Pawn Shopping

Holiday pawning is popular according to News 8 Austin:
"We have bracelets, earrings, rings, men's, women's, children's, watches, Rolexes, TVs, CDs, DVDs, computers, tools, guns," Vargas said.

The staff of Action Pawn in Round Rock said their store rarely finds itself this well-stocked. They said they've had an 11 percent increase in loans.

"It's been busy as far as sales and as far as people needing a little extra money to make it through the week. With the holidays ... to have an unexpected family member to stop by. So they need money for extra groceries or gas," Vargas said.
I think I know a couple of people that made a living in college by selling goods to pawn shops.  

Any of you guys ever buy jewelry from a pawn shop?  You ain't gots to lie.
