You never want something until you can’t have it. So, each week in The Sell-Out, we’re getting the scoop from your favorite retailers on what‘s selling like crazy. Watch this space to find out what everyone’s buying, sign up for wait lists, and keep tabs on restocks.
In this unforeseen era of excessive time inside, limited social interaction, and more homemade meals than ever before, we’ve had our shopping carts set on covetable new cookware to give our kitchens an overdue upgrade — and, clearly, we haven’t been the only ones. Cult-favorite eco-conscious brands like Our Place have hardly been able to keep their bestselling products in stock as consumer demand spiked for newfound stay-at-home foodies bringing their quarantine food fantasies to life.
