New, 1 comment

Behold a sample of the best and brightest of housewares from Seattle's Craigslist. This week, we exploit the nation's fascination with pawn shops and show you some stuff that should be in one.

The piece: An oak and glass display case from the 1920s
The Price: $900
Use it for: Showing off your wares! Any good pawn shop has one of these babies, right?

The piece: A flipping CANE SWORD
The Price: $200
Use it for: Being friggin' Sherlock Holmes, bro! (Or, you know, displaying in your cool oak and glass case if you're a big loser with no interest in cane swords.)

The piece: An antique slot machine
The Price: $2000
Use it for: Luring nickel-rich buyers into your amazing pawn shop; storing nickels.
