We reached out to CroneCrate and unfortunately, subscriptions aren’t open to the public at this time. When reached for comment, a CroneCrate marketing rep would only tell us that

Ye cannae subscribe to CroneCrate, child; CroneCrate subscribes to you

And then cackled into our ears for pretty much 15 minutes straight. But we’ll keep y’all posted! Regardless, our first CroneCrate was a huge haul and we’re super excited to see what we get next month!  ✨????????
