A new store in Tokyo encourages sellers and buyers of secondhand objects to share ‘personal culture’ along with the goods that are changing hands. Pass the Baton, which opened in the Marunouchi district last month, lists previous owners as ‘exhibitors’, complete with their photo and a short bio. Their personal page on Pass the Baton’s website shows the items they’re selling, have sold and will sell in the future. Kazuko Okuma, for example, is selling a number of items from her travels abroad, including a golf trophy that she won in South America, and sold a bag bought for a dance in Monaco.
