The Advantages of Buying Gold at a Pawn Shop

When purchasing gold coins, bullion or jewelry, pawn shops are an excellent option. If you go to a jewelry store, you are most certainly paying top dollar for whatever you buy there, even if it is advertised as “on sale”. Coin shops also tend to charge maximum prices for their goods, and understandably so – they are in it to make money, and their costs are likely higher than what pawn shops can acquire certain items for. Another factor to consider is that the variety of inventory at a pawn shop is usually more diverse. Retail stores often have a fairly set inventory – they carry certain products and then reorder them once they sell. A pawn shop may not have two of the same item, nor might an item that is there today be there tomorrow. Many customers will visit their favorite shop frequently as not to miss that ‘special’ item that might be gone before they know it.

Tips for Pawning Items at the Pawn Shop

Pawning” is a process in which you give the pawn shop an item in exchange for a cash loan. For example, you might pawn your television as collateral for a $100 loan.  If you repay the loan by a specified date after you pawn the item, you can retrieve your TV. The loan repayment amount will include interest and fees that are typically regulated by the state. If you don’t repay the money on time, the pawn shop takes ownership of the TV and can offer it for resale.  Most of the items pawned are reclaimed by their owners, but some are forfeited and provide inventory for the pawn shop to sell. Pawn shops also purchase items outright to resell.
