As people shook off the last vestiges of winter, they began looking outside, turning to mosquito control gear, garden hoses, and dog harnesses for the pups they adopted during the pandemic. Speaking of COVID-19, though vaccine appointments are rolling out across the country, masks aren’t going away quite yet, and readers picked up N95 masks to keep everyone safe. Curiously, electric toothbrushes and beard trimmers were also hot items. Spiff up, everyone—summer is almost here!
