5 items & things pawn shops always buy

Pawn shops accept such a wide range of items but what are the most popular pieces that pawn shops always buy?

If we had to select five types of items that pawn shops buy then we would suggest these five:

Gold – the value of gold remains high which makes it an attractive item to sell. Gold also remains a popular metal for jewelry that people want to purchase which means that the resale value for pieces is good.

Gold offers variety in terms of its colour and quality meaning that there is something to suit all tastes and budgets, whether you prefer yellow, white or rose gold. As a metal, it lends itself well to all styles of jewelry and pawn shops widely accept all forms of jewelry including rings, necklaces, chains, bracelets, earrings and brooches. This is why gold is always top of our list of things that we buy.

Diamonds – they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, well that is because they are such a beautiful and elegant stone that is timeless compared to many other stones. Diamonds have retained their popularity with buyers (and us) so have also kept a good value. Your diamonds can be unset but in most cases, the diamonds we see are part of a piece of jewelry and the valuation will be based on the whole piece.

Watches – although fashions and technology have changed, a watch is still a desirable piece especially if you have a designer watch. With digital devices like phones and computers all around us, the need for a watch has changed and many wear them more as a fashion item or as a status symbol. This change has increased the desirability of some watches and impacted their value. This is why watches remain a good piece to buy for pawn shops.

Electronics – electronic goods have always been a staple item at pawn shops as technology moves on so fast that people always want to move on to the next thing. But there are always others that can’t afford the latest thing and are happy with older versions. Whether your electronics are TVs, consoles, games, laptops, tablets or cellphones, we are interested in them all as long as they are in a good working condition.

Designer handbags – For many, a designer handbag is a signal that they have made it which is why they are so desirable. Hence why a second-hand market for designer handbags so is so popular and you can get a good proportion of the original resale value back selling one if it is in a good condition.

So why not have a look around your home and see what items you have that you no longer need and bring them along to one of our stores to see how much money you can raise?
