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.
From a giant white buffalo to hand-woven rugs, this shop reflects the native history and customs of the area. Engage their specialists in conversation and you will learn much about native arts, traditions, and craftsmanship. An excellent place to purchase authentic Navajo rugs, complete with personal information about the weavers. If that is above your price point perhaps pottery, jewelry,... More
After reading the reviews on TA I was excited to purchase souvenirs from Richardson's. I was disappointed. If your looking for unique, reasonable and variety of souvenirs for family and friends look elsewhere. This place is more of a pawn shop. They do have a wide variety of rugs, saddles, guns and jewelry but that's about it. The best trading... More
If you think a Trading Post is postcards, dreamcatcher keychains, and 44 oz drinks, please stop out on the interstate and don't come to Richardson's, which is the last of a dying breed. Take the time to ask questions and appreciate the beautiful rugs and jewelry and other crafts that are sold there. Your curiosity will be repaid with hospitality,... More
