Win the Gumbo of Antiques and Collectibles that is "Cajun Pawn Stars"


Normally, when you add "Cajun" to the title of something it's meant to imply that the once plain dish or item now has an element of spice to it. It seems strange then that History Channel's apparent definition of "spice" is a couple regular guys with a love for cars, movie, and historical memorabilia that happen to own a Pawn Shop in Louisiana. Can you handle that spiciness?! CAN YOU?! Dare you test the spicy wrath of their Cajun negotiating tactics? Do you have what it takes to face down the ragin' Cajun appraisals of a family heirloom? Whoa Nelly, you best be taking a step back. This gumbo of antiques and collectibles might be too much for you to handle, yes ma'am. Then again, maybe not. Maybe you are ready for the heat of the Cajun Pawn Stars kitchen.

If so, and you want to find out how you can win a copy of the first season of Cajun Pawn Stars, just keep reading.

People have been visiting their local consignment shops for thousands of years. In fact, up until the 1950s, pawn shops served as the primary form of consumer credit in the United States. In Cajun Pawn Stars, which puts a southern spin on History Channel's hit series Pawn Stars, a cast of quirky characters continues this age-old tradition at the famed, eclectic Silver Dollar Pawn & Jewelry Center in Alexandria, Louisiana.  The first season of this spin-off smash arrives on DVD this September, with eight addictive episodes including “Moonshine Mike”, “Money Bzzzness” and Donkeys and Dollars”.

Follow Jimmie “Big Daddy” DeRamus, a longtime collector who’s as savvy as they come, who established Silver Dollar over 25 years ago. His close-knit staff includes his brother, his daughter and others who might as well be family. Together they operate a 20,000-square-foot shop filled with so many rare pieces it’s been dubbed the “museum for sale”; it’s even a frequent destination for school field trips and tour bus excursions. At Silver Dollar, the unique family dynamic and never-ending stream of colorful locals make for a fascinating shopping and viewing experience as Big Daddy and his crew appraise, pawn and trade the Cajun way.
