Global smash-hit Pawn Stars, the world’s favourite TV pawn franchise, is getting ready to make its mark down under, with the July 21 premiere of Foxtel’s new local production Pawn Stars Australia on A&E channel.
Dive head-first into the colourful world of Australia’s booming second-hand economy, as brothers Aaron and Ben Senes, and their best mate Shanon Folden bring you inside one of Sydney’s most renowned pawn retailer chains, “Happy Hockers”. With five shops, and 22 years behind the counter, Aaron, Ben and Shanon are always ready to buy, sell or pawn anything. If there’s money to be made, there’s always a deal to be done!
Watch as the team unearth the most extraordinary and interesting items that come across their counter every day. From a treasured tile from the roof of the Sydney Opera House, to a Laughing Clown amusement game from Luna Park, and even a prosthetic leg, nothing is off limits and you never know what will come through the doors! With a passion for searching and unearthing unique and collectible items, Pawn Stars Australia also takes viewers on a journey behind the stories of the items and how they came into the owner’s possession.
