A Skittles Holiday Pawn Shop will pop up in Toronto on Boxing Day

Wrong size? Wrong colour? Just wrong?

We all have terrible gift-givers in our lives. Surely in the moment of unwrapping you’ll smile and say thanks… but then what?

To donate, ditch or just re-gift?

Well, now you can try to trade up for something truly sweet.

The Skittles Holiday Pawn Shop is back for its sophomore season, allowing Canadians to off-load their unwanted presents in lieu of rainbow flavoured treats or broker a deal with Dale the Dealmaker.

The pawn shop is set to pop up on Queen West in Toronto on Boxing Day and while candy will be the main currency in-store, pawners will also have a chance to win candy-coated creations from Canadian celebrities.

On display and up-for-grabs, find treasures like 6ix Dad Norm Kelly’s briefcase, a hockey stick from All-Star Johnny Gaudreau, and a record from four-time JUNO award winner rock band, Arkells.
