I echo all reviews ... HUGE assortment of *REAL* Native American arts and crafts - carvings, pottery, jewelry, rugs, blankets, heaps more. A lovely shop front on Route 66; the Richardson Family is still involved. A lively, thriving place serving the locals (pawn shop) and tourists alike. Excellent quality merchandise; fair prices. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful staff. I didn't... More

The other side of the store has new items including pots, weavings, jewelry and kachinas. Everything is high quality and prices are fair. The staff is well informed. Richardson's is one... More

A museum where you can buy anything. It is freaking awesome! Everything is top-notch and worth the extra buck to know that you're getting high quality, authentic items! Definitely go here (even if you don't plan on shopping), it's worth it!

Stayed in Gallup overnight and stopped by Richardsons Trading Company store to take a look. We were told by friends this was the place to shop in Gallup. We were greeted by Sue who happens to be the granddaughter of the owner. The store dates back about 100 years so this is significant. Her father is in his 90's and... More

On my last trip, my wife and I stopped by Richardsons. She was overwhelmed to say the least. She purchased several pieces and they we were given a private tour of the rug room. What a treat! It is a shame that the children of the weavers have not taken the trade. We were told that within 10-15 years it... More

We did not expect the excellent treatment we received when we went to Richardsons Trading. My wife and I are aficionados of all things western and we were not disappointed at Richardsons. Helping the local American Indians, we learned how trading posts and pawn really worked. Natives pawn so many items of great value and then take them back out... More

Want something from the southwest, want something Native American, want jewelry, pottery, rugs? This is the place to go. They have a huge selection of these items. The staff knows their business, and they have been in business for a long time. Try to get them to talk about their pawn business - very interesting and informative about southwestern culture.
