Pawn Stars SA is a South African version of the internationl format set in Johannesburg, which opens the door to the Cash Inn pawn shop where owner Roy Peretz, his partners Eytan and Liel and assistants Irene and Solly meet customers from all walks of life who flock to pawn or sell anything from the quirky, the unexpected and the downright hilarious.
Pawn Stars SA is set in the Cash Inn pawn shop in Hyde Park, Johannesburg, with a cast of engaging and enthusiastic real-life characters and an array of unusual or historically significant objects.
South Africa's rich and diverse culture provides a treasure-trove of fascinating artefacts from past to present, from muscle cars to military, which flood through the pawn shop doors daily. Whether it's an ancient Khoi-San hunting kit, a Boer War coin or a Pontiac Firebird, everything has a story, and a price.
Roy and his team haggle with customers for the best price, aided along the way by experts in antiquities and pop culture.
The back-room shenanigans of the pawn shop team, combined with the historical back story behind the array of artefacts, create a gripping and highly entertaining journey through a nation's hidden gems.
