Posh Pawn is well and truly into its latest season, with five ‘tell all’ episodes already under wraps. Already, we’ve seen a rollercoaster of high end action, with bespoke DJ vans, Dali masterpieces, rock royalty guitars, modified sports cars, speedboats and more.
The action is showing no signs of slowing down, with episode six packed full of stunning items, colourful characters and of course, big decisions. So what’s set to shake episode six? Read on for the scoop on what James and the team encounter…
Diamonds and deadlines
As the UK’s poshest pawnbroking entity, the Prestige Pawnbrokers team knows a thing or two about luxury jewellery. So when a sparkling sapphire and diamond rings waltzes through the doors, James and the crew are ready to pounce. Dazzling from all angles, the ring is worth a cool £100,000. With just two days to turn around a loan, James is under the hammer to get this deal done on time.
Handbags for days
When a former fashionista approaches Prestige Pawnbrokers with a collection of designer handbags, there’s no better woman for the job than self-confessed brand addict, Claudia. She knows here Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and mui mui like the back of her hand, and can’t get enough of the butter soft leather, gleaming clasps and silk linings. Needless to say, she can tell her fakes from her genuines at first glance! Will the collection fetch a fortune? Or will the fashionista leave disappointed with a collection that doesn’t quite cut the mustard?
Turning possessions into peace
As always, Posh Pawn never fails to introduce viewers to quirky characters. In episode 6, this comes in the form of a yoga devotee wanting to loan items from her past in order to invest in her future. Can the Prestige team step up and help her build a better life? While finding inner Om might not be about cash, this episode proves that it definitely helps!
A Posh Pawn episode wouldn’t be complete without a nod to some form of luxury vehicle. This episode, James is forced to make a snap decision on a classic Italian scooter that may or may not be worth a bomb. Will he take the risk and offer a loan on the gorgeous slice of Italian history? You’ll have to watch to find out!
Catch all this and more by tuning into Posh Paw episode 6 on Channel 4.
From the rich scent of leather, the sumptuously soft feel of silk lining, the gleam of metal fastenings and the overall on-trend aesthetic, we simply can’t get enough of luxury handbags. Needless to say, Prestige Pawnbrokers HQ is overflowing with gorgeous bags from a myriad of high end designers.
