Pawn Stars Mixin’ It Up With iCarly Stars

Without speculating or assuming about the fans who routinely watch Pawn Stars and their taste in cable TV shows, I think it would be safe to assume that many of you have kids that watch iCarly, a Nickelodeon sitcom. The reason for bringing this up is that the most unanticipated and unexpected move has been announced; and you won’t believe it.

Later in 2012, yours truly, the boys from Pawn Stars – Rick Harrison, Corey Harrison and Chumlee (Austin Russell) –  have a guest spot on an episode of iCarly; unbelievable. These pawn shop celebrities in their own right have really crossed some influential paths just by being who they are in their own cable hit series. As unlikely as it may seem, the stars of iCarly will be hosting these guys as part of a story line that takes Sam and Carly on a road trip to the star-studded gambling capitol of the world, Las Vegas.

As it has been released, the need for some serious cash, quick, Sam and Carly stumble upon the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, aka Pawn Stars store, trying to pawn some stuff. From here, only your imagination can guess what will actually happen. Rest assured, any ideas that Chumlee will be any different should be tossed out the window. He needs to be himself, that’s what works in Pawn Stars, and it will work with iCarly as well. Perhaps, some serious teasing and taunting by Rick and Corey can yield some Three Stooges comedy to really add some humor to the set.

How ever it goes, it is a sure bet that the cast and crew of two very popular series will have a great time together. What else could anyone expect? When the worlds of Pawn Stars and iCarly collide, all bets are off, even in Las Vegas, on what comedy will ensue. In fact, I wonder if they have considered the combination of Spencer (the incredibly funny character from iCarly) and Chumlee experiencing a hillarious interchange would turn out? Well, I guess we will have to just tune in to find out.

Providing the best online shopping experience, a pawn shop provides the opportunity for anyone to sell designer handbags, pawn gold, or receive loans for jewelry. To sell watches Boca Raton folks have looked for the chance to rid themselves of unwanted pre-owned watches. They have chosen to pawn Rolex watches to take advantage of our great prices for pre-owned watches. The wonderful patrons of Boca Raton sell jewelry of the luxury nature quite often, so a great selection is comprehensive and incredibly beautiful to say the least.

Chumlee of Pawn Stars – Goofy By Nature Or Acting?

LAS VEGAS, NV - DECEMBER 01:  Austin 'Chumlee'...

Chumlee has no fear when it comes to expressing himself and letting the world know he knows how to enjoy life.

There was a Twitter post that may surprise some of the followers of the show ‘Pawn Stars‘ on the History Channel. Recently, Chumlee posted on Ron Paul’s website. He stated that “I have no idea who this dude is nor have I ever seen the show, but he has 109,000 followers on twitter, so he must be pretty famous.” Some comments from Rep. Paul’s camp were civil, but reserved. One person made the comment that Chumlee was a young 20 something year old portraying a goofy character on the pawn shop show. Now, that raised a question, is he portraying this kind of a character or is this actually how Chumlee acts in real life?

There is nothing that I can find indicating that he is acting like a goofball, it appears as though this is who he really is off camera as well. Not to be mean-spirited here at all, but some people are very laid back and just let life happen, accepting what comes along. This is how Chumlee comes across in every situation or episode that videos his behavior and antics. It would be fascinating to meet him and see just how down-to-earth he is without cameras around. Personally, I think he would be a lot of fun to just hang out with and enjoy visiting about whatever comes up at the time.

What do you think? Is he for real… or is “Chumlee”the creation of a savvy actor?

In a more thoughtful description, Chumlee has a way of keeping every aspect of his life simple and uncomplicated. Frankly, this world would be a little better off if we would not take life so seriously, let our hair down, and just enjoy the moments we have with family and friends. Why not?

So, if Chumlee happens to be “goofy” in real life, great; more power to him! Who am I to judge his character and take umbrage to his behaviors? This is his life and he has the right to choose how he lives, which includes how he behaves at any given moment. Mr. Chumlee, I support you as a person, goofy or not, and hope that the too serious people of the world can learn from the real example you set. It is not the outward expressions that matter so much; it is the lack of stress you exhibit and the ability to let the negativity slide on by.  Congratulations on your success, especially since you obtained it without hurting anyone, judging anyone, or being afraid to just be you!

