Great for viewing many items and learning about native art. Prices aren't inexpensive for most items and they drive you crazy carefully hiding the prices so you have to ask to see different pieces. Way too time consuming and I run out of patience especially if/when the store is busy. It was my first and only visit there.

We got better service when we were there 12yrs ago, they are into profiling the customer and that is the degree of service that you will get, the lady that was dealing with my wife was a snooty old thing, I tried to tell her that she knew what she wanted and money didn't matter, but she kept going back...

Richardsons Trading Company is a great place to view Native American crafts and marvel at the skill of the artists/weavers. It is also a great place to learn. It is not a great place to purchase items. Even with their two-thirds off Labor Day Sale price, items are way over-priced. We expect to pay a fair price for rugs, pottery,... More

We like to shop in antique stores and so we stopped in to Richardsons since we had seen the signs. But much of the stock was in rooms that were closed off to the public. You could see it through the windows, but there was no way to access it without a clerk and they pretty much ignored us while... More

If you want the Navajo jewelry and all things Navajo experience (rugs, baskets, etc.), this is the place to visit! Every kind of jewelry, rugs, and baskets + a lot more that you would ever want. Friendly, helpful employees, and a huge store!

Richardson's is an amazing place. I was a bit wary, as it is a pawn shop but don't let that stop you. As I found out, pawn shops and trading posts have a long history in the Indian communities and provide necessary financing in the community.Goods are held secure for some time and can be redeemed. Pawns are declared "dead"... More

I love this place and make the 12 hr journey just to shop here. The Richardson family and their employees are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I have never been treated poorly. The sheer volume of merchandise is overwhelming, plan plenty of time to take it all in. Be sure to also explore the displayed private collection pieces. This place isn't... More

Sad to see so many local families pawning their treasures. Beautiful handmade jewelry and Navajo Rugs. Look around at the shops before choosing, items here are heavier with much more detail.

A glimpse back into the trading posts of old...still operational as such, with Native American artisans dropping in with wares and old pawn pieces. The collection here is incredible - silverwork, blankets, baskets, Kachina dolls. Even if you're not in the market to purchase, it's WELL worth your time to drop in and take this all in! Friendly, knowledgeable staff... More

We were so excited to come and check out this trading company after reading reviews on Trip Advisor... Unfortunately this place is closed on Sunday as is many other places in Gallup. I was unable to find their store hours on website
