Need a little cash to get out of a jam? If you are in Iowa, and have an unexpected expense like a car repair, a pawn shop can help you out. For a reasonable rate of interest, set by the state of Iowa, a pawn shop will make you a small collateral loan in exchange for your musical instruments, bicycles, cell phones, smart phones, jewelry (like rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings), MP3 players, watches, cameras, laptops and computers, car audio, televisions, DVD players and small electronics. Leave the collateral with the pawn shop, walk away with cash. Pay the loan back with interest and get your item back.