So again, I ask… What do you think? Is he for real… or is “Chumlee”the creation of a savvy actor?

Juicy Details About iPhone 5

As promised in the previous blog titled “Sell iPhones To Upgrade To iPhone 5“, I wanted to provide some insight to what is expected as a huge improvement over the iPhone 4S. Keep in mind that this is only an opinion based upon new features and improved technology inside the new phone. Regardless, there is nothing that can diminish the advances noticeable to those of you who currently own an iPhone 4 or 4S. Truth be told, there is likely to be a tremendous surge in iPhone owners now to sell iPhone 4 and 4S, or earlier versions, to pawn shops around the country; just as has been done before. Without further adieu, let’s dig in for some juicy details about iPhone 5.

SAN FRANCISCO - JANUARY 27:  Apple Inc. CEO St...

The unprecedented vision of Steve Jobs created a new world for every person on earth. His vision is living today as his legacy inspired his successors to move boldly forward and unrelenting to any boundary of technology.

One of the first changes that will likely excite buyers is the size of the screen. It will move up from the 3.5 inch size to a full 4 inches, yielding easier to read windows, icons and other visual effects. For the older generation of users, like myself, it is a welcome bit of news. The older the eyes, the larger screen that is needed; at least that is my philosophy. I am sure some of you in my demographic will agree. At any rate, this phone is due to have a much faster processor chip, the A5. “Two cores in the A5 chip deliver up to two times more power and up to seven times faster graphics.” as described in Apple’s web-page, will help to provide faster apps responsiveness and improve the user’s experience overall.

This processor will have speeds from 1.5 to 2.0 ghz and host 1 GB of ram to help deliver some absolutely blistering responses to launching apps, partially due to the 4G speeds available. What’s more, you will have access to a new 3D capturing app for your new iPhone 5; drooling yet? Oh yeah, you can capture, render, and process pictures in 3D, and with the upgraded camera features, this will include taking pictures in Panorama. If this has not got you on board for the new amazing phone, check this out.

Handling the phone will feel different, but better, with its new sleek design. You will have an extended life battery of up to 10 hours and standby time that is an incredible 1000 hours. The screen will be full 1080p HD along with a 3D video display to help you enjoy those 3D pictures in Panorama. And finally, this will be a SIM-less phone that includes 2 to 3 internal antennas. As Apple puts it, “…the iPhone 5 will be a World Phone.”

With other features to be announced as the release date nears, one can only speculate as to the astounding and uncanny abilities this piece of technology wonder will possess. While you are getting wound up about this fine piece of work, there is bound to be even better and more impressive products from Apple on the horizon. What that may be is anyone’s guess, or educated speculation if you have the insider’s scoop.

Thinking Of Pawning Something Can Be A Good Experience

The Pawn Shop II

Pawn Brokers want their customers to be at ease, to enjoy their experience, and to trust that all personal property will be carefully stored and protected.

The process one goes through to decide whether or not to pawn a personal item can be a real tricky experience. Trying to put some sequential perspective on this topic leans towards the reason for having the notion to begin with. What drives someone to consider taking a piece of personal property to turn over to a business? After careful consideration, it comes down to needing money the majority of the time.

Other considerations that may play a part in this kind of mind-set could include making some change on something that has no personal value any longer, getting rid of property that belonged to an ex-spouse or friend, or even avoiding the hassle of holding a yard or garage sale. Whatever the reason may be to pawn something at the time, the ultimate result is receiving cash on the spot. Perhaps, money being a driving force or motivator is not such a bad idea after all.

Finding the gumption to move beyond the anxiety or concerns that could accompany such a decision to pawn personal items may raise emotions in an individual that make the whole transaction difficult. Some thoughts to possibly help with that include, but are not limited to, speaking with a representative from your local pawn shop before taking the property to the business; read about experiences from others in your area to help discover any warning signs or areas to watch for; and research the value of your item from several sources before accepting a price from any representative.

