Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
We're taking off early to celebrate the holiday -- you know, the day after Thanksgiving. Check the site and Twitter for updates on sales and such. See you at the malls! PS, save some money for the barrage of sample sales coming up next week, including Elizabeth and James. All the details on Monday.
