To Pawn or not to Pawn, that is the question…

The modern pawn shop is a unique institution in today’s business world. It is a place where you can get a quick loan for items of value, or quick cash for items you wish to sell. You can also shop a robust and varied inventory of merchandise at remarkable prices.

Coin Collecting

Coin collecting is a hobby enjoyed by many people, young and old alike. Some focus on old coins, some on the newly minted. Others enjoy the variety of amassing coins from around the world, or a particular country of interest. Collectors range from the casual aficionado to the hardcore experts who will pay top dollar for what they seek. It can be a hobby that is easy on the checkbook or one that takes a fair level of financial investment. One thing is certain, if coins appeal to you, there is something to fit any and every budget or level of interest.

Preparing for Winter

Living in Minnesota has many advantages – beautiful scenery, many outdoor activities and a wonderful summer climate. But then there is winter – a welcomed season for skiers and snowmobilers, but also a bear for managing snow, ice and the typical winter commute. It’s not unusual to get pummeled by a fast moving blizzard between the times you go to sleep and when you awaken, leaving your driveway and roads buried in snow. While an armada of snow plows sets out to clear the roads in the wee hours of the morning, you still have to unearth your vehicle and clear a path to that road.

What is the Best Firearm for Home Defense?

Being able to defend your family within your home in the worst case scenario such as armed robbery or home invasion is critical. The hope is to never find yourself or your loved ones in such a situation, but if you do, are you prepared?

Frequently Asked Questions

If you need to borrow money quickly and without a credit check, the pawn/loan process can be very helpful. Bring in items of value as collateral to receive a pawn loan for an agreed amount, and then retrieve your item(s) upon repayment of the pawn amount within a specified period of time.

The Second Amendment

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed..." - Thomas Jefferson

These carefully crafted words define the natural rights of American citizenry to self-defense and resistance to oppression, internal or external, and the civic duty to act in the defense of the state should that become necessary.

Why Buy your Electronics at a Pawn Shop?

The world of consumer entertainment technology is an ever-changing and rapidly advancing field. No sooner than you buy your newest smartphone is there a better version of it available. You just finish setting up your cutting-edge home theater system, only to see the ‘updated’ version being advertised. That Blu Ray player that has barely a few movies played through it has now evolved to feature streaming capabilities. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with all of the ‘latest and greatest’ marketing, but some people seem to be on top of the trend at all times.

How to Turn What you Think is JUNK into MONEY

We’ve all heard the idiom “one man's trash is another man's treasure”, and it’s certainly an accurate statement. We can take it a step further and say that some things you once saw as treasure can end up being trash, so to speak. Back in the college days, you bought that brand new stereo system much to the envy of all your friends. It was replete with a dual-cassette unit and even a turntable, paving the way to production of endless ‘road-trip’ tapes. With a two channel amplifier and speakers the size of an average refrigerator, you were styling with the latest and the greatest. But times have changed.

Gold – Why do you need it?

Gold is a precious metal and fairly rare element that has been used throughout history as a monetary system in the form of coinage, in jewelry and other forms of adornment, and in other arts as well. Although the world monetary gold standard was abandoned in favor of a fiat currency system in the 70s, the value of gold persists and actually continues to grow in spite of this.

Guns – Why Pay Full Price?

Firearms are generally not inexpensive. They are an investment in personal security, any number of shooting sports, and your 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. Depending on the firearm, they can range from several hundreds to several thousands of dollars. If well taken care of, they hold their value and last a lifetime or more, as evident from specimens that may have been around during World War I and still function flawlessly today.
