Pawn shops are generally interested in items that they can resell for a profit, or items that can be used as collateral for loans. They typically only accept items that they believe they can resell, so not all items will be of interest to them. Additionally, the amount of money that you will receive for your item will depend on a variety of factors, such as its condition, age, and market demand. Some of the most commonly accepted items at pawn shops include:


Pawn shops are always interested in gold, silver, and diamond jewelry, as well as other precious gems and stones. When a customer brings jewelry to a pawn shop, the pawnbroker will typically assess the item’s condition and determine its market value based on factors such as the type of metal, the weight of the item, and the quality and size of any gemstones or diamonds. Based on this assessment, the pawnbroker will then offer a loan amount to the customer, which is typically a percentage of the jewelry’s appraised value.


Pawn shops may accept working, newer generation electronics such as laptops, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and televisions. Electronics can be sold quickly and easily and they tend to be in high demand, especially if they are newer models or have specific features.

Musical Instruments

Pawn shops often accept guitars, keyboards, drums, and other musical instruments in good condition. Musical instruments tend to hold their value well, especially if they are well-known brands in tip top condition and are generally easy to authenticate and assess for value, making them a reliable item to loan against.


Pawn shops often accept tools such as power tools, hand tools, and other everyday lawn or home equipment. Tools are typically high-value items that can be resold quickly and easily if the pawn shop cannot recover the loan. They are often in high demand, especially if they are well-known brands or in good condition.


Pawn shops may also be interested in buying firearms because they are a popular item among collectors and enthusiasts. Depending on the type, age, and condition of the firearm, it may have significant historical or collectible value that can make it a sought-after item for collectors of antiques.

It’s important to note that pawn shops may have their own specific areas of interest or expertise, so it’s always a good idea to call ahead or check their website to see what items they are most interested in accepting at that time. Additionally, the amount of money that a pawn shop will offer for an item will depend on a variety of factors, including the condition of the item, its market value, and the current demand for that particular item.
