In general, you can pawn virtually anything that has value. Exact items will vary from shop to shop, but as a general rule, universally accepted items include electronics, musical instruments, jewelry and antiques. Pawnshops have to ensure that they do no accept stolen property which means that you’ll want to carry proof of purchase for your items when you bring them in to pawn.
Most pawn shops will not accept items that are obvious replicas, such as fake designer purses. They also generally do not accept books or clothes, either. Yet pawn shops do accept gold jewelry. Most pawn shops aren’t interested in watches unless they are valuable. If you have a Rolex, Cartier, Chanel or Piaget watch then you might have some luck, but otherwise the pawn shop will probably not be interested. Most pawn shops will also accept coins and currency like silver dollars, half dollars and American eagles. Rare paper money is usually taken, as well.
Pawn shops will also buy power tools that are in good shape. Most of the popular brands include DeWalt, Milwaukee and Bosch. If you’re looking to pawn a circular saw or a power drill, they will probably be accepted. Computer equipment and printers are often taken at pawn shops, too. Televisions are generally accepted, as well as video game consoles, such as PlayStations and Xbox devices.
