Pawn1st is a leading art buyer, art seller and art lender in the Phoenix Arizona area. However, the practice of art lending and buying isn’t quite as widely known as more common forms of pawning. But what constitutes “art” in the context of pawn shops? Art to us doesn’t just include paintings. It’s also sculptures, mixed media, drawings, architecture, ceramics, photography, and other forms of expression. These pieces can range from historical creations to contemporary works. They can come from artists at local, regional, national, and international levels.

Since many are new to this process, our pawnbrokers provide superior customer service to help you get the most out of your experience. With extensive training and unmatched professionalism, our pawnbrokers are highly qualified to evaluate each piece brought to our center.

Unlike art loans– where clients put forth a work of art in exchange for a loan– art sales are more permanent, but also more profitable. Since these kinds of exchanges are much more permanent, we recommend you weigh all the pros and cons before going through with the transaction. Moreover, don’t be afraid to ask our knowledgeable pawn brokers about loan alternatives to weigh your options accurately. Each of our 10 Arizona locations features a private viewing room, so we can offer full privacy and professionalism in the evaluation process.

Once our art buyers evaluate your proposed piece, they’ll make an offer to gain full rights to it in exchange for an agreed-upon sum. If you changed your mind later and wanted the piece back, the only way to do so would be by buying it back at the pawn shop you sold it to.
