Q: Pawn shops in China?

I was in Hong Kong a few weeks back, and walking around I was surprised by the insane number of pawn shops dotting the streets (triad-run perhaps?). Anyway, after seeing my umpteenth pawnshop, I realized that I'd never seen one in China (or Beijing at least). My question is, do they exist here the way they do in Hong Kong or not and why?

They don't have pawn shops here. You can't go to a store and sell your stuff unless it is extremely valuable like some old coins or something. And those people will only try to buy it from you because they know the value of the coins and think they can make more with it later.

Mattaya is wrong I'm afraid, they do exist, they're called  当铺  dangpu  and they only buy jewelry, watches and things of value.  They won't buy your old tv or crap like that.  Just look for the shops with really ugly jewelry, you can usually tell a pawnshop from a jewelers.
