This is Jack and his cow Sally. Jack needs a bit of money.
Down in the village of West Haven there lies a place called Express Pawn.
Jack: “Dear kind sir, I hear that this is a place where I can sell my gold and find great treasures.”
Sir: “You have heard right.”
Jack: “I would like to trade my cow Sally for those magic beans on the shelf.”
Sir: “Gladly, we have been in search of a friend for Monsieur Bacon. I believe Sally is worth that can of Magic beans. I will accept your deal!”
The next morning, to no one’s surprise, a beanstalk had grown tall into the sky.
Better than gold, better than cows; at the top of the stalk a golden chicken he found.
From the top of the stalk Jack was heard to shout, “Thank you Express Pawn for the best deals around!”
Jack is smiling ear to ear because he just got top dollar for his chicken at Express Pawn.
Sally and Bacon say, “Come on down to Express Pawn and sell us your gold!”
Pawn shops are great places to find old vinyls, music books and instruments. On unique occasions a pawn shop may become the temporary home of a rare music treasure like a vintage guitar or legendary recording contract signed by the artists themselves. You might find a record signed by Joni Mitchell or maybe a vintage limited edition Gibson guitar. Maybe you are a collector or maybe you are just a music nerd; either way, you will never know what musical treasure awaits until you start your hunt.

Searching the couch cushions for loose change? That long-lost dime might be worth more than you think! We all know that the price value of a dime is 10 cents; but with the rising cost of silver, all dimes are worth at least $1.57! Silver is not the only thing that makes these coins valuable: rare dates, mint marks and design varieties can make dimes well worth over a hundred of dollars. In fact, a draped bust dime from the late 1790s to the early 1800s can be worth up to $400. Time to search through those old coins and see what you can find!
