it is unfortunate but yes i have been in a pawn, when my oldest brother got locked, but the one i went in to is different, they hold your stuff for about 4 months, after 4 months they charge you intrest, then if you dont pay them back you will loose your stuff. i didnt want to loose my things so i paid the amount that i had pawed it for and i think two months intrest and i was one my way....

I have looked in the windows of a pawn shop before, but I have never been in one, and I have never had to use one. I have known a few people that have used them and then bought their jewellery back, and they live on it really well. They use them when they really need some money and so their jewellery is like an investment for them.

I too know of people that do the same thing, they will pawn their jewelry until they can get money to get it back out. Thus far I have not had to do this either, thank God for that.

I went with a friend of mine and a family friend of hers one time to pawn a keyboard I had for rent. You have to be careful with them as they try to swindle a deal to their liking.

Thank you. I am very sure that they do not want to give you very much for the hings that you pawn, that is why they are in business.

I have been to several pawn shops before. I have hawked some things for a bit of money that I needed right then. And I have bought a few things from there. I haven't been in awhile though.

I suppose that these pawn shops are real good places when you are in a bind. And looks like you can get some good deals there too.

I have been in one a few times. I have never sold anything at one or bought anything either. My husband bought some cd's at one once. I have heard you can get some really great deals at pawn shops. We don't have one in the town I live in though.

I too have heard you can get some good deals in the pawn shops. I see they have so much stuff in there. But I never really looked around at it all.

I got a couple of used video game systems from pawn shops. The only ones that I will buy from are the places that have checked them out or are going to give me 30 days to test it out and make sure that it works. You would be surprised at some of the things that people pawn. They had a special on A&E about pawn shops in Vegas and how they had everything from glass eyes to prosthetic legs.

I have been to them just looking around. No purchase. They seem to carry a variety of things.
