ALBANY, GA (WALB) – One person's misfortune, may turn into a fortunate find for others. As the economy struggles to recover, many people are turning to Pawn Shops to make quick and easy money.

Others are turning to them to find quality merchandise at a good price.

At Dawson Road Pawn in Albany, TV's, guns, laptops and jewelry, are some of the hottest selling items.

"The main reason is people are obviously needing money," said Dawson Road Pawn Asst. Manager Adam Gilbert.  "And this is an easy way to come by it and get the quick cash, not have to go to a bank and worry about a big financial charge or anything like that so they just come by here and it's a pretty easy transaction to do."

Gaming systems are also popular at Pawn Shops. Here's one of the best deals we found at Dawson Road Pawn: a wedding set for just $150.
