what price someone puts on something is an opinion. Not everyone will agree
with that opinion. But it is subjective……..

you aren’t ever obligated to sell any item you have to a pawnbroker and we are not
a bunch of thieves. But from pawnshop to pawnshop everyone is different on there
offers depending on there knowledge and location influences pricing as well. So to make a blanket statement that we are all a bunch of crooks isn’t fair.
