Pawn Shops. Explain Alot.

Today, I picked up some information from a pawn shop that I thought I'd share. The question was to the pawn shop owner: "what is the general trend of items being pawned?" And the response,

Silver.  "Lots of silver coming in and lots of demand. Older people selling silver that they've had for some time and now need to sell. The demand isn't as strong as the sales but it's out there."

Hmmm....

Now to the second part,

Motorcycles.

"Everybody wants them, especially Harley Davidson's but then they realize both the finance payments and the winter is coming and in they come. They actually paid on a credit card for the motorcycle and they won't be paying it off with what I'm offering them."

I wonder how these people will be voting in the next election?

They probably want change.
