A Little Bit About Us . . .

Welcome to Roost Crate! I am so glad you are here to learn a little bit more about our special company. We are so incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to pursue our dream and have you along for the journey.


In 2016, the idea of combining the love of farmer’s markets, shopping small and discovering quality small-batch products and sharing that with friends and family was born. Roost Crate developed into a themed monthly “farmer’s market in a box” subscription box, a small business in Upstate New York, perfectly placed between Albany, NY and Saratoga Springs, NY. We strive to support and spread the word about other small businesses and local artisans who we believe are the crème de la crème of the Northeast. Our humble beginnings quickly grew from a handful of monthly subscribers to over 200+ (and growing!) and can be found in all 50 sates.

Our customers often tell us that subscribing to Roost Crate is like getting a gift every month, which had our creative wheels turning once more. Founder Kelly Pugliano loves to give gifts and delights in seeing the reaction when her recipient opens a gift and absolutely loves it. We know many of you feel the same way which is why we have expanded our business and established our custom gift offerings.

Having the base with the subscriptions box, moving more into curated gifts was a seamless way to maintain high-quality offerings and continue working with family-owned small businesses. It has allowed us to offer unique gifts, not something you will find on Amazon, full of sustainable, well-made products that will make an impression.

We thoughtfully source and select items we love for our homes and clients that we know you will love as well, everything from artisan jams to savory sauces to homemade soaps and candles to home textiles. Each and every crate and gift box is hand-packed with love and care. A Roost Crate gift is a unique way to share high-quality items and goods that shows your thoughtfulness.  Roost Crate makes a great gift for any occasion! We offer pre-curated gifts perfect for Birthday, Thank You, New Home, Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him, Bridesmaid, Groomsmen, and more.

As a small business, it is important to us to support our local economy. With every purchase you make through Roost Crate, you are helping to support local small businesses and artisan makers and for that, we are incredibly grateful.


Thank you for visiting and we hope you find a gift that speaks to you. If you love it, then you know it’s a gift worth giving. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at roostcrate@gmail.com.


Thank you so much,
