'Given the way we live now,' writes Robyn Annear, 'it would be easy to suppose that newness has always been venerated.' But as this wonderfully entertaining short history makes clear, modern consumerism is an aberration. Mostly, everyday objects-from cast-off cookware to clothing worn down to rags-have enjoyed long lives and the appreciation of serial owners.

Nothing New is itself an emporium- a treasure store of anecdotes and little-known facts that will intrigue and enlighten the devoted bargain-hunter and the dilettante browser alike.
