PSA: Stores are starting to ban the sale of 'non-essential' items like plants, seeds, and clothes. It's rolling out at random based on local rules.

Some things you may need in the future that could be deemed non-essential:

- Furnace filters
- Light bulbs
- Seeds
- Potting Soil
- Wood
- Oil, etc. for your car.
- Clothes
- Shoes
- Socks (never enough socks)
- Fabric
- Yarn
- Thread
- Other crafting materials.

@RadioAngel

Is this in a specific locale, or everywhere in corporate stores?

@solarpunkgnome I think it's specific locales but it's been spreading over the past week or two. It just started in Springfield, MO among several other places in the U.S.

@RadioAngel

I'll have to let my parents know. They're in Missouri still.

@RadioAngel banning the sale of light bulbs? do they like have too many candles they need to sell?

@behold3r Basically, their blocking whole aisles at individual stores to prevent people from staying in the store too long.

@RadioAngel how the fuck they expect us to make masks and stay inside without any repair materials?????
What the fuck

@moss The good thing is we can still order stuff online.

@RadioAngel with postal services collapsing under the weight and getting the eye for the chopping block from 45 and sites deprioritizing 'nonessential' stuff, I doubt that will last much longer.
It's almost like, the only sustainable way to source goods is through a local production network made by people of a community....
Idk idk
