Acre75 Gathered FAQ's
What will be in the boxes?
Each Acre75 Gathered box will contain between up to 5 high-quality and practical products, all handcrafted in small batches in small Canadian towns [pop. less than 30K]. These products range from home goods, to bath and body products to gourmet food items and more! We hand select every product featured in our boxes with careful consideration as to how our loyal subscribers will use and interact with these items every single day.
The boxes are primarily geared towards women, but will also have products that everyone can use and enjoy!
When will my boxes arrive?
Acre75 Gathered is a quarterly subscription that ships on or around March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1. The first box you receive is dependent on when you sign up (see Cut-Off Date question below). It will be CLEARLY DISCLOSED in the product description when the next box is shipping so you will know when to expect your first Acre75 Gathered Box.

Is Acre75 Gathered a "value" subscription box?
If by value, you mean filled with high quality, handcrafted products made by hard working Canadians, then yes! Acre75 Gathered will never be a "get $200 worth of product for $50" type subscription box. We pay our makers a fair wage for the incredible time, effort and talent that they put into handcrafting each of their pieces. Most items in Acre75 Gathered are made to order and made in small batches. None of our products are mass-produced in factories. We will never ask our makers to donate their products. Acre75 Gathered is about story; it's about supporting Canadian made; it's about discovering new small towns in our beautiful country - we think that is very valuable!
