Have we mentioned we love the Krrb community? Probably, but not nearly enough. With thousands of local sellers in one place, the selection is definitely great, but it can be difficult to discover the best of your city among all the others. That’s why we decided to celebrate some of our favorite sellers across the country and have a “follow circle” collaboration on Instagram. Get to know the sellers here, then head over to our Instagram to see why we’re so obsessed in the first place.
