You might be wondering… why pawn? We’ve heard that question before, trust us! The negative stigma associated with pawn shops is not because the industry is untrustworthy, it’s because people don’t know what exactly it is that we do. Why would they? There aren’t many articles, press releases, or interviews about what pawn shops do and how they do it. There’s a serious lack of knowledge when it comes to the pawn industry, and we want to inform you so that there is no reason to be wary about visiting a pawn shop in the future!

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.

With all this down time and not a lot of things to do or places to go, get ready to channel your inner athlete this summer at affordable prices!

We sell a variety of great brands at jaw-dropping low prices! We offer all sorts of equipment, from bicycles to baseball bats and everything in between!

Bring down all your old sporting goods this summer to YPP for CASH and browse our selection for some new goodies to add to your collection and make your summer fun!

Gold, Our Favorite Metal
If you’ve ever google searched what is gold, I am sure you have come across many technical answers as to what gold is. Some common answers are that gold is the atomic number 79 and has a yellowish coloring. Although this is true, gold is so much more than an atomic number we learned about in 8th grade science, it is a commodity used to back the value of currency around the world. Gold is unique because of all that it can be; a rare metal, beautiful jewelry and of course money!
The Value of our Favorite Metal
According to Monex, much of the value that comes from gold is due to the scarcity of the metal. Research has suggested that the world’s holding of gold throughout history adds up to about 120,000 metric tons. Due to its uniqueness, gold investors place value on the metal for different reasons such as:
- Investment/ Savings
Depending on the reason for acquiring or selling gold, investors see gold a precious metal.
Like other precious metals, the value of gold fluctuates throughout the day while reacting to economic events. Around the world gold is directly affected by the relationship between the number of sellers and the number of buyers.
One of the major benefits to pawning gold is the fast cash! If you need money quickly but also want to keep your precious coin or jewelry you can. Another perspective is, if you’re selling gold, you have something that people want so selling is to your advantage. Here are a few things to consider before selling:
- Know the CURRENT Value of Gold:
As we mentioned before, the value of gold fluctuates. Your best bet is to use a baseline to determine the price of your gold
- Know the Karat of Your Gold:
The karate of your gold is how purity is measured. 24 Karate, pure gold is so soft it can be bitten into. If you’re selling a gold ring, the karat is typically engraved on the inside of the band.
- Don’t Mix Karats:
When pawning gold, it is imperative to keep all gold pieces separated specifically by karat. Be 100% certain to how much each karat of gold is in your collection. If you need help determining Karats, have your back, just call and ask!

Staying organized isn’t always an easy task, with balancing work, school, children, family, friends and whatever else life throws your way it is easy to get unorganized fast!

Did you know, the price of gold is at a general all-time high since the financial crisis of 2008? In response to the crisis, gold hit a whopping $1,895 an ounce in September 2011… crazy huh? Regardless of the price of gold, it will always remain extremely valuable in society simply because it has for over 3,000 years already.
Now, gold isn’t valuable just because it is shiny and makes your girlfriend really happy (although those would be valid reasons). Instead, gold is valuable because of its chemical properties, its timeless appeal, its long term store of value, and the fact it has no counterparty risks. Basically what all this means is that gold is very hard to be destroyed, it is aesthetically pleasing, and its value cannot fall to zero. Would you agree these all seem like great reasons to invest in some gold? Now, we’re not expecting you to get out there, get your leprechaun game on and attempt to find a pot of gold under some illusionary rainbow, because we’ve already done all that for you.
Yankee Peddler and Pawn is feeling luckier than ever this March due to our wide selection of gold we have here for our customers, you guys! Our inventory is spread across our three locations in Groton, East Hartford and New London, and consists of pieces from name brands like Tiffany & Co., Michael Kors and Rolex.

The holidays are finally upon us and we couldn’t be more excited. The weather is finally starting to feel like winter, the holiday decorations and lights are starting to illuminate the streets, and the holiday flavors and scents are starting to fill the air. I think it is finally time when you can listen to Christmas music with no shame. You don’t have to hear people complain, “What about Thanksgiving? It’s too early for Christmas”. Thanksgiving is over and everyone is now in full acceptance that the holidays are here. This begs to ask the question; have you finished your holiday shopping yet?
This time of year is all about giving and sharing moments with the ones you love most. Unfortunately, the giving season always brings out two kinds of people. First are the ones who have already finished their holiday shopping and have been done for a while. The ones that plan ahead and buy gifts throughout the year. In our opinion, the smarter and less stressed of the two. And second are the ones who most likely haven’t gotten anything for anyone yet. The ones who are going to panic in a few weeks when there are only a few days to spare. The ones who apparently like having the challenge of a deadline.
To those of you that waited until now, there is no need to panic. Here at Yankee Peddler & Pawn, we have everything you need to finish up your holiday shopping. We carry video games and consoles for the gamer in your life. We have cameras, drones, and instruments for the artistic one in your life. Our instruments have been brands such as Fender, Pearl, and Yamaha, to name a few. We have electronics like TV’s, phones, and computers for the techy in your life. And we have jewelry for the love of your life. We have carried brands like Rolex, Seiko, Tiffany & Co., Michael Kors, and Pandora. We are always getting in new items, so our inventory is constantly changing. Yankee Peddler & Pawn has something for everybody, no matter who you’re shopping for.
If you need to make room for new gifts coming your way or need some extra cash to finish up your shopping, bring in your gently used items to Yankee Peddler & Pawn and we will give you cash, fast. We value our customers and always present them with the best deal for their item. We buy items like broken or unwanted jewelry, tools, electronics, collectibles, and more. With over 20 years in the gold buying business, we can guarantee a simple and convenient process when selling your gold. We can quickly and accurately present you with competitive prices for your items, whether they are rings, coins, or jewelry. Don’t be taken advantage of at other places! The price of gold is at an all-time high, we guarantee to offer you the most cash for your gold.
Don’t put yourself through the stresses of holiday shopping. Stay away from the pushy crowds and the long lines at the mall or department stores. Forget those big box retail stores with their hectic crowds and save money with us at Yankee Peddler & Pawn. We specialize in used instruments, power tools, and fine jewelry. Don’t put your trust in online shopping to hopefully arrive in time. You never know what problems might happen with holiday shipping. Come shop at Yankee Peddler & Pawn and get what you want, when you want it, and always at a great price.

It’s summertime! For a lot of people, that comes with a lot of hours alone playing video games on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, PC, and other gaming devices! But, as gamers know, it’s not easy indulging all your time into playing games when box stores and retailers are charging a whopping $60+ for new games!
As a gamer, you don’t want to be spending all your summer savings on new video games that you probably won’t play for more than a few months. Besides, you could use that extra cash to take your significant other out to a nice restaurant!
Purchasing affordable video games are a must since those retail prices can rack up very quickly! But don’t worry – we have a wide selection of used video games for almost every gaming system! We have Call of Duty, NBA 2k18, Assassins Creed, Madden, Mario Kart, and so much more! The best part is – all of our games are under $40! Saving even that extra $20 during the summer months can make a huge difference in your wallet!
You know what is even cooler? We have three locations in Connecticut for all of your gaming and electronic needs: Groton, New London, and East Hartford. If you don’t have to visit our three locations, we also sell some our video games on our eBay store!
Buying used video games will save you that extra cash you badly need. And who knows – saving all that extra cash means you have more to spend on a ton of other used items at Yankee Peddler and Pawn!
