Subscriptions are the type of thing that people either love or hate. I understand the reason for disliking them, I mean why wouldn't you want to pick out exactly what you're getting for your money. Valid point, but for me subscriptions bring back childhood memories of mystery grab bags. As a child, I loved the idea of knowing I was getting some assortment of items without knowing exactly what they would be. The mystery always kept me coming back for more, even when the pay off wasn't always worth it.
While the items in subscriptions are usually way better than those good old grab bags, I still like to choose subscriptions that are aligned with my taste. Up until recently, I hadn't found any that really resonated with me quite like the ones offered through ZIIBRA. If you haven't heard of them, ZIIBRA is an online marketplace that helps you discover artists & makers that offer exclusive subscription for their goods. I love that it's a great way to support incredible artists while keeping up with their new work as the year progresses. A few of my favorites that I've discovered so far are Homestead Apothecary, Michael Duryea, Rebel Coast Winery.
