Aloha Friday - Pawn Shop Edition


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

I've loved Pawn Shops for years and have found some pretty neat things not to mention incredible bargains on genuine gemstone jewelry.  So of course, I love the new show, Pawn Stars featuring three generations of men running a pawn shop in Vegas. As a matter of fact, I really think a show like theirs is helping to take away the negative image pawn shops have had for years.

So here's my question:

Have you ever pawned or purchased anything at a pawn shop?  If so, share the details!

Nope, I sure haven't...my husband loves that show! He likes all those shows...even the one where they go looking for stuff in old barns etc.

No I haven't. We don't even have many of them here... just tons of second hand (junk) shops. I do love watching Pawn Stars on tv though. :)

I've never pawned anything before, but some friends of ours go pawn shop shopping all the time and come away with some amazing deals - one of these days we'll have to go with them and let them do all the bargaining... ;)

LOVE that show - we were introduced to it my by sister and her hubby when we were visiting them last summer! :)

No, I do not actually think I have ever been in a pawn shop. Not really sure where there is one in our area.

I can't remember ever pawning anything, but have bought a few new items there. My husband has bought a few used items.

I went to a few pawn shops as a kid but I have never bought or sold anything there.

I've looked at the comments and see that most have not been to a pawn shop. Add me to that list. :)

I like the Pawn Stars show, too. Don't know when it comes on, but will catch it once in a while.

I like the Antiques Road Show too.

Funny, I'm not big on shopping, though. :)