Researching the cost of your item can be done easily by driving to three or four pawn shops to get quotes from each in order to get your best results. All in all, the process does not have to be so challenging that you cannot function in life. This kind of debilitating anxiety will not allow your thoughts to be clear and will most assuredly cloud any judgement when the time comes.  So, relax and enjoy the whole experience, and remember, you are going to get some cash in the process.

Betsy Bovine – A New Cajun Pawn Star?

How far would you go to pawn something you think is valuable, or at least of some value? What would you pawn if you owned animals instead of gold or valuable jewelry? Now there is a new series called “Cajun Pawn Stars” that just might fill your hankering for some real crazy pawn shop action. The series just began on January 8th and is claimed to be a huge hit. Donkeys, cows, and who knows what else will appear on this show. But, how far is too far when it comes to reality shows?

two cows

Cows are not the first choice when thinking of pawning your valuables, or are they?

Much can be said for less being more, but the concept for this series may not have a thing to do with the usual pawn shop scene. No, this is about making money, and hopefully, make people laugh. There really needs to be a lot of redeeming value for the sake of entertainment. I only hope that no one takes this show seriously, because it is not humanly possible that it was meant to be a serious show. Do not mistake the meaning here, yes people take their work seriously, of course, it is a job to the those putting this show together.

There is probably someone out there who just might think that it is perfectly alright to throw a rope on old Betsy and haul her prime cuts down to the local pawn shop. Please, please reconsider for your own psychological sake. Doing this may permanently scar the minds of those who actually witness this bovine blunder. Anyway, I hope that this show is all it is designed to be; an entertainment piece for those who need a break from the seriousness of the world.

Now, compare life today and the amount of technology you use on a daily basis.  Amazing isn’t it?  So many of you have taken the opportunity to purchase an IPad or IPhone, joining the techno-generation.  Since doing so, it has become a necessity instead of a luxury for a lot of reasons.  Shopping, paying bills, banking, oh yes, and socializing are all a staple of life anymore.  This, in turn, generates a need to stay on top of the newest versions.

Beauty is Always in the Eye of the Beholder

English: The three balls of the pawnbroker abo...

When shopping at your typical retailer, there is always a conscious effort to appeal to the senses of the customer. They want the eyes to see some astounding sites; the nose to smell the latest in candles, cologne, or perfume; and they want everyone to have the opportunity to try on clothes and feel the comfort. Of the strongest of these senses, sight can trump all other senses when it comes down to making a decision on what to buy.

Boca Raton pawn shops have done some work to create a very appealing experience for their clients. The opportunity to enjoy a shopping experience and draw to the needs and desires of the customer is part of what has been a focus. Who wants to walk into a junked out retail store? How is this supposed to appeal to the customer and send the message of, “We want your business.”? Well, it will not resonate in the least favorably for the pawn shop.

When you happen to be planning on going to a pawn shop for your next shopping experience or to sell your unwanted items, make sure the employees know how much you appreciate the looks of the store. This is always a great way to put a smile on their faces. Speaking of smiles, you should check out their buying opportunities. Selling some of your items that are no longer needed can put a huge smile on your face and cash in your pocket.

Part of what makes the whole pawn experience pleasant is the diversity of services. You can sell your items through eBay or in person at the store. You talk about a great chance for you to save time and gain some extra money; this is by far the most convenient manner for you to get that extra little bit for the Christmas shopping season. You won’t be the only one happy on Christmas morning!

Christmas shopping at Boca Raton Pawn can save you a fortune this year.

The big question that has to be answered is how can the gifts be afforded in difficult times? This is where your local Boca Raton pawn shop comes into play. They will have some of the best inventory around for electronics, Apple products – IPhone, IPad, or IPod, jewelry, and gold products. The great thing about this is that your cost is substantially less since you are purchasing pre-owned items. Now, don’t get all worked up over the term “pre-owned”. Pawn Brokers are very selective in what they take in and prepare for resell to you.

