I went to see Harold with an heirloom necklace that I received from my grandmother as a wedding gift. It was very difficult for me to decide to sell this, and I was hoping to be treated fairly and with a modicum of respect. Instead, I entered Harold's "shop" which is mostly a room full of bars - not even a pawn shop, becasue there's nothing on display. Harold treated me like some drug addict off the street hoping to make a buck out of something I pick-pocketed. He offered my between $2000 and $4000 and demanded to know if I wanted to make a deal, and them proceeded to have a conversation with his co-workers in a different language while I stood thee and fumed. He finally got up to $5300 while throwing in some snide comments about my ridiculous expectations and the other people I got offers from were clearly all liars. When I wanted to leave, I had to ask for my necklace back five times before he finally handed it over, and then he wouldn't open the door for me to get out, though I was clearly upset. The man was a total jerk and was not going to offer my what my item was actually worth, only what little he thought he would get away with paying me.
It was a very uncomfortable experience, and I'll never go there again. If you need super quick cash for something and don't mind being treated like trash, then perhaps this is the place for you. But if you'd like to be treated with some respect, then DON'T GO HERE!!!
