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.

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
