Announcing: The May 2019 HaldeCrate – Cherry Bomb

Pre-orders for this crate will be available through Tuesday, April 30th, and will ship on Wednesday, May 15th. At that point, a limited number of extra yarns, soap sets, soap dishes, and yarn bowls will be listed and they will remain available until sold out.

What do you get to choose from in the Cherry Bomb HaldeCrate? A skein of yarn in the base of your choice (from what is available); a set with soap (scent of soap and hand lotion: Cherry Bomb [chocolate covered cherries]), and lip balm (flavor: Cherry Bomb [chocolate covered cherries]); a cherry-decorated soap dish, and a cherry-decorated yarn bowl. But you can mix and match as much as you want with your crate – multiple skeins of yarn, or yarn and yarn bowl but no soap or soap dish, or even a soap set and soap dish! Or just the soap set! Or four yarn bowls! It’s up to you – it’s your crate, fill it how you want!

Again, you can find the Cherry Bomb HaldeCrate here, and it is available for pre-order between now and April 30th!

What exactly is a HaldeCrate? Are you familiar with themed crates, like BarkBox, or LootCrate, or Hello Fresh? This is like that, but with a HaldeCraftian spin on it.

For a long time HaldeCraft has offered a yarn club, wherein you could pre-order if you liked the theme that was planned; I would tell you the theme before club started but not show off the yarn until after pre-orders were closed club was ready to start shipping.

HaldeCrate is a different type of club… in fact, it’s more like a one-time box, every other month, with a different theme and listing page each time. Not only are you told the theme at the beginning but throughout the time that pre-orders are available, you get more and more pictures of what’s being offered. Not only is there the ability to order yarn, but also soap and ceramics – or, also the ability to NOT order anything you don’t want. It’s much more either/or, and while people who were in yarn club aren’t losing anything, people who would also like a ceramic club, or a soap club, now have options as well.

For example, if you just want the yarn, you only pre-order the yarn. If you only want the ceramics, you only pre-order the ceramics. If you only want the soap set, you only pre-order the soap set. It’s all the same listing, it’s all called HaldeCrate, but you put together your individual crate from the offered options.

You can check out the Cherry Bomb HaldeCrate here! Thanks, y’all!
