Pawn shop customers come from all walks of life. Anyone who needs quick cash, as a result of unexpected bills or unforeseen financial issues, are potential pawn customers. The fees associated with a pawn loan are substantially less costly than the alternatives of overdraft charges or late fees. The best part in getting a pawn loan is instant cash with no credit check! Short term loans are based on the value of the collateral that you pledge and not your past credit history.

The History of Pawn
pawn brokerAs mankind's oldest financial institution, pawn broking carries on a tradition with a rich history. Pawn broking can be traced back at least 3,000 years to ancient China, and has been found in the earliest written histories of Greek and Roman civilizations. The Nursery Rhyme "Pop Goes The Weasel" refers to pawning. A weasel is a shoemaker's tool and to "pop" is to pawn. "That's the way the money goes... Pop goes the weasel. Queen Isabella of Spain pawned the crown jewels to finance Columbus' voyage to America. The word pawn originates from the Latin word "patinum" which means cloth or clothing. The French word "pan" refers to a skirt or blouse. In the early centuries, the principle assets people had were their clothes and borrowed money by pawning their clothing.
