Welcome to the California Pawnbrokers Association

California Pawnbrokers Association (CAPA) is an association of pawnbrokers and secondhand dealers and is the only one of its kind in California. CAPA’s members strive to maintain the highest level of ethical conduct by following established best practices and adhering to federal, state and local laws and regulations.

Since it’s founding in 1956, we have served the interests of tens of thousands of responsible pawnbrokers and secondhand dealers. The association serves it’s membership through legislative advocacy, professional education, industry programs and legal resources. Our members strive to be valued and respected by their communities by taking part in community outreach programs, as well as encouraging and fostering good relationships with law enforcement, state legislators, local government and community leaders.
