Backpacks, shoes and clothes…the first day is right around the corner and you wonder “How will I make this work”?
Simply bring in any item(s) of value, along with a current photo id. We’ll have a short, friendly conversation about your situation and how much you need to borrow, and make every attempt to meet your needs based on the value of your merchandise. The loan is a private matter between us and your information is confidential, and both stay that way.
Our goal is for everyone to win; this was our foundation in becoming the best pawn shop in Norfolk, and it builds trusting relationships with return customers.
We provide loans on jewelry, firearms, power tools, hand tools and sets, sports equipment, HDTVs, electronics of all types including home and car audio, gaming systems, coins, you name it! We also buy merchandise outright, if you have items you no longer want or need, and just want to sell them. If you want to make BIG BUCKS fast, and have old, unwanted or broken jewelry, come get cash for your gold! We pay top dollar based on the current scrap value, which is currently a lot of $$$!!
In the hustle-and-bustle of our adult lives, it’s easy to lose sight of what really matters.
Many of us are now parents ourselves. The adoration for our children is a reflection of the same love our parents had for us and always will, regardless of how many years have passed. We are still their children, and owe who we are today to their timeless devotion.
Make this Sunday a special Mother’s Day, one she’ll remember always. If you think a gift of jewelry, like a necklace, pendant or birthstone earrings is outside of your budget, consider the huge savings to be found at a discount store. There are several in the area, but at American Pawn Gun and Jewelry Exchange we pride ourselves on being both the best pawn shop in Norfolk as well as having the best selection of preowned jewelry anywhere around. Anyone who’s been in our showroom can attest to that, as well as the lowest prices, and that Dennis is always ready to make a deal. We’re open thru Saturday at 6:30pm!
Roosevelt Gardens is right around the corner and has just about everything for mom. Stop by Norfolk Florist and pick out a bouquet of flowers (yes, they’re open this Sunday from 10-2), take her out for a nice dinner at Azalea Inn, or just sit and enjoy the weather with a couple of Penguin’s SnoBalls!
“All that I am I owe to my mother.” -George Washington
Happy Mother's Day!
Sure, you’ve still got a couple weeks, but don’t be that guy…the one who rushes after work to join the mob of people at Walgreens looking for a card (that says something good enough to make up for the fact that he is otherwise coming home empty-handed). Or even more regretful, the one standing in line and grossly overpaying for roses because he waited until the last minute. Here’s a fun fact from the National Retail Federation – 45% of men think that flowers are the ideal gift, however only 4% of women agree. Women want something shiny, sparkly, or both!
Don’t think that a small budget precludes a jewelry purchase for Valentine’s Day. If you’re a savvy shopper who knows how to get the best for less, you know that discount stores are one-upping retail jewelry stores, and for a good reason. Retail stores mark items up as much as 300% (even more for diamonds), and customers are finally taking notice. Let’s take a look at last year’s spending:
Out of a staggering 19.7 billion dollars spent on Valentine’s Day, the largest (4.5 billion) was spent on jewelry. One might assume that jewelry stores trumped the rest of the retail world leading up to February 14th. A few years ago this may have been true, but times are changing; here’s where the money was actually spent:
Jewelry stores accounted for only 11% of all jewelry sales. People are turning to stores such as pawn shops, where they get tremendous values on fine jewelry that would otherwise be out of the question. American Pawn Gun and Jewelry Exchange has worked hard to become the best pawn shop in Norfolk, and we pride ourselves on having one of the best selections of preowned jewelry and the lowest prices in Hampton Roads. Each piece is professionally cleaned, refurbished, and priced at 40% - 50% of what it would cost retail.
Regardless of your price range (aka your “love budget”), you don’t have to forego quality to find something you can afford. Whether it’s birthstone jewelry, a promise ring or 14K necklace, we have an abundance of gold and silver jewelry in the $100 to $250 range. Find huge savings on some of the more popular items such as gold or silver heart pendants (I just counted 41 in the display case), solitaire earrings (14 pairs and more in the back), and Pandora bracelets (5 as of today). If you’re looking for something more non-traditional, we also have vintage and unique items that you just won’t find anywhere else.
Keep it simple, avoid the last-minute crowd, and enjoy the ease of shopping with a small business and getting a great deal. There is something sitting on our shelf that she will absolutely love – and you will love the price at American Pawn Gun and Jewelry Exchange!
As much as you love her (or him), you don’t have to break the bank on Valentine’s Day. For the price of roses and chocolate, come to the best pawn shop in Norfolk and give a gift that will last forever!
Yes it has been a year already…Thanksgiving is really tomorrow! The fourth Thursday of every November gives us a chance to reflect on the past year and the people that have made life special for us in one way or another, including wonderful families and caring friends.

We would like to express our gratitude to our wonderful customers and community for your patronage. Have a very happy Thanksgiving and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!
Thanksgiving also kicks off the holiday season, and with Christmas right around the corner, it’s time to start shopping! While we all enjoy holiday feasts, spending time with loved ones and being off from work, gift shopping can be hectic in what is otherwise the most festive time of year. If you’re lucky enough to find a parking space at the mall, well, then you have to fight the crowds to find bargains (and regardless of sales, it can still become extremely expensive)! If you’re on a budget and fed up with it, have you ever considered knocking out some of your list in a friendlier (and much cheaper) environment? How about something non-traditional such as Craigslist, a surplus store, or a pawn shop?
We pride ourselves on selling the best for less, from stocking stuffers to a 60-inch HDTV. Check out our selection of gaming consoles for the kids. The fact that you bought a PlayStation 4 that was preowned as opposed to new won’t make one bit of difference to them, but the huge savings will make all the difference to you. How about car audio for your hubby? When he’s cruising around and cranking it up, he couldn’t care less that it used to be someone else’s gear…it’s his now (in fact, have it installed, and he’ll never even know)! If he’s not an audiophile, well I bet he’d smile to unwrap a new handgun or long gun – when it comes to men and their firearms, there’s no such thing as preowned – it’s all “new” to them!
If you’ve got a guitar to sell, or you saw something leaner and meaner on our website, we want to work with you to make it a win-win for everyone. We’ll make a top-dollar offer to buy your guitar outright or, if there’s something on our shelf that would look even better riding shotgun in your car when you leave, we’ll also consider and discuss with you any trade that you have in mind. Depending on your needs, you can also pawn your guitar for a short-term cash loan to get you out of a tight spot.
If you aren’t signed with that record label “just yet” ...you’ll appreciate getting the best for less at American Pawn Gun and Jewelry Exchange!
