What items pawnshops buy
We all have so many items that we carry around or in our homes that can be pawned or sold to raise money through a pawnshop. Which item is best to use is really up to you as it will depend on what you are willing to part with and how much you what to raise.
Jewelry - Jewelry is a great pawn item as it can often hold a lot of residual value. As long as your piece is in a good condition you will be able to raise funds from gold, silver and good quality costume pieces. This includes watches, rings, necklaces, chains, charms, bracelets, earrings and brooches.
Accessories - Accessories including handbags, sunglasses, hats and belts are also items that be sold or pawned if they are in good condition and are desirable labels or brands.
