I have been shopping at Richardson's for over thirty years. It has only gotten better the selection and quality of their merchandise is unparalled. It is located on old Highway 66, several items are museum quality. I live in Taos, New Mexico well know for it's art. Richardson's far surpasses any store of similar goods in Taos. A gem that...

As a "novice" buyer, my big fear is being sold a bogus item. A few locals all suggested this company. Larry put me at ease and I knew I was being sold authentic items. I've read other places have better prices. I'll pay a bit more to be sure. If I knew more perhaps I would shop around, but I... More

Staff was personable and helpful. So much to look at. The rug room is amazing and educational if you just ask a few questions.

We enjoyed looking around, and we did purchase a few items, but the prices are not as good as some other locations in Gallup. It's definitely worth a visit.

This is the largest, most complete selection of Native Art that I have ever seen in one place. No matter what you are looking for (except cheap,fast, souvenirs) you will eventually find it in this fabulous store. Take some time to explore this store if you love native arts. The staff is so knowledgeable. There are specialists in any department.... More

We were very impressed with the quantity and quality of the Navajo rugs at Richardson's. The historic trading post was definitely worth stopping in to see, but we were disappointed at how overpriced their rugs were. Even with their 2/3 off "sale", their prices were much higher for similar quality and sized rugs that we have bought other places. This... More

Visiting Richardson's was like a personal interactive museum tour. Our "sales assoc", actually more like a docent, took us through all the rooms and thoroughly explained the role of trading posts, active pawn, and various intricacies of Navajo weaving. It was a delightful experience and extremely educational. We purchased a Katchina doll. Highly recommend!!

Richardson's - pretty much like all the other tourist traps in Gallup, N.M. The only real deals in this "give us your money town" is Earl's on East Highway 66. If you know a little about the item or items you are interested in, you can ask intelligent questions of the artist. But stay clear of this overpriced tourist shop!... More

I called the store to ask questions about any discounts and the person who answered was not helpful. He hung up while I was still talking. He sounded hurried and impatient. I had to call back a second time and this person with an accent was not very nice over the phone.
