Subscription Service

As a vendor how do I get myself in to your box?

Can you buy in block-subscriptions as opposed to month-to-month?

How do I update my account information?

You can change shipping, profile or payment information by logging in to your account and making the necessary updates. If changing shipping information, please also send an email to with the subject line “Change of Address”.


Can I make suggestions for what I want in the box?

 Absolutely. Send us a note via our email and we will certainly take that in to consideration. However, personally curated boxes are not an option at this time. 

Does your box only hold products from black businesses or are you open to other minorities as well?

Strange Roots plans to expand in to other spaces in the near future. We started with what we know and look to grow in due time. Keep an eye out! 

What is your selection process like for items in the Strange Roots Box?

We want you to discover businesses that will encourage you to purchase from more in the future! The businesses featured range from startups to established companies and provide products and services that you will want to support. 

We come across different businesses from vendor events, social media  and through referrals. These references are prime examples of the number of black businesses that are out there to support. To get your product in The Strange Roots Box, send an email to

The Marketplace

How do we purchase another full-size product that we like from a particular box that we've received?

Our website offers an a la carte marketplace that features items from each box during the month following the launch of each box. For example, products from the March Box will be available for individual purchase for all of April.
