The Pawned Prawn is a general store in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim located in Riften. It is owned by Bersi Honey-Hand and his wife Drifa. It is one of the locations involved with the Thieves Guild quest "Taking Care of Business." The store operates from 8 AM to 8 PM with a half-hour variance.


As with other general goods stores, the merchandise available at The Pawned Prawn improves proportional to the Dragonborn's level. Example:



  • This shop's sign pays homage to the pawn shop symbol of three balls.
  • The Dwarven Urn does not appear in the shop until the quest "Taking Care of Business" has been started.
  • According to Drifa, Bersi believes there is a conspiracy to take the shop away from him and his wife.
