Do you negotiate at pawn shops?
Not only is it perfectly acceptable to negotiate a lower price on pawn shop items, most pawn shops actively expect you to do so. Typically, pawn shops will stick their merchandise with a price tag that’s a little higher than what they need you to pay for it to make a profit.

How much can I get at a pawn shop?
At a pawn shop, you leave your property—the most commonly pawned items are jewelry, electronic and photography equipment, musical instruments, and firearms. In return, the pawnbroker typically lends you approximately 25% to 60% of the item’s resale value. The average amount of a pawn shop loan is about $75–$100.
Do you get more if you pawn or sell?
Decide if you’re pawning or selling. Often, you can get more money for your item by selling it. However, with a pawn loan, you can get the money you need, and you still get to keep your item. The pawnbroker may offer you more or less than what you’re asking for your item.
