If Gallup had a museum of Indian art, this would be it!

There is no way to describe Richardson's - it is absolutely the biggest, most extensive collection of Indian (mostly Navajo) rugs, jewelry, fetishes, leather goods - most of it... read more

This place was recommended in several guidebooks but it was so expensive. It was basically just rugs, turquoise jewelry and saddles.

The inventory of items in this store cannot be surpassed. The service is friendly and very professional. Larry Fulbright took excellent attention to our needs. He went out of his way to make sure we had exactly what we wanted. Will go back there again.

Very authentic navaho fare , somewhat expensive , The selection is ok but Perry Null is much better. certainly the best and most authentic native american place on Route66. All the others are owned by middle eastern individuals who PRIVATELY employ navaho

I was looking to buy a cuff bracelet and the sales lady told me my wrist was too small for the selection they had and wouldn't show me anymore. When I asked the prices of the items, I didn't get an answer. The people weren't rude but they weren't helpful. I won't go back or recommend it either.

Do not miss this treasure of an emporium. Beautiful native jewelry including old pawn, unique collectibles and rugs, rugs and more rugs! All authentic. The building itself is museum quality. Some rooms have old tin ceilings. You could easily spend a hour or two poking around. Don't be turned off by the neighborhood and be sure to check it out... More

There is no way to describe Richardson's - it is absolutely the biggest, most extensive collection of Indian (mostly Navajo) rugs, jewelry, fetishes, leather goods - most of it having been pawned by Indians for ready cash. Peek in the back room and you will see hundreds, maybe thousands, of turquoise pieces hanging on the walls. It is truly mind-boggling.... More

Fantastic array of Indian jewelry. Antique, pawn, new and old. The woman that helped us, Wanda, was so well informed and helpful. Planning on a return trip soon.

It's impossible to even begin to describe the jewelry, pottery, Navajo rugs, and other relics that are housed in this store/trading post. Although this merchandise is for sale, it's mostly a place to stop, look, and learn about the beauty, history and culture of the very best Native American artists you'll ever find. Nothing in the Smithsonian can touch what... More
