“I’m still working in the antique shop. Nothing new there”

An antique shop sells old things, and “antique shop” has become equivalent to “nothing new.” “Having seen your offense once is like unto having viewed an ‘antique shop’—nothing new” was printed in the Ventura County Star-Free Press (Ventura, CA) on November 20, 1956.

“I’m still working in an antique shop. Nothing new there” is a joke that was posted on Twitter by David Clarke on January 23, 2012. “I’m still working in the antique shop. Nothing new there” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on September 8, 2020.
