Pawn shops are a great go-to when you need a few bucks quickly. It can be faster than a bank loan, cheaper than a payday loan, and in the end, you lose nothing. You get your pawned item back as soon as the loan obligation is fulfilled.

Pawnshops allow you to make money on items you have laying around the house. Things you already own. So even if you find yourself “cash poor” at the moment, it doesn’t mean you are broke or without resources.

Let’s take a look at what people pawn the most. Here is a breakdown.

  • Electronics – 34%
  • Jewelry – 13%
  • Clothing/Accessories – 10%
  • Tools – 8%
  • Collectibles – 8%
  • Musical Instruments – 5%
  • Guns and Firearms – 3%
  • Vehicles – -2% and
  • Other random items – 17%

what do americans pawn

You will find that offers on items vary from store to store for the very same item. Desirability of an item is based on the assessment not only of quality and condition but also of potential resale value (how easy it would be for the store to sell in the event that you do not come back to finish out your loan terms and reclaim your property).

Its good to shop around. Its also good to know by reputation who pays top dollar and who tries to get the lowest bid.

First Pawn Jewelry and Loan of Naples and Lehigh is known for their generosity. Our main goal is never to keep and sell your property. We would rather complete all contracts with all parties happy with the end result. Why? The answer is simple. You are more valuable to us as a repeat client than any one time forfeit could ever be. It just isn’t the way we operate.

If you have stopped into another shop and aren’t thrilled with their offer, don’t take it. You can always go back later after shopping around if indeed it turns out to be the best one.

Come see us! We have two convenient locations right here in Southwest, Florida. Let us assess your item or items and make you a fair market offer you can walk away happy with.
