Legend has it that 500 years ago, a woman years ahead of her time pawned the crown jewels of Spain to fund a risky expedition across the ocean. Today, the spirit of Isabella – speculator, investor, ﬁnancier – returns to fund new dreams… YOUR dreams.
The Midtown Pawn Boutique isn’t just another pawn shop. The building, dubbed “The Isabella,” in an ode to adventure, future thinking, and risk taking. New to Midtown, our goal is to be a pillar of strength and possibility in the community, and a resource to both local businesses and individuals who want to leverage their assets.
The theme of royalty and riches runs deep inside of “The Isabella,” which looks more like an upscale jewelry store than your typical pawn shop. Isabella doesn’t exist to tote her own wealth, she exists to increase yours.
As mankind’s oldest ﬁnancial institution, our Industry carries on a tradition with a rich history. Pawn broking can be traced back at least 3,000 years to ancient China, and has been found in the earliest written histories of Greek and Roman civilizations. Today, statutory regulations of banking and ﬁnance are based on the legal foundation established by pawnbrokers. Many of the ﬁrst leaders in the banking industry had roots in pawn broking. As was the case 3,000 years ago, pawnbrokers continue to be a source of convenient credit for individuals in need of a short-term loan.
Isabella’s sole mission is to ﬁnance your dreams, and provide you opportunities to have what you want in life.
