Oakland’s Pawn Shop has existed since the slow divide of Pangea. It changed names over and over; Mr. Oakland changing with it. His face, his age, his body…
“Out with the old and in with the new” is his motto. No one realizes how far this philosophy goes.
It’s said that he can touch an object and feel it’s history. He knows who owned it, who loved it, who gave it up. His shop is a mix of the very old and the very new. Some items aren’t seen unless the right customer enters at the right time.
People believe he’s a time traveller, a shapeshifter, or a fairy. Mr. Oakland insists that he’s just a good businessman.
