Miniature pawn shop projects for dollhouses, roomboxes and dioramas

Pawnbrokers are popular because the customer can get money for goods, and buy the goods back within a specified time if he has earned the money to repay. If not, the goods are forfeited. 

Has someone created a pawn shop in miniature?

Also see pages with shop tag.

Research/ Inspiration

  • There is a furtiveness to the pawn shop, pehaps because the pawnbroker takes the chamce that the customer is not trying to fence stolen goods, or perhaps the desperation of customers.
  • Since the broker has possession of the goods, the loan does not affect the customer's credit rating. Items pawned include: jewelry, electronics, musical instruments, furs.
  • See the background in the movie of The Pawnbroker.  In the States, guns are sold within lawful criteria. Also see Charlie Chaplin in The Pawn Shop
  • St. Nicholas is the patron saint of pawnbrokers. The symbol of a pawnbroker is 3 spheres suspended from a bar.
  • Pawn Stars - reality show
