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. Going to a pawn shop often gets overlooked because people don’t realize its real value. It can be as simple as getting rid of your used or unwanted items that are taking up too much space for some quick money or buying something someone didn’t have a use for that you see value in for less. There are three reasons why you should visit a pawn shop, and here they are:
- Make Money
Yankee Peddler and Pawn is a great place to make money on your unwanted items. Do you want some extra cash? I mean, who doesn’t? Sometimes we impulse shop and purchase things we only use once or twice and forget about. Decluttering can be as simple as going through your jewelry box and picking out anything you haven’t worn in years. You could also go out to the shed in your backyard and look through tools that you might not have a use for anymore. Old or new, Yankee Peddler and Pawn will always take unused items off your hands. Making some extra cash can always be helpful no matter what time of the year it is. Through doing this, you benefit in more ways than you know. Not only will your home be more organized, and you’ll be happier with some extra cash, but it gives you a reason for some extra coffee runs this week.
2. Loans Made Easy
Yankee Peddler and Pawn offer loans that banks don’t. At Yankee Peddler & Pawn, loans are made accessible through flexible terms, no credit checks, and we have had loan experts for over 20 years. Here at Yankee Peddler & Pawn, pawning an item of value is simple. We issue short-term, collateral loans without any hassle of a credit check. Each piece is assessed based on its current worth to determine the value of the loan. It has been known that people are taking out a pawn shop loan more often than in past years.
3. Treasure Hunts
Even though we give you a general idea of what we sell, you never know what you are going to find. Our inventory has been carefully inspected by our incredible employees, making sure those who put their faith into Yankee Peddler & Pawn will be receiving quality merchandise. We offer all kinds of jewelry, instruments, tools, and electronics, with our inventory constantly changing. Some items are still in their box, ready for their new home.

1: Plan Plan Plan
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! We recommend using a planner or the calendar application in your phone to keep everything in order. Block out time for cleaning, working, free time and of course…more planning!

When you’re a mess, usually your home is a mess! Your health is also often impacted by stress and organization and by staying organized you can eliminate some of that stress and ultimately stay healthier!
4: Make A To-Do List
Making a To-Do list will help you remember what tasks you need to accomplish throughout your day. First start by jotting down everything you want to do for the day. Then prioritize! This is where you really see how much you can pack into your day and complete what needs to be accomplished. For example, cleaning out your closet might be number one on your list so you can get over to Yankee Peddler and Pawn to sell some stuff before they close for the day!
5: Put It Away
What typically happens after a long day is you throw everything down, hop in your comfy clothes and become a couch potato for the rest of the evening. Tip: DO NOT DO THAT.

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.

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.

For the Fall weather, we have a selection of clothing options ranging from jackets to shoes to help you stay warm in the brisk, fall air.
For the athletes out there, we have all sorts of sporting goods for football and other sports in case you want to shake things up a bit.
And for Thanksgiving, we have a unique collection of antique and home items that would be great additions to the display of your Thanksgiving, or Friendsgiving, table setting.

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!

Remember that band you were in during high school?
Playing cover songs, wearing clothes and a hairstyle you probably regret, and a name that was most likely a pun?
If you don’t have a story like that, it’s never too late to create one. Let Yankee Peddler & Pawn be your one stop shop for all the music equipment you need.
We have the equipment to get you started, such as guitars, drum sets, amps, cymbals, and microphones. We have carry brands like Fender, Pearl, Yamaha, and PreSonus. When your band starts getting closer to a record deal, we even have equipment like speakers and mixers. Anything you need, we have it here.
Stay away from those high prices or rental fees you get from other music shops.
Think instruments from pawn shops are junk? Believe it or not, Kurt Cobain used to buy and perform with guitars he bought from pawn shops. If they were good enough for Kurt, I’d say they’re good enough for anyone.
Stop by one of our three locations in East Hartford, New London, and Groton to see our selection.
