"Gold & Silver Pawn Shop" is the name of it, from here
Chum Lee degrades my synapses whenever I hear him speak. He should try out for Slingblade2.
I started watching this show a few days ago, I find the stuff that comes through the door pretty interesting.
I like the show. I almost wonder if it is one of the ones that Dave Atell visited when he had his Insomniac show because most of the store personal look familiar.
Seasone pass set, I loved how the old man complained about the cost of restoring the Lincoln, then would not sell it and kept it for himself.
I was shocked to see that 75% of the stuff that comes in the door they can't reach a deal on. I figured it would be a lot lower. I guess they must need to bring few quite a few people to make up each episode.
The only thing that would make this better is seeing how much the items sold for. I'd love to see someone buy the cannon or the boat. Or even from the latest episode, what ring did the guy trade for?
This. But I figure they don't want to piss off the people selling them stuff with how much money they are making off the stuff.
I think the woman with all the autographs should have held out for her price; I think she would have got it.
I think the boat thing was BS. I'm sure it was checked out prior to him buying it. The Dad and Grandpa were so adimant about not buying boats I'm sure a kid that grew up in that invironement wouldn't shell out 16.5K that easily especially with the both of them sitting in the store.
I think you're right that he definitely knew the "no boats" policy, but I also think he only bought it because the camera was on him.
why wouldnt the guy buy the ejection seat for 300.00 then have it appraised? if you dont have the guts to lose 300 find another line of work
It just sounds like a good "story line" the way they showed it, I doubt that's how it really went down.
i guess so. i dont think they have the customers standing there while an expert appraisal is being done.
I was talking about the boat. On the ejector seat why not go into your office call your source and he could have easily determined it was possibly worth more than $300.00. Having the guy there when the appraisal done can only end up bad for you.
I have to laugh at the reaction of the sellers after an appraisal is done.
Appraiser: Your thingy is worth $40,000!
Seller: There you go, it's worth $40,000! I want $40,000!!
Most of them seem to come to their senses after Rick explains the pawn shop business model to them.
Well they did show in one of those multiple choice commercial break questions that 75% of customers don't reach an agreement with the shop.
I love pawn shops...they're my hobby. I stop by about half a dozen a week.
This is a great show, but it seems like they've had some ringers come in...like they know some people with some interesting things and they have them come in...It's getting a little "by the numbers" when something cool comes in...they like it but don't know if it's real...then they have to get it appraised...end of scene...five minutes later the appraiser is there, get a price (in front of the customer no less) and then negotiate.
I'd think the owners would tell the people doing the appraising to not tell the customer the price.
Plus, how many 'experts' does a real pawn shop owner really know? This guy knows a pro who knows everything about the more obscure things in society.
To be fair, this is Vegas. I imagine that a LOT of stuff gets pawned there, and the Old Man has worked there for 30+ years. You don't think in 30+ years he made some contacts?
Just started watching this recently. Love it. My favorite has to be Chumley
