Create a new product design concept for a new marketplace. I was thinking of pawn banks and how these shops haven't changed for ages. In this concept, there are 3 parties, the seller, the buyer, and the pawn bank. Sellers can upload an image to the pawn bank to get a quick estimation of their item. They can then choose to either submit the item on the marketplace themselves and contact buyers. Or, they can sell their item to the pawn bank who then sends a box for the item and will take care of auctioning out the item, a win-win situation for all parties.

Furthermore, I was thinking of emotional stories and how these are lost in pawn banks. Buyers have no idea to whom items belonged to, and sellers might never see the story of grandma's ring. Having a digital marketplace and connecting humans with each other can also help retrieving those stories.
