It was the summer of 1997 and Paul, Dale, and Ken were sitting around after dinner, enjoying a cup of coffee, engaged in a family brainstorming session. Ken had recently moved to Mount Dora from Metro Washington, DC. Paul and Dale had moved to the area from south Florida three years prior in 1994. The topic of conversation centered on starting a family run business. Paul had been a successful business entrepreneur in south Florida; 16 years as a pawnbroker. Dale, a registered nurse, was a health care consultant in managed care quality assurance. They decided to open a pawn shop. The rest is history! Good Used Stuff opened in January, 1998 and is in its 20th year of serving the Mount Dora area and surrounding community.