You can expect great quality, substantial savings, and great service. When all seemed to be dismal and not looking like anything of consequence could be afforded, you now understand that pawn shops can provide the means and opportunity to make this Christmas much more than what was initially expected. For those who worry about all of the high-end products available, there is plenty of the more practical that most of us can afford readily available to any customer.

If you don’t happen to see what you are looking for; don’t just walk out. Ask for assistance from one of the representatives and let them do the foot work for you to locate exactly what it is you are looking for this holiday season. Happy shopping!

Is My Rolex a Fake?

Counterfeit Rolex watches siezed by the US CBP

Fake Rolex Watches

It’s Friday afternoon and you have dropped by the local hangout with some friends from work. On the way there, you were approached by someone who claimed to have genuine Rolex watches for a huge discount. Already you are suspicious, but you decide to indulge the poor soul who you think is just trying to make a living. As he unfolds the sapphire colored velveteen material, giving the illusion of royalty being the previous owner, you see these impressive looking watches. The problem now is trying to figure out if the  merchandise before you is actually real or fake.

This little scenario is one that has been touted over the years many times. Whether it is seen in the movies or real life, it is an experience some have had. But, let’s put this into perspective and consider that the opportunity for you make a legitimate purchase from a dealer presents itself. For anyone who has desired the feel and look of a Rolex on their wrist, the compulsion to make that purchase can be intoxicating. To the buyer, beware. There are some considerations that become essential before going down that engrossing road of a Rolex purchase. To protect the initial investment of such an endeavor, a certain amount of knowledge is valuable, indeed, incredibly valuable.

If the luxury of locating an expert on Rolex watches is available, take full advantage of getting his or her advice on any watch you are considering. In fact, it is safe to say that most “legitimate” Rolex dealers will have at least one person on staff who can divulge all of the details of the watch, and how they are significant in being able to identify an authentic Rolex. By far, this is the best advice, suggestion, reminder, etc. anyone can provide.

What is it About Pawn Stars?

Pawn Stars

Pawn Stars

What is it that is so alluring about watching a series about a pawnshop? There is always the “wow” factor that catches the eye of the viewer. If that is not enough, it is the unexpected that people sit on the edge of their seats for just waiting for a mistake to be made or one of the workers to do something entirely outrageous. All of this, and more, simply attract the audience into a literal trance for the entire show. Is it possible that there is a fascination with the items as much as there is for the players involved? Sure, that is probably a high likelihood.

In fact, it is a perfect combination of human involvement where they share the stories behind the item they intend to pawn or sell along with the sheer fascination of what the item is that makes the show entertaining to so many. If you have ever been to a high-end pawnshop, the intimidation of the atmosphere might be overwhelming; all of that inventory worth so much money.

Seriously though, it is pure fun and a great way to learn about various products that many have never seen but heard a lot about. With the owners and employees doing their part to encourage, if not convince, the seller to come down on their asking price, an almost competitive appeal draws the audience into the action. Trying to guess just how low the price will go, or if the pawnshop will lose out on buying something that does not quite pan out in a future sell.

It is somewhat awesome to witness such character and incredible knowledge about so many “things” these players exhibit on television. There is a whole new respect for those in the business who truly know the art of being a Pawn Broker. This is no game, and it most certainly takes skill and talent to be successful; especially to the level portrayed in a television series.

A Rolex Is Not Just Another Watch!

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA (Re...

Image via Wikipedia

Over the past century or so, Rolex watches have been making a real name within the watchmaker’s community. Starting out with a few fancy watches, this organization has taken their name to new heights and branded the Rolex as one to not only own, but to become competitive. This driven by other watchmaking companies have driven this market to where hundreds of different kinds of watches, even luxury watches is being built and marketed. The intricacies in its design, its mechanisms, and its overall durability have made Rolex a target in just about every genre of watches.

However, what else sets apart this extravagant watch from the others? Is its popularity or is it the sheer number of varied products within the Rolex name? Whatever the reason, this has only added to its name recognition worldwide. Additionally, this watch is constantly battling with organizations that create fake Rolex watches in attempts to charge enormous prices for their flawed product in hopes to cash in on the brand name.

