Got something you want to sell to the shop? Perfect! However please understand that we can only buy items when both the seller and item are in our store! If this is something you can bring down to us please read the following FAQ for contact info, and be sure to read the bottom of the page for advice relating to specific categories of items. If you can't bring your item here unfortunately we can't do business as store policy requires all transactions to take place in the shop.

Just tell the parking attendant you are there to sell an item, if you are a local you can show your Nevada ID to the doorman and skip any line.
Q. What do I need to bring?
A. Your item and a current, Government Issued ID. If you have any other documents, certificates of authenticity etc. for your item please bring them as well.
Q. Can I send an item to you to look at and maybe buy from me?
A. NO, DO NOT SEND US YOUR ITEMS. We get so many letters and gifts from fans in the mail it is impossible for us to separate them out. Any items mailed to us without specific prior approval from a manager are assumed to be gifts and we are not responsible for returning them.
Q. I'm in another State/Country, is it worth bringing my item down?
A. If you want to check with us before bringing an item down email firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures, item information (please provide as much info as possible) and your asking price. Please only email us if this is something you are ready to sell or pawn and will be able to bring to Las Vegas within the next 1-2 months. Please note we cannot agree on a final price until physically viewing the item, allow 1-2 weeks for us to review your email, no follow up is necessary. If you don't hear back from us we apologize but we are not interested in your item. Due to the massive volume of items we receive our small staff is only able to respond to items we are interested in. We are always buying luxury watches, jewelry, gold and silver coins and bullion just bring them down.
Q. What is the best time to come to the shop but avoid the long line?
A. If you have an item to pawn or sell you always get to skip the line! Just tell our door person that you are here to sell/pawn us an item and you can skip the line. As far as slow times go they are usually in the morning between 9-10:30am or evenings after 5pm. Nevada residents always get past the line even if you are just visiting to look around, just show your NV ID to the doorman!
Q. Do I need to make an appointment for you to look at my item?
A. No appointments are necessary.
Q. Is there any way you guys can come to me?
A. If you are in the Las Vegas valley, and have a large collection, mobility impairment, work obligations etc. preventing you from getting to the shop, in special cases we can send a broker to visit you. Please email email@example.com and put *Vegas resident requesting vist* in the subject line. As stated above, due to volume we can only get back to you if we are interested, no follow up is necessary. Please note this is only available in Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City, NV.
Q. I just want help identifying an item or can you tell me what it's worth?
A. Unfortunately we don't offer appraisal services and cannot value/identify/appraise any item that is not in the store. Please understand we are just a small family business and the sheer volume would overwhelm our small staff. You can try local antique shops, collectible stores, museums or the internet to determine the price of your items. For Art items, we have had a longstanding relationship with Icon Fine Arts & Chad Sampson, an art dealer and IFAA appraiser we use for many of our transactions. Chad is also regularly featured as the art expert on "Pawn Stars". When you click on the link below you will be redirected to his website. Please note, this is an unaffiliated, third party appraisal service and as such Gold & Silver Pawn Shop makes no warranties or representations as to the accuracy of any appraisals or opinions you may receive.
