Bringing Back the Old School
JVRaschi’s Treasures is probably one of the best kept secrets in Mount Washington. I went in there to get a necklace fixed, and ended up checking out all of the throwback treasures. When I saw the vintage hand held games I began to feel nostalgic. It brought me back to the time when my brother had an Atari and I thought was the most amazing thing in the world. The fact that you could play a game on the TV was absolutely magical to my 5 year old self.
With technology as advanced as it is these days, the need for simpler things is more desirable. JVRaschi’s Treasures offers that and a lot more.
Q &A with the Business Owner
Q: Tell us, in short, what your business/services are?
A: My services are to “buy, sell, and trade” jewelry, watches, gold, silver, vintage video games, and other things.
Q: What made you go into business in Mount Washington?
A: I have lived in Mount Washington for over 6 years and I wanted to keep my business local.
Q: What sets your business apart from other similar businesses in Pittsburgh?
A: I try to offer the fairest prices whether I’m buying or selling.
Q: Do you have any promotions /events you would like to mention?
A: Our 2 year anniversary is August 1st. I haven’t made any plans, but I have thought about some kind of event. The current promotion is “Silly Bands” for sale!
Q: Is there anything else you would like to mention?
A: I am more of an antique store than I pawn shop (actually I don’t pawn at all, special permits are needed to pawn). I would like more people in the community to think of my shop as more of an antique shop.
So the moral of the story is, check out JVRaschi’s Treasures, because you never know what cool things you will find that will take you back to your childhood again, if just for a moment.
