Summary
Objects for sale at the Nakano Thrift Shop appear as commonplace as the staff and customer that handle them. But like those customers and staff, they hold many secrets. If examined carefully, they show signs of innumerable extravagancies, of immeasurable pleasure and pain, and of the deep mysteries of the human heart. Hitomi, the inexperiences young woman who works the register, will come to realize that love, desire, and intimacy require acceptance not only of idiosyncrasies but also of the delicate waltz between open and hidden secrets
