Hello! We have arrived at the end of Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale By Adam Minter. What a fun read!
Here’s some conversation topics to get us started:
The evolution of Maytag’s advertising felt really pertinent to a lot of changes in the way we use stuff. Any other product changes — less durable, cheaper — come to mind?
iFixit is trying to get to the size of Home Depot. What was a thing that you’ve fixed? What was something that you thought could be fixed but you were prevented by the manufacturer from doing so?
How do you plan to convince other people that expiration dates are bad? Looking for some tips here.
As we wrap it up, what did you think of Secondhand?
We’ll be doing a new vote soon on other books to read, let me know any recommendations you have!
