What We Buy and Sell
What is a Buy Sell Shop?
You see them in various parts of town and you have been wondering just exactly what is a buy-sell shop, how do they work and why are they becoming more common place?
Buy-sell shops date back to ancient times and are one of the earliest recorded lending institutions. During the late Middle Ages the House of Lombard in Europe had a group of buy-sell shops. The sign of the House of Lombard was the three golden balls and this sign was associated for years with the buy-sell shops.
The buy-sell shops came to America with the first settlers and in the early part of this century buy-sell shops were regarded as the main source of consumer credit. With the rise of large consumer credit institutions, such as finance corporations, savings and loan associations, and credit unions, the buy-sell shops are no longer the major source of consumer credit. However, they still play a vital role in the area of providing consumer cash. The tremendous demand of relatively small borrowing unavailable from other sources is the main contributor to today's popularity of buy-sell shops.
