Welcome to Behind the Box, our new series to introduce you to exciting merchants on the Cratejoy Marketplace! Each of these merchants has a unique, important story to tell, and we’re eager to help them grow.
Today, we sat down with Dani, the founder of Peace & Pages! This brand-new book box includes a featured novel each month, as well as self-care items -- like bath & body products and aromatherapy -- exclusively from small independent businesses. Every individual reader receives a novel specially selected for them!
Learn more below about how Dani and her husband Eric founded a business while raising a family -- and how their own tastes helped create this peaceful self-care box.
Tell us your story! What inspired you to launch your box?
We are a husband and wife team from a small town in Ohio. With a house full of kids, the "surprise" trend hit us full force. Unboxings, YouTube videos and surprise toys led to subscription boxes, and our whole family loved the idea of creating our own. Eric likes handmade and natural products, and I (Dani) love to read. The combination of both created Peace & Pages. We want to apply the personal, small business approach to our subscription boxes.
What do you offer that the world should know?
Our box allows the reader to pick from a variety of genres. The products will be different every month, and support small businesses all over the country. We want to provide a peaceful experience with our box, and a personal approach with our customer service.
Great! What do you want customers to know?
We want customers to know that we hand-pick these items and put a lot of thought into each selection of both books and products. We want our subscriber to be excited about their box, and be able to enjoy a variety of items from small business owners who put a lot of care into their work.
