Or does such a thing exist?
ive never heard of anyone in ireland running one but they exist in other countries
u would have to be strict on id or ud have a shop full of stolen goods in no time which the guards would be liable to seize
i think the way it works in other countries is someone comes in with a item worth say 500euro
u give them 250 for it and the option of buying it back for 30 days for say 300
if they dont show within 30 days u sell the item for 500 to who ever
I used to make up newspaper ads for a few of these years ago I think there is pretty much 1 guy in Dublin who runs a few shops and is involved with antique shops too. I'll see if I can find the name of the shop and post it up.
Yeah its Carthy Pawnbrokers.
