How Do You Determine An Item’s Worth?
At Traders Loan and Jewelry, we’re always excited to see what you have, but that doesn’t mean everything you have will all be worth the same. So, to help you decide what you should sell/pawn to make the most cash today, we’ve made it easy for you and listed out all the best, most valuable items we take below!


Whether you’ve got a cache of flat screen TVs lying around somewhere, or the latest gaming console you want to get rid of, we’ll take it. In fact, fully functional electronics can actually fetch a pretty fine price depending on the precise condition they’re in. Just remember, in order to maximize the value of your old or unused electronics, you should make sure you include all the remotes, cables, and accessories that come with them.  

Gold & Jewelry

Gold and jewelry are always among the most popular items in pawn shops, thanks to their high materialistic value, which means they almost always procure a pleasing price. Typically newer earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and watches are among the most popular and are worth the most, although antique jewelry is recognized for its vintage charm. However, if you want to try and make the most off your mementos, you should stick to trying to sell anything that’s considered trendy, any high-end designer pieces, or anything with precious gemstones. Generic pieces and costume jewelry will not usually be worth much.


Anyone who plays a musical instrument knows they aren’t cheap, and depending on the instrument you play it can also take up quite a bit of space as well. That’s why, if you’re no longer in need of your drum set, piano, guitars, violins, keyboards, trumpets, or any other musical instruments in your possession, you should consider turning them over for a hefty bit of cash at Traders Loan and Jewelry.

Of course, anything you have to sell, our professionals at Traders Loan and Jewelry are always more than happy to take a look. After all, you may just have a hidden treasure in your life and not even know it!
