Scrap Jewelry

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 may have had the most awesome stereo on the block, complete with a dual-cassette deck, turntable and speakers the size of an average refrigerator.

TVs at Metro Pawn

Many new audio video entertainment technologies have become commonplace in the recent years, but none have progressed as far and as quickly as video displays. After the introduction of High Definition television displays in 1998, the format has evolved and grown more capable ever since. We look back on standard DVDs and the monitors designed for that type of resolution as artifacts of the past. Transitioning from 640x480 lines of resolution to 1280x720 and 1080x1920 seemed amazing in its day, but now screens with 4096 x 2160 (4K) and 7680 × 4320 (8K) resolutions are becoming the standard. Content is never far behind, and in some cases is actually the driving force behind the emergence of these standards.

Whatever the case, coin collections can be worth a fair amount of money. If you are interested in pawning or selling your coins, or if you are looking for rare coins to add to your collection, Metro Pawn & Gun is the perfect place to visit.

‘Tis the Season!

If any of the drains in your home seem to clog repeatedly, that’s not normal, and you need to investigate why it’s happening. Generally, when household drains seem like they’re always slow or totally clogged, it’s because household members repeatedly allow things to flow into the drains that don’t belong there. Damaged plumbing can be a culprit, too, but more often than not, the problem is caused by user neglect.
