Growing up, I have this really weird misconception about pawnshops. When I was still young, I usually overheard it from my parents talking about pawning watches and jewelries whenever we would be needing additional money for tuitions fees and other stuff.

Watching TV and on how pawnshops are being portrayed could be another scenario, where usually the antagonist would be seen in front of a pawn shop in his or her most desperate situation. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the pawnshop itself is bad, in fact, it could be considered to be like a superhero that saves the day. I guess what strikes me the most is the people who goes there, in dire need to pawn a very valuable item just to have an ample amount of money to be used for a more important matter. As you might have know, letting go of something precious, is just sometimes heartbreaking.
