Cajun Pawn Stars - KALB-TV News Channel 5 & CBS 2

Cajun Pawn Stars

Posted: Updated:

Move over Las Vegas Pawn Stars. Alexandria has a few pawn stars of its own, and they'll be starring in a new television series. News Channel Five's Nolan Crane shows us our own Pawn Stars.

"Were kind of a museum that you can buy things," said Jimmie DeRamus.

Jimmie DeRamus has been buying and selling merchandise for more than twenty five years and they have created one of the biggest pawn shops in the world, which is just one of the reasons why they have been selected to have their own show.

"We've got 43,000 items in this one room alone. There are more than 105,000 items in the building," said Jimmie DeRamus.

The most popular items include autographs, Hollywood memorabilia, and old coins. But to those that work here, they take pride in other merchandise they sell.

"My favorite items are actually the guns, I like the high powered you know semi-automatics military style weapons," said Tammie DeRamus-Credeur.

People come a long way to get their items appraised and the owner wants anything that is unique.

"We've had people from as far away as Tennessee bring items in here to actually sale us collections," said Jimmie DeRamus.

You can see all of these employees starting January 8th during the first episode of the history channels Cajun Pawn Stars, but you will also be able to see them in person everyday.

"There will be some on camera person in the store, every hour that were open," said Jimmie DeRamus.

The people in purple shirts will be seen as celebrities to some, but they say the added cameras won't change who they are.

"I am who I am and that's not going to change," said Tammie DeRamus-Credeur

"Were still the same family, were still the same people, we'll have the same friends, we'll see our friends, were not gonna change," said Jimmie DeRamus.

The Silver Dollar Pawn Shop also has the hearse used to transport Martin Luther King Jr., and the hand cuffs that were put on Rosa Parks. The first episode of Cajun Pawn Stars will air on January 8th at 9 o'clock on the History channel.
