Maplewood Pawn Staff

As owner, I have been associated with Maplewood Pawn since 1998. Every day is another adventure! I love working in a pawnshop. Before I was ever involved in the industry, I would spend my days (and I still do) going to shops looking for deals. So I guess I did my training on the road. Mostly, my interests are of the musical instrument nature. I come from a musical family. I play guitar, bass, harmonica, keyboards and accordion. I have been playing in bands for more than 35 years. My current bands are www.smashband.com , http://elcheapotricko.blogspot.com/  and The Elastic Waist Band. On my days off I also enjoy going to yard sales and antiquing. These are all good experiences for an occupation in a pawnshop. I also have absorbed a lot of knowledge from former managers about jewelry. There was much to learn. I’m grateful I had some good teachers. I collect many things, some of which are on display at our store (for example our “Famous Green Shoes”). Come see our “Stringed Instrument Museum!”

I’ll be honored to help you with any of your needs. Thank you for your business.

I have been working full time at Maplewood Pawn for more than five years. To be a good pawnbroker you need knowledge of many things. My varied work and life experience has helped me prepare for working in a pawnshop. For example, I have worked on and off in the construction field and played bass in local bands for many years. I have been playing in bands mostly in the jazz and fusion genre. My knowledge of musical instruments is driven by my interests. I have played bass for 20 years, studied alto sax for two years, and also studied with a Bass Institute Technology instructor. I am here to help you with all your needs!

Hi! I’m the newest addition to the Maplewood Pawn staff. Unless you come in on Saturdays, you won’t see me. I’m also a part time musician. I play drums in a local band. When not at the pawnshop, I work as a janitor at a local school. I’d love to see you, so come in Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.!
