"I don’t even live in the country anymore, but whenever I’m back in Oakland I stop by the spice shop...everyone is always so helpful, they were super sweet this last time and offered my toddler a cinnamon stick to suck on while I shopped. I highly recommend a visit, it’s always an inspiration! :)"

"I live for this salt. I give it as a gift. I put it on vegetables, in soup, in salad dressings...sometimes I just have a taste on its own.
