I am 100 percent positive that more things that are stolen are sold on ebay than in pawns.
Why bother the risk of getting caught when you can sell if for any sucker on ebay?.
Some people sell it at Cashies because they simply want to get rid of it, not necessarily NEED to get rid of it.
I am always dragged in to pawns by my DH, he is in to retro gaming systems and games and pawns are a good place to get them. I get cheap DVds sometimes for Shauna.
We also bought a cheap second hand 'old fashioned' tv.
We are not willing to fork out heaps for a plasma yet at the current prices but didint want buy a new 'old fashioned'tv.
This tv will hopefully do for a couple of years until the 'other' ones come down..
I also have bought a cheap 'pie maker' for 8 dollars. I have used it once
