The countdown is ON! We are getting very close to opening our second Oaktown Spice Shop location at 1224 Solano Ave. in Albany!

As you can see, the signs are up outside. We’re painting a beautiful bright red sign on the Talbot Avenue wall (it's not quite finished yet). We’re putting final touches on woodwork and fixtures. We’ve hired the entire staff and they’ve been training at our Oakland shop.

And of course we’ve been jarring, bagging and boxing up our spices so we can open with our entire collection on day one. If everything goes according to plan (fingers crossed!), we will be open late next week. Stay tuned for updates!
