We love what we do and sometimes that spills over into things like this crazy video we posted on our Facebook page. It proves that you really never do know what you’re going to find in a pawn shop!
Example one is the group of photos below showing a few of our costume jewelry pieces that we sell for just $1-$10 each. We also have a large variety of new Bestsey Johnson jewelry. Hit up our Facebook page to see it.
Capital Pawn is excited to announce that Seth Gold from Hard Core Pawn of truTV will be visiting and meeting Capital Pawn customers on Saturday, December 3rd from 11am-1pm.
The cheer team from Stayton High School will be helping with the event, and a portion of the day’s proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity to help build a home for a veteran.
Seth is already giving away gear as people respond to the event via Facebook, and Habitat for Humanity will also be giving away door prizes on December 3rd! Capital Pawn will be giving away door prizes as well, and if you invite people to the event, you will be entered into a drawing to win Capital Pawn swag (see some swag below).
We encourage you to RSVP for the event here or on the front of our website.
The owners had the pleasure of being on air with both Seth and Les Gold during Seth’s Gold Tone podcast at CBS Radio in August. You can listen to it here. Look for August 16th, Pawnbrokers Unite if you’d like to listen.
As we traveled this summer to several pawn shops and visited with pawn shop owners from across the nation at Pawn Expo, we found that Capital Pawn has some friends who are widely acknowldeged as an expert in our industry and demonstrate a devotion to charity not often attibuted to our industry.
Capital Pawn here in Salem, Oregon helps support many small businesses and organizations. One such organization is ConquerChiari.org.
Our friend, Chantiell, has Chiari Malformation and has organized the Walk to Conquer Chiari here in Salem. Chiari is a malformation of the brain that causes pain and a wide range of other symptoms.
This month is Chiari Malformation Awareness month. Capital Pawn has donated in order to help raise money for the awareness, research, and education about this neurological disorder. The walk was held on September 17th at Salem’s capitol building and was a success.
Chantiell speaks in the photo on the left and the whole group can be seen in the right photo.
If you want to know more about Chiari and hear a story of hope, watch this video of Piston’s Dancer, Nicole Josey.
Additionally, if you would like to donate click here, or if you would like more information about how you can help, click here. If you would like more information about the walk next year, or you want a point of contact for helping in the future, please see the document below.
