´Tis the season when the “shop-shop-shop” message is all around us.

And frankly, we all deserve something nice. The good news is, you can treat your loved ones (and yourself!) to the finest presents -without breaking the bank.

We at CashCo want you to be smart with your money, but also, to enjoy the season. This may mean “deprogramming” from the messages the “commercial culture” sends our way.

Here´s a sample of these messages, which may be ruining your chances of getting quality gifts for your family -at prices that won´t make you lose sleep:

MESSAGE: “The better deals are available ONLY at chain or department stores.”

REALITY: Department stores and national store chains spend millions of dollars in advertising. And you know who ends up paying for it all, right? The consumer.

REALITY: We at CashCo have are deeply invested in making our community and families stronger. Let´s enjoy long-standing traditions such as having a relaxed Thanksgiving dinner.

MESSAGE 2: Repurposed merchandise is not “nice”

REALITY. Quite the contrary. Repurposed merchandise is super trendy among the smart and fashionable set. From vintage clothing stores, to upscale Sotheby´s auctions and secret private sales, recycling and reusing is all the rage among the wealthy and not-so-wealthy. The truth is, everyone loves good deals! So plan a visit to CashCo pawn shop, you´ll find great prices and unique pieces. As for the recipient, we still haven´t heard from anyone complain about getting a gold bracelet from CashCo as a gift…

MESSAGE 3: You´ll only find run-of-the-mill stuff at pawn shops

REALITY: Also, not true. There´s nothing more frustrating that going to a party and finding three other ladies wearing your exact same necklace you saw at the mall´s window shop. At a pawn shop, you can obtain unique, rare pieces of jewelry and watches, of different provenances and styles. All materials, precious and semiprecious stones are by our professional teams for authenticity. So if you´re planning on buying gold or diamond rings for the holidays, find something really special at CashCo.
