Rick Harrison and his family own and run a pawn shop on the Las Vegas strip. They buy, sell, and appraise items of historical value.
Rick's five rules of making a deal are: 1.) You've got to be able to walk away. 2.) It's just stuff. 3.) Don't tip your hand. 4.) Never give the first number. 5.) Never have a harsh negotiation.
Rick Harrison - 'The Spotter':
At my shop, family comes first, and money comes second, depending on who ya ask. But the best part: You never know what's gonna come through that door. This is "Pawn Stars."
The fossil seller claims that his spider fossil is "one of the oldest insects on earth." Spiders are arachnids, not insects.
Seasons from 2009-2013 feature the "original" intro sequence, which shows members of the Harrison family around the shop, showing off and handling a number of items the shop carries (including Confederate money.) This intro is noteworthy in that it does not at all feature Chumlee (as it is unlikely the crew knew how popular he would become at the time.) Starting mid 2013, a new intro sequence began airing, with an instrumental by Lynyrd Skynyrd serving as the theme music. It features the 4 main cast members (including Chumlee) walking down a Vegas street together, and ends with them standing on the Pawn Shop roof.
