Bill Malone has traded with the Navajo and Pueblo tribes for 50 years. He speaks Navajo fluently, and has good relationships with Native American artists who sell him merchandise. Because he runs a one-person shop, his hours of operation fluctuate quite a bit. However, the...More

Took the opportunity to stop in here and was glad I did. His selection is very good, authentic and fairly priced. Knowledgeable and friendly, there was no pressure to buy. Beautiful selection of rugs, jewelry and kachinas. Very pleased with my purchase.

Hours are supposedly til 6 PM but were closed at 5 PM. Timed drive from Flagstaff s failure. Does not look impressive with the lights off. Sort of wonder about their ratings. Fortunately there are maybe a thousand other shops selling Indian products. O well.

There is no second-guessing the Native American authenticity of the merchandise in this store; Bill Malone deals directly with the artists and knows many personally. The jewelry prices here are second to none. Merchandise offered for sale is not necessarily "priced as marked"; be sure...More

We visited several stores in Gallup looking for Native American jewelry. Richardson's and Bill Malone's store are the only ones we found that represent true local artisans and quality authentic products. We met with Bill Malone and found him to be most genuine and very...More

Bill Malone is a rarity in the jewelry business: an honest guy and a genuinely friendly person. It was great meeting him and seeing his shop. Oh, and the prices were by far the most reasonable we had seen on our trip, which included Albuquerque...More
