Nothing like it anywhere for sheer volume, variety, quality, information and service. Undoubtedly Native American artisans are masters in so many materials and styles; Richardson's is a monument to their creativity. We also were helped by Rose, who told of the history of the huge store (perhaps it should be called a museum), how pawn works for locals, what is... More

Very interesting collection of Indian silver and jewellery and the rugs are magnificent. The staff are very knowledgable and helpful but we found the prices a bit on the high side. I can appreciate that a lot of work goes into the making of these items, but I would prefer to pay the craftsman, not the retailer.

If you think you just happened to wander in during a 2/3 off sale you're obviously a newbie. For as long as I can remember, most trading posts and pawn shops in the southwest have always priced things at 3 times the asking price. Then you can start haggling from there. If you think the rugs and jewelry at Richardson's... More

My visit to Richardson's Trading Post and Pawn was extraordinary! I had looked at YouTube videos & visited their website, but neither prepared me for the adventure I encountered. Even now, it boggles the mind the incredible sheer amount of guaranteed authentic Native American arts available here. Yes, this a 'true trading post', run as it was & has for... More

We visited Gallup in August 2014 and first place we went was Richardsons as I was looking for a Navajo rug (in a restricted colour range due to recent recovering of couches in living room). Larry pulled out lots of rugs for me to look at. The ones he showed me were beautiful, good quality and in my price range... More

We stopped at Richardson's since we had read about it in various publications. It is a very quaint store with a huge inventory of American Indian made jewelry and pottery. Richardson's also has a massive selection of hand-woven rugs. Larry worked with us to answer our questions on the rugs we were interested in. He was very knowledgeable about the... More

This place is amazing! The most beautiful rugs, turquoise, western collection and art I have ever seen. I could look all day and have to make myself leave. I bought a cigar store Indian out of the window several years back on a layaway plan and it is in my living room. I won't go through Gallup without stopping. It's... More

There are a lot of historical displays at this store. They also have a fantastic selection of Indian items form the Zunis and Navajos. The employees are very helpful. This is a landmark trading post.

If you are looking for anything and I mean anything go to Richardsons Trading Post. Whether it's jewelry, pottery, belts, rugs etc. they have it all. A great collection of "Old Pawn" jewelry is available for purchase.
