East Fork’s Popular Seconds Sale Is Here — and Things Are Selling Out Fast!
Here at The Kitchn, there are some DTC brands we find ourselves consistently turning to when looking to stock our kitchens. And when it comes to ceramicware, we have an undeniable obsession with community-founded pottery brand, East Fork. The brand specializes in tasteful, muted colors and an organic feel, resulting in fan-favorite pieces that sell out faster than you can click add-to-cart. And while we find ourselves picking up gorgeous mugs, bowls, and dinner sets for our homes year-round, we anxiously await East Fork’s rare Seconds Sale. This can’t-miss savings event doesn’t happen too often and features some of their slightly imperfect wares at a discount — they even donate a percent of the proceeds from the sales as an added bonus!
And this weekend, we can finally put our anticipation to rest. That’s right, East Fork is having a surprise summer sale! You can score dozens of coveted, one-of-a-kind items for 50 percent off — that’s 30 percent more of a discount than previous sales on the site. The only catch: The pieces are available until they sell out. AKA you need to act fast in order to take advantage of the sale.
The sale is chock full of East Fork classics, like the ever-so-coveted The Mug, endlessly versatile Everyday Bowls, and fun, large serving bowls and platters all of which are available in a variety of stylish colors (including some of our favorite hues!). Each piece is hand-crafted with regional materials (local to North Carolina) and is 100 percent lead-free. Every bowl, plate, and mug is also microwave- and dishwasher-safe so that reheating and cleaning is just as breezy as using them.
Now, just because the discounted pieces are seconds does not mean they’re any less beautiful! These pieces either have minor blemishes, slight variances in shape or hue, or small scratches. But all the pottery included in the sale is perfectly safe and functional and still absolutely stunning. In fact, we love the fact that these reserved pieces have just a little more character. Who doesn’t want dinnerware no one else has?
With or without minor imperfections, East Fork is truly one of the best when it comes to craftsmanship, style, durability, and utility. Its virtually unheard of to get the chance to score these functional masterpieces at 50 percent off, even if they are a little more unique than their full-priced counterparts. Our philosophy? A little scratch never hurt anyone!
