The team at Vintage Pawnbrokers were friendly, funny yet totally professional. I treated myself to a Rolex and a few weeks later I went back and Juliette helped me to decide on an engagement ring as there were too many for me to choose from. I'm so glad I found this shop.

A thoroughly professional team offering the best options for me. They beat the highest price that Id been offered by 2 other competitors. Both John and Juliette are extremely pleasant to deal with and I felt from the word go I could trust them implicitly. Highly recommended.


I have been a customer of Vintage Pawnbrokers for a number years now. From the very first time I used their pawnbroker loan service I found them to be efficient, professional, courteous and very easy to deal with. Their rates are competitive and I would have no hesitation in recommending their service to both friends and family.


Visited Vintage Pawnbrokers on the run up to Christmas on the hunt for a present for my girlfriend. (That's a hard task in itself) But the team at Vintage Pawnbrokers made it seem like a walk in the park. Friendly staff that made me feel welcome from the moment i stepped foot in the door. They talked me through the vast amount of Jewellery and watches they had in stock, their knowledge was exceptional. I found ring and it was resized to fit my girlfriends ring measurements.


Last minute birthday shopping for a nice gift for my Nan's 70th birthday. I passed Vintage Pawnbrokers. I found they were extremely helpful with ideas and very reasonable with their prices. I got her a beautiful necklace and pendant - To say she was over the moon is an understatement. Thank you Vintage Pawnbrokers.


I have bought diamonds on two separate occasions from VP. Each time the stones received have been better than my expectations. This coupled with first class customer service. I would not hesitate to use VP again for future purchases.


I have bought watches twice from John. Great prices and a charming retailer. 5 star experience.
