My wife an I went to Richardson’s Trading Post in Gallup New Mexico.
They have the largest selection of rugs in the Southwest on display.
Richardson’s has a very large rug room they have over 3000 rugs stock they also discount the rugs during the Crown point rug auction weekend.
I talked to the salesman at Richardson’s who has been there for many years.
He said when he was young he worked at the bank next door to Richardson’s. Sometimes a weaver would come in with their rugs to trade for money.
He would tell the weaver to wait a minute.
Then run next door to see Mr. Richardson and ask him if he would buy the Rug, and for how much.
Then he would run back and buy it from the weaver.
They also have a large supply of dental of Dead Pawn Navajo Jewelry and Rugs.
We bought one of them a Dead Pawn Two Gray Hills rug for $600 in a Kachina doll you can see the photos.
