You can tell it's all staged because no one is in the shop when they are shooting, it's always empty.
I know someone who has been on the show. The actual "negotiations" are basically real, but everything else is planned out. Obviously, people aren't just walking through the door with interesting items and the cameras are rolling. All the items and sellers are screened well in advance, and they come back on taping days and do the negotiatons. Any people milling about in the store are extras.

The "phony" aspect about the negotiations is that these guys really are wealthy TV stars now and not pawn brokers trying to make a living. They aren't negotiating for business, they are negotiating for the TV drama.
