As new products come in, we are taking every precaution to ensure each item is sanitized properly for not just our safety but yours. Now that all three locations are open with abbreviated hours, we are only allowing TWO customers in our stores at a time.

Here at Yankee Peddler & Pawn, we buy, we sell, we trade. We have taken pride in our business for over 20 years and strive to offer our customers a positive environment and provide excellent service.
