Richardsons Trading Company (Post) is an amazing treasure trove of Native American art and culture. It would be impossible for me to describe what they have because it would be easier to say, if it's Native American, it's there. Jewelry, weavings, kachinas, pottery more than...More

This has the reputation of being a must see sight in Gallup; king of the trading posts. The original Mr. Richardson had just passed away shortly before we arrived, so we missed the experience of meeting him; but the stuff here is really incredible. No...More

This is a huge store with a remarkable amount of inventory. It's worth the visit just to see the variety of Indian art available.

This place is large. My husband and I visited on a snowy day at the end of the day. The gallery was closed. I think you can discover more on better weather days. They have a large selection of every thing: silver jewelry, turquoise, Navajo...More

Gallup is the world HQ for native-made turquoise pieces, and Richardson's is the grand dame in town. It is a well-know store and a must-see for folks interested in turquoise. It's fun to look around and admire the richly-decorated native artworks. Don't be afraid to...More

I bought my grandmother a silver cross to wear on a necklace. It had "turqoise" stones in it. I looked at their selection in the store. The lady showing me the options was not very friendly. She was kind of arrogant. She assured me they...More
