Capital Pawn Loans, Buys, Sells, and Trades

Capital Pawn Loans, Buys, Sells, and Trades

Did you know that we buy all sorts of items at Capital Pawn? We are always looking for gold and silver whether it is old, ugly, and broken; or beautiful, contemporary, and wearable; or a combination of those qualities, our qualified brokers will take a look at your items and assess how much Capital Pawn will loan on them or how much cash we will pay for the items. Capital Pawn also purchases firearms of all types, DVDs, gaming systems and games, laptops and tablets and iPads, high-end cameras, and much more.

Take a look at our interview with South Salem Business District and you can see the items Capital Pawn pays cash for on a regular basis. As a matter of fact, did you know that the Capital of the Capital Pawn name means cash? In fact, investopedia.com defines capital as

1. Financial assets or the financial value of assets, such as cash

While capital can mean various things, it depends on context and spelling. If one googles capital, this is the result:

1. The most important city or town of a country or region, usually its seat of government and administrative center

2. Wealth in the form of money or other assets owned by a person or organization available or contributed for a particular purpose such as starting a company or investing

Capital Pawn is situated in Salem, the capital city of Oregon, and Capital Pawn is in the business of loaning capital, cash, to individuals and small businesses. Our name is twofold: city of the seat of government and cash!

Let’s define the word pawn as well, so we have the whole of Capital Pawn defined. Pawn means to pledge; to loan; an item held as security in exchange for cash or capital (there’s that word again).

So there you have it: Capital Pawn means Money to Loan! A fun fact, however, is that we also buy many valuable items from the public and we sell everything from stunning wedding sets to iPads. If you haven’t taken a look at the video yet, do so and note the background; we buy, sell, loan, and trade a wide variety of items, so come on down and take a look around in person!!

Capital Pawn – 4th of July

Capital Pawn Loves Holidays!

Capital Pawn & the Fourth of July

Here at Capital Pawn we love holidays as much as we love guns, gold, and jewelry. July 4th is especially meaningful to us as this patriotic holiday allows for INDEPENCE. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do best every day (giving you money for you diamonds, gold, and guns and giving you screaming deals on jewelry, guitars, and iPods – etc-) in any other country. With that being said, one can understand why we take the 4th off and allow the team at Capital Pawn to celebrate with family and friends. They have earned a little quality rest and relaxation.

The team at Capital Pawn wishes everyone a very safe and joyful 4th of July!

Here’s a little bit of history about the Fourth of July from one of our favorite resources, http://www.history.com

Variously known as the Fourth of July and Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with typical festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.
