“Spectacular ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

I love this place and make the 12 hr journey just to shop here. The Richardson family and their employees are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I have never been treated poorly. The sheer volume of merchandise is overwhelming, plan plenty of time to take it all in. Be sure to also explore the displayed private collection pieces. This place isn't just a store. It's a unique piece of history.

“Turquoise & Navajo Rugs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Sad to see so many local families pawning their treasures. Beautiful handmade jewelry and Navajo Rugs. Look around at the shops before choosing, items here are heavier with much more detail.

“A Must-See While in Gallup!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

A glimpse back into the trading posts of old...still operational as such, with Native American artisans dropping in with wares and old pawn pieces. The collection here is incredible - silverwork, blankets, baskets, Kachina dolls. Even if you're not in the market to purchase, it's WELL worth your time to drop in and take this all in! Friendly, knowledgeable staff - give Richardson's a look!

“Closed.. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We were so excited to come and check out this trading company after reading reviews on Trip Advisor... Unfortunately this place is closed on Sunday as is many other places in Gallup. I was unable to find their store hours on website

“Route 66”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

I was shopping for an authenic Eagle dancer kachina and found the staff to be very helpful in my decision and selection was almost overwhelming. She started by explaining the various differiences between the Hopi, Zuni and Navajo styles and my purchase was the Hopi style which I have wanted for years. Price might have seemed a little high until I looked at the artist detail. All hand carved, no frills for decoration and will be displayed in my home for years to come. Enjoyable experience and look forward to a return trip to add to my collection.
