Can I Pawn My Dog?
2 Minute Read
People ask us all the time, “What all can I pawn?” Of course we could go through the list, telling them about electronics, gold, musical equipment, jewelry, etc., but we like to leave room for our customers to get a little creative. So most of the time we give the standard answer, “Almost anything.”Did you catch that? Almost. There may be something unique or different that we would definitely pawn for our customers. On the flip side, there are a few things we just can’t take in on pawn.
Here’s a few questions that changed our habit of saying we will pawn ‘anything’ to saying we will pawn ‘almost anything’.
1. “Can I pawn my dog?”
Dogs. Cats. Squirrels. Hamsters. If it’s a pet, someone has probably tried to pawn it. We get this question on a weekly basis. Our standard answer? “We don’t pawn anything we have to feed.” So, no. We’re sorry but we cannot pawn Fido.
2. “Do you guys accept kids on pawn?”
This question usually gets asked when said ‘kid’ is acting up. Even if we did pawn kids. We’re not going to pawn the one who‘s all hopped up on Mountain Dew and chocolate. Like we said, if it eats, we don’t pawn it.
3. “Can I pawn my teeth?”
Yes. You read correctly. We have been asked if we pawn teeth. And guess what? Sometimes our answer is yes! From gold grills to a gold tooth. We’ve pawned it. Gold is gold, right? Still a strange question to be asked though.
4. “Can I pawn my Monopoly Board Game?”
OK so maybe this one is not as strange. But we have been asked this before. In fact, we’ve made an offer on this before. This wasn’t your run-of-the-mill $20 Monopoly game. This was a LUXURY Monopoly game. Check it out here. A wooden playing board, plated die-cast houses and hotels, gold foil-stamped game path, and 24 karat gold-plated game pieces. This board game was NICE! We made an offer, but unfortunately didn’t get the chance to buy the set.
5. “Will you take my air guitar in on Pawn?”
The infamous ‘Air Guitar.’ Our rather witty customers ask to pawn their air guitars all the time. We laugh, then promptly hand them ‘Air Cash’ in exchange for their merchandise. #Winning.
