Pawn shops offer unique holiday gifts

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - When people think of pawnshops, they think a perfect place to sell their unique items.

But, what about buying a unique Christmas gift?

Presidential Pawn in downtown Rapid City says it's a popular place for those holiday shoppers.

Owner Trevor Johnson says they offer things that can't be found anywhere else, such as clocks more than 100 years old, antique swords and even a glove that Micheal Jackson wore during a performance.

He also suggests getting an old clock restored as a gift idea.

Johnson encourages anyone who hasn't tried a pawn shop for gifts, to give it a shot.

"If you were to come here, you would be sure to find something for everybody," said Johnson. "We have a really diverse selection of items from musical instruments to oddball one of a kind swords. There is just always something for everybody."

Presidential Pawn is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
