It was closed up when we drove by, but we still took pictures and glanced at the memorabilia outside. Interesting closeup of old machines, gas pumps, and signs

Be sure to drive all the way through town to find the Tucumcari Trading Post. Gary, the owner is a charming host willing to barter to make sure you load up the treasures you're after. You'll find authentic memorabilia along with new items mixed in. A fun stop for the whole family!

If you like the Disney movie cars, then you have to drive down Route 66 through Tucumcari. Although a lot of businesses have closed, their is plenty to see. The Trading Post at the west end of town is a must! Tow Mater's '55 Ford Tow Truck sits out front ready to get your picture taken while sitting on it.... More

I grew up on route 66 and the Tucumcari Trading Post is an authentic stop representing the old highway. Gary's friendliness and helpfulness is a refreshing example of an era that is quickly passing away. This is a great place to stop, browse, have an interesting conversation and pick up a few items from the extensive collection. This is a... More

I have already reviewed this wonderful interesting spot. Unfortunately I did not give it a 5 star rating which it clearly deserves. Lots of wonderful items, great friendly service....Love this place and will definitely be back. My sincere apologies for mistakenly giving a lower rating.

I go out of my way to stop at Tucumcari Trading Post and see Gary - his collection of antiques and collectibles for the home or the garage is nothing short of mind blowing! I always see something I want (and maybe even need) and by the slightest chance, if he does not have a particular item I am looking... More
