Hi Jennifer

Thanks!

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!

We gave this gift as a Christmas and birthday gift to my in-laws. Being from WV, we had to try it. My in-laws loved it. They thought it was fun and enjoyed most of the choices. I hope to give it again in the future!
