Luck of the Irish

Looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? You may not need to look any farther than Goldman’s Pawn Shop in Downtown Evansville.

In celebration of the St. Patrick’s holiday on March 17, a special pot of gold display has been set up outside the shop, encouraging Downtown visitors to take a shot with the treasure.

Selling valuable longevity commodities, such as diamonds, gold, firearms, and musical instruments, Goldman’s Pawn Shop has a longstanding history in the city. Their historic building at 107 S.E. Fourth Street first opened in 1898, making them one of the oldest continuously operated pawn shops in the country.

The shop was founded by Eastern European immigrant Moses Goldman in 1898, who arrived in Evansville after stops at Ellis Island and Chicago.

A shop keeper and cobbler by trade, Moses kept his family in Evansville, where his shop has been passed down for five generations. The business has evolved over the years and what was once saddles and leather shoes are now digital cameras and game systems.

So stop acting the maggot and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow with a trip to this Downtown establishment!
