We are currently shipping orders 2 to 4 days after they are placed. Unforeseen carrier conditions may cause actual delivery dates to vary.
We offer free shipping on refill bags of spices and orders of $75 or more. For other orders we offer flat rate shipping of $9.
At this time we ship within the United States only.
We primarily ship via USPS Priority Mail, which takes 1-3 business days after we ship.
Please send us an email at email@example.com as soon as possible after placing your order.
We cannot currently process orders for shipping over the phone. If you need help placing your order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your purchase is a gift, please write a note on the cart page where it says "add a gift note to your order." Your note will be printed on the packing slip, which does not include prices. (Please sign your note, as our packing slips do not include the sender's name!)
Masks are required at all times. We cannot currently accommodate removing masks to smell or taste the spices. We are selling all of our spices in prepackaged jars and bags in the sizes available on our website (no made-to-order custom sizes or refills). We cannot accept any cash payments (but will resume this soon). We’re allowing a limited number of people in the shops at a time.

For everyone's safety, we require face coverings to be worn and ask those with symptoms of respiratory illness or fever to refrain from picking up orders. If there's a line, please use the markers on the sidewalk to line up at a safe distance from one another. Thanks!

Our inventory is a bit limited right now. What we have online is what we currently have available to order. Sizes are more limited than they normally are in our retail shops. Thanks for your understanding.
As long as you select the Oakland, Albany or Castro Valley store at checkout, we will know where you plan to pick up. Unfortunately, the address fields are a required part of the checkout process with the system we use. However, don't worry! No matter what you put here, if you selected your store pickup, we will have all the info we need.
We do! Please email us at email@example.com for more information.
All online sales are final. But if your package arrives broken or you aren't completely satisfied, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get right back to you.
Gift cards can be used on any item in our online shop. To use a gift card online, just enter your gift card code at checkout. You'll see an option to add "Discount code or gift card" beneath the order summary. If you don't use your whole gift card on one order, the remainder will be kept on the card for you to apply to your next order.
We have limited capacity in each of our shops. We have reinforced our existing training on effective handwashing and using personal protective equipment and we have increased our sanitation procedures in our shops and production areas.
Staff members are working at properly spaced workstations. Also, staff members who are sick will stay home from work. All of our staff members receive sick pay.
