[Online] Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage SaleVernon Area Public Library
by Adam Mintner. After donating items from his mother's estate to a thrift store, the author investigated the secondhand market around the world. From thrift stores in America's southwest border states, through high end resale in Japan, to a thriving used good market in Ghana, Mintner takes the reader on a journey of discovery about what becomes of things we no longer want. In a culture built on purchasing the newest and the latest, is there room for all we leave behind?
