Best Pawn Shop: Lee's Pawn & Jewelry

Once was the time that a trip to the pawn shop carried with it the lusty tang of the taboo. Friend, those days are gone. What's more, pawn shops have entered the era of specialization. Lee's Pawn & Jewelry, for example, boasts counter after glass counter of rings, bracelets, necklaces and brooches. The shop is so well-appointed, so clean, so open, so professional, you'll almost forget you're looking at other people's things. Friendly staff, well-lighted stock, vast selection -- Lee's is a must when your sweet thing needs a little bling.
