The Benefits Of Buying Designer Brands From A Pawn Shop

What if we told you there was a way to treat yourself to luxury products without spending a fortune? It’s true! When you shop at high-end pawn shops, you can find authentic, high-quality and, best of all, affordable designer pieces.

Shopping for pre-owned items is more popular than ever as sustainability comes to the forefront. The World Economic Forum reports that 75% of Generation Z prefer to shop sustainably. Shopping at pawn shops is affordable, environmentally conscious and on-trend.

Affordability and sustainability are just a few examples of why shopping at a pawn shop is great. Pawn shops offer shoppers a wide range of benefits and an unforgettable shopping experience. Consider the following advantages of shopping at a pawn shop for designer items.


Arguably the most appealing benefit of shopping for designer brands at a pawn shop is you save money while getting the designer look you want. Even if a product has never been used, it is still considered a used item since it comes from an individual and not a store. This means you can purchase high-quality designer products for a fraction of the price.

Exactly how much you will save when shopping at a pawn shop varies from shop to shop and can depend on a few factors like how rare or popular the item is. One thing is for sure — you will not have to pay full price for any of the designer products you find.


Pawn shops are staffed with experts who ensure each designer item is authentic. As pawn shops are very strict and thorough with their inspection process, you can shop comfortably knowing you’re getting the real deal. A few ways pawn shops can authenticate pre-owned designer products include checking the product’s serial number and examining the stitching for designer bags.

Pawn shop owners and employees evaluate these products daily, so they have a good eye for what is real and what is fake. In the case an unfamiliar product comes in, or they want to verify their assessment with a second opinion, pawn shops may also send the product to an external authentication company.

It’s also important to note that it is safer to shop discount designer items in a pawn shop than it is to purchase a designer item from an individual. People can easily make fake accounts online and use fake names to avoid repercussions from selling a fake designer item.

A pawn shop is a business, which means it is legally regulated. Knowingly selling fake products would hurt the business’s reputation and sales. Pawn shops will want to avoid customers having bad experiences, so they will go above and beyond to ensure they only carry authentic products.

Like-New Quality

Just like their authenticity inspection, pawn shops will also closely look at any pawned luxury products to ensure they are in good condition. Especially when dealing with high-end items, designer pawn shops will only want to buy products that are in the like-new or never-used condition.

Pawn shop employees have a trained eye and know what to look for when buying inventory. Buying low-quality or damaged goods would be a waste of time and money for the pawn shop, meaning any products available have passed the shop’s quality test.

Range of Goods

Have you ever been out shopping for a specific item but can’t find it because it’s out of season? Luckily, pawn shops do not operate on fixed merchandise schedules or limit what type of products can be out for sale. If you’re looking for a summer print designer handbag during the middle of winter, check your local pawn shop instead of heading to the mall. You’ll have a much better chance of finding what you’re looking for.

Pawn shops are also great for having a variety of brands in one place. If you’re in the market for a designer watch but are not sure which brand you like best, avoid going into multiple shops in the mall. Instead, take a trip to a pawn shop to see the different brands and styles available all in one place. Having a one-stop shop makes shopping more convenient and also makes comparing various designer goods a lot easier.


Pawn shops save perfectly good items from ending up in landfills and allow customers to give these products a new life. The fashion industry is one of the most significant pollution contributors in the world, so pawning designer items allows you to find products you love while helping the environment.

Jewelry made from real gold and diamonds also has a negative impact on the environment as it takes a lot of energy to mine for these non-renewable resources. Enjoy beautiful pre-owned gold and diamond jewelry and reduce the need for extensive amounts of energy to be used to extract new materials.


One of the best parts of shopping at pawn shops is each visit offers its own unique experience. New items are always coming in, so you never know what hidden treasures you’ll find. Pawn shops have a collection of rare, vintage and exclusive designer items, making it an enjoyable experience to look through the store.

What Types of Used Designer Goods Can I Expect to Find for Sale?

The types of items you can find in a pawn shop depend on the pawn shop’s preferences and the types of inventory they have been collecting. However, it is pretty standard for pawn shops to carry at least a few items in the following categories:

What Brands Are Considered Designer?

Not all name brand or expensive items are considered luxurious or designer. Pawn shops that specialize in selling designer goods tend to look for several specific brands, including:

  • Jimmy Choo
  • Prada
  • Gucci
  • Coach
  • Dior
  • Tory Burch
  • Christian Louboutin
  • Fendi
  • Chanel
  • Hermes Birkin

Carola H

Great customer service and affordable prices. Super happy with my purchase

Mia I.

My husband picked up our engagement rings from here, best day of my life. thanks route 50 for the great selection. I was very pleased

Brad B.

The guys were really honest and straight with me. I went to other shops in the area such as jewelry exchange of tysons and got much much worse treatment. Other places you find either stuck-up trashy people, or extremely rude cut-throats. These guys were regular, nice, and fair; explaining the process to me and how buying/selling and pawning things work. I’d recommend them to a friend.

Michelle P.

Never disappointed. Excellent customer service, very friendly. Very clean store. Great selections.
