Pawn News: High Street pawn shop Cash Converters has reported a massive surge in the trade of used bronze medals.
â€śNow the games are over, everybody wants a memento – while most athletes are now after some quick cash so they can afford to get the bus home.â€ť
Cash Converters have also reported stores are being overwhelmed by people trying to buy giant foam fingers.
â€śClearly a lot of people missed out on the opportunity to buy a commemorative giant foam finger during the Olympics and thatâ€™s a decision they are now starting to regret,â€ť said Patrick.
â€śI imagine these foam fingers will be passed down from generation to generation and will be highly sought after by collectors in years to come – and thatâ€™s why we can justify selling them for ÂŁ69.99.â€ť
