If you’ve always wanted to create your own monthly subscription box, Starting now, anyone – yes, you – can sign up to make their own Fancy subscription box. You can sign up by e-mailing email@example.com and once they set you up, you get to pick from a list of popular products on The Fancy, or add anything else you like from the internet, so long as isn’t deemed inappropriate by the startup’s staff (think offensive t-shirts, weapons, or drugs). The Fancy says it is looking for all kinds of people to make boxes, says a company spokesperson. That might seem like a risky business decision, but the company won’t procure any of the products for a box until one sells.
