Braswell & Son Gives Back with Vintage Louis Vuitton

It was an absolute pleasure for Braswell and Son to be involved in the 16th annual Dazzle Daze, a benefit for the Conway Regional Health System. The outstanding event and raffle served as a kick-off for holiday shopping with proceeds going to fund medical scholarships and equipment, as well as patient and community programs. Braswell and Son donated a pair of handsome, vintage Louis Vuitton his-and-hers Keepall bags valued at $2,000 making sure Christmas came early for one lucky winner! The contribution follows a long history of the company’s commitment to community support and helped the Women’s Counsel grow the impressive $650,000 raised since the event’s inception.

Braswell and Son knows the importance of giving back during the holidays and every day. Since the early 1950’s, forming lasting individual and community relationships have been the foundation and success of Braswell and Son’s pawn and retail business. Over the years the company has responded to the need to get involved by dedicating time, merchandise, and money to local organizations and events to help build a robust economy and thriving community.

If you missed your chance at winning the pair of his-and-hers Louis bags, you can still shop our fabulous inventory that includes client favorite, the Bandouliere Keepall bag. The perfect carryall to carry on, the LV Keepall is ideal for holiday travel. The clean-cut and elegant styling suits both men and women, and the generous interior has room enough for a week away. Richly appointed with iconic LV monogram canvas, brass hardware, dual zip top closure and natural Vachetta leather detailing, the Bandouliere Keepall is the ultimate duffle that brings passion and adventure back to travel. The rolled handles and detachable cross-body shoulder strap ensures this carryall is comfortable, versatile and always ready to go!

During the holidays treat yourself to the gift of exceptional quality. Shop one of our three Arkansas locations or our expansive online inventory for the best selection and savings on authentic, vintage luxury Louis Vuitton luggage and bags. Look good and feel confident traveling in style with Louis Vuitton and Braswell and Son.

Braswell and Son Receives NPA’s Community Outreach Award

Each year the National Pawnbroker Association (NPA) selects one broker to receive its esteemed Community Outreach Award. It may come as no surprise to Braswell and Son’s loyal clientele to learn the company has won the Community Outreach Award!

Braswell & Son president, Douglas Braswell, accepted the distinction at this year’s Pawn Expo in Las Vegas. The Outstanding Community Relations Award is presented to an NPA Pawnbroker or Affiliate who advances the standard and quality of life in their community through public service or volunteerism. So, what does it take for a company to be recognized for outstanding community relations three years running?

Family owned Braswell and Son is far from your average pawnshop. With three locations in central Arkansas and a vibrant online store, the company is redefining the concept of the conventional pawnbroker establishment. Along with offering the very best in affordable vintage luxury, Braswell and Son works to create lasting relationships with every transaction by offering a personal, knowledge-driven shopping experience and meeting the short-term financial needs of their customers.

Community building is the heart of the company, and it all starts with the close-knit and mutually supportive family of employees and extends into the city and its neighborhoods. A percentage of each store’s sales and auction merchandise is donated to support several local charities. Braswell and Son backs local outreach groups including: The CALL of Pulaski County, Faulkner County Boys & Girls Club, Children’s Advocacy Alliance, Exodus Project, Law Enforcement Officer Awards – 20th Judicial District, Pulaski County Sheriff’s Awards Banquet, and others. But it doesn’t stop there—in support of music education, the company donated 20 musical instruments to Little Rock Middle School and gifted a $1000 grant for instrument refurbishment.

With a reputation that speaks for itself, Braswell and Son is a hard working, generous company whose purpose is to build trusted relationships with their clientele and community, as well as provide exceptional merchandise and short-term loans, along with outstanding customer service.

If you’re in the neighborhood, come in and say hello! At Braswell and Son, you’re part of the family.

What it’s About

“I don’t see them as customers or potential sales,” Bobby says, speaking about the people who come through the doors here at Braswell & Son. “I see them as friends and life-long relationships.”

