Christy Habecker, Owner
Hi and welcome to Farmhouse Crates! I have called Austin home since the 70's (yes when it was still a small hip town!), and am a proud 5th generation native Texan. I love it here and have had a career working for The University of Texas in the HR field, with an emphasis on recruiting and working with new employees/students. This has suited my personality perfectly as I really enjoy helping people. Along the way I have also pursued my creative interests, which are many, and in fact I still do sewing of home goods.
The unique perspective I bring to this business allows me to understand the needs of makers, being one myself, and I work directly with them to bring you the curated goods you will find in my artisan gift boxes. Chosen products are beautiful, functional, hand-selected goods from small makers all across the US, with a few from Canada and overseas. Many of these makers I have admired for years, and am so proud to now be able to showcase some of their goods and to promote their success.
Our rustic boxes have a lovely farmhouse ethic, with an emphasis on simple, meaningful design. I believe that a thoughtful gift should not only be beautiful, but should be usable - providing a sweet memory of the gift giver with each use. We offer a nice selection of pre-designed boxes via this website, and are also very happy to work with customers to create unique, one-of-a-kind curated gift boxes that family, friends, and clients will love to receive!
