The Top 5 Items That Pawn Shop Owners Love to Buy
Pawn shops are always interested in the rare, unique, and extraordinary. However, there are several specific items that will always catch a pawn shop owner’s eye, and are certain to fetch you the best value if you choose to sell or pawn.

Designer Items

If you have a high quality designer handbag or any other authentic fashion items from brands like Louis Vuitton, Vera Wang, Chanel, or others, you might be surprised to learn just how in demand they can be to pawn shop owners. In fact, the more exclusive the brand, the better the value!


Jewelry is another item that is always accepted by pawn shop owners. Everyone loves jewelry and it moves fast, which makes particularly rare and unique pieces especially valuable. For the best price, make sure every piece you’re interested in selling is clean and there is no visible or recognizable damage – although in most cases even jewelry with minimal flaws can still earn a great price. If you want, you can even do a bit of research beforehand to know what the market value of your piece is so you can go in knowing upfront how you plan to negotiate for.  


If you have any watches you no longer wear or need, chances are you can get a great deal on it at a pawn shop since most watches are made with premium materials that make even the lesser popular brands undeniably valuable. Of course, if you have designer watches made with silver, gold, or stainless steel with sapphire glass, those are always going to earn you the biggest payout.


Have some diamonds or other gemstones leftover from some older worn down jewelry? Take them to a pawn shop! Precious gems, like diamonds, never go out of style and are always valuable to pawn shop owners – even if you don’t have any jewelry or pieces to attach them to.


While not all pawn shops deal in firearms, at Traders Loan and Jewelry, we are licensed and registered to buy, sell, pawn, and store shotguns, rifles, handguns, and ammunition all under one roof. That means, if you’ve got them, we’re interested in any quality modern or antique guns or weapons you may have on hand!