Bobby Smith, Jewelry Sales Manager at Braswell & Son
Bobby Smith, Jewelry Sales Manager at Braswell & Son

Bobby Smith is the jewelry sales manager here at Braswell & Son; on most days you can find him behind the jewelry displays with a bright smile on his face that rivals the shining diamonds he takes care of. The reason he loves his job? The people. He makes it a point to send thank you cards and follow up with his customers and it’s for that reason the customers keep coming back.

“My focus is on getting the customer what they need or want, not trying to sell them the most expensive thing in the store,” he says. “They know I’m there to take care of them, not take advantage. That’s why they keep coming back.”

When asked if any particular customer stories stick out to him over the years, he laughs. “Hundreds of them. I’ve made so many great friends doing what I do, but if I had to pick one it would be the woman who came to see my wife and me the day my son was born. She was there at 5:30 in the morning before a lot of my family, just to make sure we were okay. That means a lot.”

Our mission statement here at Braswell & Son is “Pawn-brokers dedicated to building lasting relationships.”

These days it’s rare to find employees that are truly dedicated to the mission of the company, but Bobby truly encompasses what it takes to build those relationships.

“If I ever get to the point where I see my customers as sales and dollar signs, that’s when I’ll know it’s time to walk away,” he smiles. “I don’t see that happening, though, not ever.”

Integrity – Our Founding Principle

At Braswell & Son, we strive to do the right thing, even when nobody’s watching.

When you come in to pawn an item, you may not know the value of your item.  At this stage, some companies might take advantage of you and offer you much less than your item is actually worth.  As we are founded on integrity, our highly trained staff will exceed your expectations, offering you a fair price for your item.

Putting integrity into action is easy for our staff, as they are here to help you, no matter what the situation.  We aim to provide you the right value for any item you bring in, giving you the most.

Putting Trust Into Practice

When you pawn an item, we understand that you need peace of mind that when you come back for your item, it will be there. When you leave family heirlooms or other items you are emotionally attached to with Braswell & Son, we can be trusted.

We are not only gentle and caring towards your items, but we have operational procedures in place so you know that you can trust us with your items. For example, we use tamper-resistant bags for jewelry and have time lock safes.  These are only a few procedures we use to insure that your items are well taken care of.

Getting a short-term cash advance can be overwhelming, but we want to make you feel at ease.  Take it from one of our customers:

Because of Braswell & Son, I have had the ability to care for my niece and her two children without fear of losing my precious jewelry from my deceased husband. When times are tough, I can feel safe that my jewelry is in good hands and that the employees want to help me not lose these precious memories. I can only care for my family with the aid of Braswell & Son, and I am truly honored to say they are a AAA+ business in my eyes.
— Darla G.

We’re here to help, and we can’t wait to see you!

Respect – It’s More Than Just a Word

Respect isn’t just something we talk about – it’s a pillar of our business. We strongly believe in the golden rule, and we treat  our customers the way we would like to be treated if we were in the same circumstance.

We get it.  Things happen, life gets in the way, and most situations are out of your control.  Which is where respect comes into play.  We believe in providing our customers with more than just a short-term loan – we provide an understand ear and a private place to do business.

Being in a tough spot is hard, stressful, and trying, but at Braswell & Son, we are ready to help meet your needs with an attitude of respect and a professional manner.  Building relationships with our customers is our favorite part of this business, and we can’t wait to meet you, no matter what situation you’re in.  Check out what one of our Facebook fans said about us:

I have never been to Braswell and Son. I saw the post on Facebook and thought I’d read a few comments. Honestly figured I’d hear a lot of people complain because of a bad experience which is generally what happens. However I was pleasantly surprised at the responses people gave. I will be visiting your store now due to the amount of respect your established customers seem to have for you. I can’t wait to start some new memories you all at Braswell and Son. See you soon.

— Kimmie R.
