Situated in an 1860's adobe along a charming brick-lined alley just off the Northwest corner of Taos' main plaza, the shop exudes the charm of old Taos. Step through the front door, and you are immeadiately surrounded by a remarkable display of vintage ethnographic art, principally from the American Southwest.

Historic pueblo pottery (Zuni, Hopi, Acoma Et Al), vintage Navajo rugs, Native American blankets, old pawn jewelry, American Indian baskets and beadwork, New Mexican furniture, and numerous historic paintings and drawings from noted early Taos, Santa Fe and other American Western painters. Vintage Wild West show and early Western movie posters, along with New Mexican folk art also hang from the walls and vigas. For more than twenty years, Kimosabe has showcased the rich art history of Taos, Santa Fe and the American West in its' small but soulful space.

The collection/inventory in Kimosabe is continually revolving; the quality always high. Kimosabe is noted for its' reasonable prices, attracting many customers from Santa Fe with a sophisticated eye, averse to paying "Santa Fe prices".

Owners Cynthia Spray and Robin Rew have harmoniously blended their individual specialized understanding of historic materials as well as their personalities to create a truly great collecting/shopping experience. Both are pleased to appraise items at no charge. Kimosabe purchases both individual pieces & entire collections.

Additionally, Kimosabe offers a design service to customers, to help place items and create spaces reflecting the spirit and authenticity of old Taos. "The New Mexican feel and way of life is so unique. These are wonderful materials with which to work."

The Sincerity with which New Mexicans have welcomed visitors for centuries is very evident from the moment one enters this special shop.
