Surprisingly many people still have never visited a pawnshop. There are many misrepresentations in the media as to what a pawn shop really is and what it isn’t. Pawnshops are wonderful businesses that help the economy of the community on a regular ongoing basis in more ways than your average retail establishment.

Pawnshops support the community in a number of ways.

Buying local and reusing – The first being that they don’t stock the store by outsourcing product creation to other countries or even to new creation at all. Gently used is the way to go here. Just because an item doesn’t have the original wrapper it doesn’t make it worthless. You were going to unwrap it when you got it home anyway, right?

Minimize Your Stuff – They help you keep your at-home stock of stuff down to a minimum. Why keep your closets, drawers, and shelves filled with items you may never use again? Especially when someone else might be looking everywhere for them? Bringing your unused items to the pawnshop to see if they might be worth selling is a great way to make space and extra cash at the same time.

Cash When You Need It – Pawnshops will give you a loan no questions asked. Pawn loans, unlink bank loans, are based on asset value, not credit. Credit is not checked or a factor in a pawn loan. You give us an item to hold of value and make agreed-upon payments to gain ownership back again. Once the loan is paid off you are free and clear the rightful owner again and merchandise is returned.

Creative Present Giving – Beautiful creative gifts that you cant find in the stores. That is one of the true beauties of these shops. You don’t just get whatever merchandise happens to be in season. You have a collection of amazing items that span the decades. This means your gift-giving gets more diversified and often times is even more appreciated.

Gold/Diamonds – Pawn shops like First Pawn Jewelry and Loan buys and sells gold, diamonds, and there precious metals and stones and we have a great time doing it. There is nothing like being surrounded by beautiful trinkets all day. We have collected quite the assortment. We are always looking for more as well. So whether you have a piece you may want to part with for the right price or you are looking for something to add to your collection and wardrobe we are the right store to check out!

Before you go shopping retail consider looking at the selection in your local pawnshops first. You just never know what you may find and how much you could save!
