Pawnshop: To some, the mere mention of the word calls forth a powerful sense-memory: images of outdated stereo components, smells of musty lawn mowers, the inescapable feel of ancient dust and grime. Not so at Sam Light Loan Company, located at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Olive Street. The store is clean and neatly ordered and the staff is supremely friendly and the merchandise is surprisingly modern. Flat-screen TV sets, Xbox 360s and digital cameras are offered alongside musical instruments and a fine selection of leather jackets. If, God forbid, you should have to pawn your own beloved possessions, this is as good a place as any to do it.
