Q: How do i get the Feb box as a 1 x gift?Asked by Ruthanne C., February 2021

The Appalachian Mercantile answered...February 2021

To get just one box as a gift you can place an order for the monthly mercantile box. You will be notified next month, asking if you want to renew. You can cancel at that time, if you just want the single box. Thanks for your interest!

Q: Good Morning! We ordered 5 Seasonal Mercantile boxes on 12/03 - Christmas presents for family. We have not yet received notification that they were mailed. Will those boxes be there in time for ChristAsked by Stacy J., December 2020

The Appalachian Mercantile answered...December 2020

Hi Stacy
Thanks for your question. We have shipped your orders. They left our facility on Dec 9th. If you check the tracking information on your Cratejoy account you can see that they are in transit, or out for delivery. They should arrive by Christmas. The postal service is a little slower than usual with the increased number of packages this year. Thanks!

I love subsc boxes but stopped them because literally nothing was made in USA. Imagine my joy when I found this box AND I live in Charleston, WV so this is my Appalachian heritage. Why did I not know about this before?? Loved my first box and will support JQ Dickson as long as I can!

I specifically opted out of an auto-renew of this box and was charged twice. Otherwise, the products are solid. (EDIT: Appalachian Mercantile addressed my concerns in the span of a day. Thank you so much -- I'll be happy to recommend this crate to anyone. No cheap plastic baubles to be found anywhere, and the included recipes are a hit.)

We have really enjoyed receiving this box every month. The combination of items has been wonderful and comes from various Appalachian communities. There are typically some food items as well as home goods. I really like the treats (i.e., drinking chocolate, candy) and the home good/ craft items (i.e., tea towel, small hanging plant, cutting board, soap, etc.), whereas my husband really loves the food items. The food products typically contribute to a meal or snacks like soup, hot wings, or deviled eggs. We especially like the recipe(s) that are including with the mailing. We've been really pleased with the diversity of items. Plus, who doesn't love getting a surprise box of treats in the mail every month??

A good Crate. Not what I thought it would be.
I love the Appalachian Mountains & the "culture" & the items that are made & sold there.
Try this Crate, I was pleasantly surprised!

I subscribed to this box 3 months ago; and I can say with all honesty, I absolutely love this box. The shipping is so quick. The items are not your normal "sample" sizes. These are full sized items and high quality stuff I may add. I do get excited every month when I know my box is being mailed to me. I have not been disappointed. I would recommend this company and this subscription.
