Pawn Shop

A shop where one may pawn an item or buy items other persons have pawned. When one pawns an item, one receives a loan and gives the pawnbroker (the pawn shop's owner) possession of the item. One may retrieve the item within a certain period of time if one repays the loan with interest. If the loan is not repaid, the pawnbroker may sell the item in his/her shop. Because the pawnbroker already has possession of the item, he/she does not report non-payment of the loan and it does not affect the borrower's creditworthiness.
