The March "Relax and Regroup" Acre75 Gathered box has officially shipped and I am so thrilled with the reception! Here are just a few of the comments I received about the March box:
"That soap and scrub!! The entire box was fab!"
"I knew it was going to be a great box even before I opened it! Such great scents."
"I purchased this subscription box as a treat to myself and I cannot express the joy it brings me!!"
This is how I felt after reading all of those comments!
The March Box is the fourth box I shipped, and with Acre75 Gathered being a quarterly subscription box, this means I have completed a full year of shipping Gathered boxes! Truthfully, I can't believe it has already been close to a year since I launched the subscription portion of my business. I have learned so much this past year and I have so many ideas to continue to improve the entire Gathered experience.
Here's a peak into the March box:
If you are new here, Acre75.ca is our online store where we sell gifts and goods handcrafted in small Canadian towns. Each purchase on Acre75.ca supports a small town business and puts money back into small communities in Canada. $1 from every sale is also donated to rural mental health initiatives. In addition to the online store, we also have a seasonal subscription box called Acre75 Gathered. Each box contains a gathering of items from our online store, delivered every December, March, June and September.
Here's what we gathered in our March Acre75 Gathered box:
