Announcing the August 2019 HaldeCrate: Cats and Dogs

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

That's right! Cats and dogs, living together... mass hysteria! Hahaha. Just kidding (sort of). It's not a Ghostbusters theme, but it is a Cats and Dogs theme. Do you know how many National/International days there are in August for pets? Specifically cats and dogs? So of course that had to be the theme!

What do you get to choose from in the Cats and Dogs HaldeCrate? A skein of yarn in the base of your choice (from what is available); a set with soap (Puppy Kisses, milky and salty), hand lotion (Kitten Purrs, fruity and floral), and lip balm (Sweet Snuggles, buttered biscuits); a set of four coasters; a set of five magnets; a mug. But you can mix and match as much as you want with your crate - multiple skeins of yarn, or yarn and a mug but no soap or coasters, or even a soap set and magnet set! Or just the soap set! Or four magnet sets! It's up to you - it's your crate, fill it how you want!

Pre-orders for this crate will be available through Thursday, August 1st, and will ship on Thursday, August 15th. At that point, a limited number of extra yarns, soap sets, coasters, magnets, and mugs will be listed and they will remain available until sold out. You can check out the listing here, and play with putting things in or taking things out of your cart; spend more than $30 and get a 15% discount!

A quick note on the ceramics in this crate! They will all be slab-rolled ceramics impressed with a laser-cut rolling pin. Each coaster, magnet, and mug will not only be different from the photograph but also different from each other, because placement of the rolling pin will vary on each one.
