So, if you have a TV or the Internet, I'm sure you've heard of all the different kinds of companies offering direct shipping, monthly subscriptions, and boxes, filled with all sorts of goodies tailored just to you. It's kind of, "the thing to do" and if you haven't heard of it, what rock have you been hiding under? Just kidding! But, seriously...
A short time ago, I had a shopping date and lunch planned with my friend Jennifer from The Willow Farmhouse. We met at one of our favorite places to shop for "junk" better known as architectural salvage, at Marshall's Antique Warehouse. I should have known it was going to be an epic day when I found a treasure I had been hunting months for. This vintage typewriter...
After sufficient time was spent digging through the goodies, we had to fuel up. With eating comes conversation, and with conversation came ultimate planning!
We were talking about a recent make and take craft party I had hosted with "Hey, I Can Make That!" and I was expressing my desire to find a way to make these projects "shipable" (yes, I'm well aware that isn't a real word, it's what my hubs calls a, Becky'ism').
Our talk went from packaging and shipping craft supplies to thinking along the lines of sending actual home decor accessories and items. 4 and half hours later, with a waiter that was happy to see us go, Gable Lane Crates was born!
Where did the name come from you ask? I wish I had a warm and fuzzy answer for you, but I don't. We came up with some pretty crazy things like working with our initials "J & B" and all we could come up with was Jack in the Box! Not good! A couple pages of chicken scratch, a few hits on thesaurus.com and quite a bit of laughter worked together to bring you Gable Lane Crates.
What does Gable Lane Crates offer? Well, we are a non subscription, monthly themed, home decor "crate" that is delivered to your door each month. Our crates (which is a fancy word for box by the way) are filled with trending home decor that will work in a multitude of home decor styles. From farmhouse, to cottage to urban rustic chic and everything in between... we are striving to bring fabulous home accessories to you! There are 2 crate sizes, The Original or The Exclusive. They will share the same theme each month, but the exclusive will have some extra product! We will also offer a 3 month package if you choose. These are great for anyone who doesn't want to miss out on the next month's theme!
Gable Lane Crates will be different than any other online retailer. Our orders will be open for a short period of time each month. For instance, February's crates are on sale from January 23-31st, or while supplies last! All crates will be slated to ship on, or very near, the 22nd of each month.
I hope you will be just as excited as Jennifer and I are. Thank you in advance for your support!