Unfortunately, this has happened a lot and many unsuspecting consumers, and in some cases a little naive, are the victims of fraud and don’t realize it until it is too late. Getting a great deal on a Rolex does not have to happen out of the trunk of a beat up Pinto or the coat pockets of a passer-by. Keep your wits about you when it comes to seeking out a great deal on a Rolex. Identifying a dealer who knows how to treat its customers and provide them with knowledgeable service staff is the beginning to earning a potential customer’s business.

The local Boca Raton pawnshops are a great place to get a fantastic deal on a genuine Rolex watch. Ask for the signs of identifying a fake Rolex. Be very insistent on getting all of the information you can to make an educated decision on this kind of a purchase. In fact, look up tips on how to spot a less than genuine Rolex by searching the internet; plenty of information is readily available for your perusal. Enjoy the opportunity of owning a Rolex and trust in a dealer who can earn the business of a serious client.

An Apple a Day…

Okay, so this is not entirely accurate. You won’t purchase an Apple product a day to keep the
compulsion away. However, you can certainly experience huge savings on your Apple IPad, IPod, or
IPhone by going to your local Boca Raton pawnshop. These stores have been taking in an inventory regularly due to the new versions of these products being released so frequently.

The brushed aluminum back of the iPad Wi-FiSome consumers are very devoted to Apple and wait on the edge of their seat for the next opportunity to upgrade. As part of this process, many will take the time to drop by one of these pawnshops to get a great deal from selling their phone, pad, or music player. The thought is to be able to recoup as much of their initial purchase price to reduce the out of pocket expense for one of the newer devices.

Who can blame them? This is just a wise way for reducing any loss on the purchase of a new item. As everyone knows, once a new product leaves the store, it decreases in value. Since a kindly used Apple product can be sold at such a tremendous savings, the value is actually better for the second consumer of the product. If an owner of an IPhone 3 happens to sell to the pawnshop, and the shop resells this
item to another customer, this transaction has savings written all over it. A great product for even a
better price will be the experience; you can count on it.

It is a matter of who has the best deal as to who will get the primary business. Take the time to look
around and discover what will work best to fit the all-important budget. For some, having an IPad
versus an IPad 2 is perfectly alright. The extra power or technological wonder on the IPad 2 may not
be necessary. Everyone has varied taste in what they want in technology. As the saying goes, “…to
each their own…” For any one individual, it is simply a matter of what they desire, what will serve their
specific need, or what will take them to the next level. While an Apple product a day is not practical or
sensible, one every six months to a year is not out of the question.

Pawnshops will buy your gold!

As most of you are already keenly aware, gold has seen some remarkable gains over the past few years.  At this point, it has been hovering in the $1700.00 per ounce range.  Think about that!  Could there possibly be a better time to sell any unwanted gold jewelry?  It has become obvious to some that now is definitely the time to let your local pawnshop help you out.  With the economy being so depressed and many people needing the extra cash, digging up any unwanted or unused items containing gold would be almost like going on a treasure hunt.

Being so close to the Christmas holiday season, some may feel the pinch to prepare for a little something for a child, spouse, or a dear friend.  Whatever the reason, many may feel compelled to share a gift even in meager times such as these.  If this happens  to be your circumstance and there is some jewelry, gold coins, or gold trinkets that you could part with and not lose sleep over it, perhaps, then this could be the right opportunity.

For some, the month to month, week to week, or day-to-day living with financial pressures can provoke thought of selling any gold that may be in their possession.  On the other hand, why not look at the bright side, finding any gold jewelry or pieces of gold from other items could certainly take some of the pressure off.

Think how much better it will feel by not having certain money matters haunting your every thought.  And what a better time than now to alleviate any negative stressors causing problems?  Your local Boca Raton pawnshop is well equipped to not only help you with buying the gold from you, but they will strive to ensure you get the best price as well.  Not everyone can make that claim, but these dealers and their representatives are committed to see that the customer needs are addressed with the upmost of respect and service second to none.
