As people flock to malls and look online for Christmas presents, many do their shopping at pawn shops.
"Business is always great for us during the holiday season, especially during the holiday season" says Josh Oller, a manager at Silver Lining Jewelry and Loan
. Oller says you can find jewelry, electronics, firearms, almost anything at big markdowns. Jewelry is their most popular seller and he says many of his pieces look identical to pieces in the chain stores.
But are people coming in just to make a little extra cash, or are they coming to find a good deal? Oller says it's about 50-50.
