It was just announced that Pawn Stars’ star Rick Harrison will be speaking at the GIA Symposium 2011. Rick Harrison is the owner of Gold and Silver Pawn shop which is the store featured on the hit show Pawn Stars.
Mr. Harrison is going to be on the panel called “Everything Old is New Again – The Appeal of Auction, Estate, and Vintage Markets”. Rick Harrison knows what he’s talking about when it comes to auction, estate, and vintage markets because he has run his local pawn shop for over 30 years.
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) wanted Mr. Harrison, not only because of his fame, but because of his knowledge. Who better to speak about vintage items than the star of Pawn Stars? He is also very comfortable in social situations including in front of a camera. Mr. Harrison should draw a large crowd.
