Meet Bonnie and Chrissie

Bonnie Fleming and Chrissie hughesIn 1990, Bonnie Fleming, a community volunteer, wife and mother, was looking for a career that combined sales, travel, cooking and home. After learning about the Aga, she developed a business which uniquely combined all of her passions. Bonnie devised a cooking demonstration which spotlights the ease of Aga cooking and allows others to taste the Aga difference. Her demonstration is now used by dealers and distributors all over the country. For many years, she has taken Aga owners to England and France to see behind the scenes of Aga, visit the factory, the foundry and to attend cooking schools.

Bonnie has been featured in Southern Living, The Charlotte Observer, The Business Journal, Builder-Architect and The Wall Street Journal and is widely recognized as the Aga guru in the United States. She has been the top Aga Cooker distributor in North America for almost 20 years!

After a 7 year career in public relations, Chrissie Hughes, decided to join her mother in the Aga business and opened Aga Thyme, a retail outlet for Aga. Mother-and-daughter team, Bonnie Fleming and Chrissie Hughes have poured their hearts and souls into the store, which is a reflection of their tastes and high standards.


Meet Som and Luther

If Som is the right hand at Aga Thyme, her son Luther is the left hand. Som has been working full time at Aga since 2004. Luther has worked part-time for over four years and started full time when he graduated in June 2009. Luther does all our packets, prices merchandise, and handles all shippings and mailings.

Som IS Aga Thyme. She arrives every morning with a smile and lots of energy. She manages the shop and the office, handles all cookware, parts, and service calls. As you can imagine, she has a wealth of Aga information. She can tell you how to clean your Aga, bake your cookies and change your power fan. We love you, Som!
