Hi Jennifer
Thanks for reaching out. The movement of packages has been less than reliable this season.
Please email me your order number and I will check on it's location from my end. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but once it leaves our facility it is out of our control.

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 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.

This was my first box and it is lovely! The packaging is great and well-insulated, especially for international shipping (which was pleasantly fast!). I haven't had a chance to try out the recipe or most of the other ingredients yet. I did, however, make sweetcorn fritters for dinner, and the sorghum syrup went REALLY well with a leftover one for dessert! :-D

Thanks so much for taking the time to review our box, Claire. I'm really glad you are enjoying it. Sorghum syrup is great on lots of things!

This box was just perfect and exactly what I hoped it would be. It was safely and beautifully packaged and was, I felt, a good value for the cost. I am looking forward to receiving my next package.
In addition to the included items (I won't give them away in case you haven't gotten yours yet), there was a list of included items with a description about what they were and who made them as well as a recipe to go with one of the main food items that was included.
I bought this as a little Christmas for myself and opened it Christmas morning since I was unable to be with my family for the holiday. It was fun and lovely.
