pawn shop

Explanation

The pronunciation of the "awn" in the word "pawn" is quite similar to this final, so we chose a [-an] pawn shop to represent it. A [-an] pawn shop is sort of secondhand store.
  1. From the front you can see the door, patchy lawn, and barred windows.
  2. Inside is the display room full of vintage goods along with a counter to buy your items at.
  3. The basement has more items on display for sale, but is quite messy.
  4. The bathroom is a bit dirty and often has random second-hand goods lying around.
