Q: How do you choose the businesses that you support? Is there a way to recommend any?Asked by Samantha D., November 2020
We try to chose business that represent the city where they are made. Definitely small business or individuals who make the product whichever city we are exploring that month. I find a lot of the businesses at farmers markets in that city. We would love to hear of a business that you personally love. You can email us using the contact us button (we are not allowed to post an email address here). Thanks!
Q: Can we purchase multiple boxes to ship to different locations on a single order?Asked by Staci Q., October 2020
Yes definitely. We do a lot of corporate gifts, shipping to different addresses. Please email us and we can make a custom listing for you and we will handle the addresses/shipping from there!
Q: I'd love to send the Explore Local box as a gift, but only want a delivery every other month as opposed to every month. Is that possible?Asked by Katherine W., December 2020
During the holiday time (November + December) we have a "Holiday Special" box on our website, that is a six month subscription that is shipped every other month - January, March, May, July, September, November.
Q: Hi, Just ordered box as a Christmas gift. Will you time it so it arrives as close to Christmas as possible or will it ship right away? Ordered on 12/12 and I don’t want it to arrived a week before. Asked by Renee M., December 2020
Please email us directly and we can coordinate shipping for your particular order.
We gave this to my dad for Father's Day. He loves it. It is nice because it is hard to travel right now and it is nice for him to get mail/something to look forward too. He waited to open the first box until we were there to see it. I thought the items were really nice quality. My mom liked the information about the products and kept reading it while we took the items out of the box
Such a great gift. I love that this company supports small business and the way the box is packed looks so special - it really make a nice present.
I love this subscription!!!
Loved all the stuff from Hawaii!
Ordered this crate for my daughter-in-love who has been missing traveling during the pandemic. She has been absolutely delighted with the products and interested in all the new places she “traveled.”
This was a really fun box! I got the Hawaii one. The notes about the small business sellers and facts about the area made it more special!
Love this box! One of my favorite things to do when I travel is check out local small businesses, and especially now that we're living in the Quaran-times, this brings that experience home to me. I've received six boxes so far, and it's definitely going to be a mainstay in my subscription box rotation.
I loved everything about this box! From the informative stories about New York and the shop owners to the amazing items inside, I'm so happy I subscribed!
Lovely, different box, even kids liked it
I got this for my parents for Christmas and they love it! Great way t check out new places during a pandemic when you can’t travel and it’s a great gift for retirees who have everything.
