Tucked away in the Ole Fire Station at the corner of South 3rd Street and Walnut, in downtown Yakima, is a unique, rustic, shop that not everyone knows about. Bowlby's Gun & Pawn is Yakima's oldest pawn shop, established in 1917. Our shop has a variety of curios and interesting items that make it fun to take time just to look. You may even find a treasure that you just don’t want to live without. Do you have a firearm, antique, jewelry or something unusual that you no longer need or want? We buy, trade and take trade-ins. We offer consignments, appraisals and can help with identification of unusual items and firearms. We have plenty of off street parking for your convenience. Stop by today to see what we can do for you.

Find Value & More

We have a nice selection of jewelry, in gold and silver. In a wide variety from diamonds to turquoise. Jewelry can be a great gift you give yourself, a trophy for your own personal triumph or just because you like it. A good luck charm or a reminder that you really are awesome. It also makes a great gift or token of caring. Besides all that, it sparkles too!

We buy gold and silver or you can trade it in on something different. If you don’t want to part with it, you can pawn in it, we have been taking pawns for 97 years.

Washington State Law guarantees Ninety (90) days for pawn contracts and all interest rates and fees in Washington are the same. Our service and the care we give your property sets us apart, and we take great pride in that.
