Here's What Rich People Are Selling At The Pawn Shop Right Now

In August last year, Todd Hills noticed something: credit had become so restricted that even the upper middle class was battling to secure loans.

So he launched Boomerang Lending – essentially a silver-spoon pawn shop that accepts Rolexs, Tiffany’s rings and Picassos as collateral for emergency loans of up to $100,000.

Hills told Newsweek:

“There is a certain type of affluent customer that will not go into a pawn shop. And they don’t have a $50 or $100 problem. Maybe they have a $100,000 problem.”

Boomerang is kind of like the pawn shop Annie Leibovitz used when she pawned her apartments and the rights to all of her photographs, only on a much smaller scale. 

We asked them to show us what they got.
