  • Clint and Sheena Asbell

    Clint and Sheena Asbell are the owners and operators of Gainesville’s only pawn boutique, established in 2009. The couple buys, sells and loans pre-loved luxury assets such as diamonds, jewelry, fine watches and designer handbags in addition to fine jewelry and watch repair.

    “We are self made and are proof if you put in the hard work you will succeed. Through our store, Haile Jewelry and Loans, we have built and continue to build amazing relationships with our clients and pride ourselves on the level of customer service we provide.”

    They have experienced their fair share of challenges, but it has been a testament to their resilience. They look up to Eric Thomas, a motivational speaker, and they have used his message to embrace positivity.

    “These experiences made us realize that we are not quitters,” Sheena Asbell said. “That we can overcome any challenges we are faced with and come back even stronger than we were before.”

    The Asbells have used their company’s success to make a larger impact on the community. Since 2011, they have collected more than 60,000 lbs of food for Alachua County through their annual Food4Kids Backpack Program Food Drive. Their goal is to help alleviate child hunger.
