pawnMidtown Pawn Boutique

On July 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., Midtown Miami officially welcomes Midtown Pawn Boutique, an upscale, revolutionary, Miami-style take on the traditional notion of “pawn.” According to Co-Founder Adriana Hernandez Jimenez, it’s like the Neiman Marcus of Pawn, the Mercedes-Benz of Pawn, the Tiffany’s of Pawn. The Boutique features a giant mural that takes up the entire front and side of the large brand-new building – one that took over 5 years to complete. The mural, created by Wynwood artist and girl-power darling, Diana Contreras (best known for “Sofia Rose”), will be unveiled at the grand opening. The subject of the mural might seem an odd choice for a pawn shop, until Hernandez tells the story behind it. It is inspired by Queen Isabella, who, as legend has it, pawned the crown jewels of Spain to fund Christopher Columbus’ speculative voyage to “India,” an investment so successful that it lifted her kingdom out of a crippling debt that almost ruined it.Guests are encouraged to “Bring An Asset” to the party and have it appraised – an Antiques Roadshow-inspired way for guests to jump in and learn firsthand what their often-overlooked possessions are worth. Valuation Specialists from a variety of fields, from art and jewelry to antiques and handbags, and everything in between, will be onsite educating guests on “the story of their stuff.” During the event, donations will be gratefully accepted to benefit Dr. Gigi’s Raise Me Up Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 that provides free recreational programs, family support services and therapeutic programs to children with special needs in the South Florida Community.
