We really try to be at the store all of the time during business hours, but sometimes we need to run to the post office or to the commercial kitchen where we blend.  If we step out we usually leave a note and will be back shortly.  Winter (Feb-Apr) days and hours are shorter than Fall.  Summer can be iffy.  We're a small business and we react to traffic and demand.  We do our best to update search engines such as Google, Yelp and so on, if we make a change to our hours.  We're open online 24/7 at!

We are not a medical or recreational drug dispensary of any sort.  Since 1973 we have sold herbs and spices and cooking tools for the kitchen or for home tonic uses. We sell  no drugs of any sort nor do we dispense any medical advice whatsoever.

Shipping is one of the things we merchants always struggle with.  As with everything nowadays,  fuel prices translate into rising shipping costs.  Carrier costs also change pretty frequently, and updating our shipping charges is complicated and can be confusing to everyone, so we try to address all of this with fixed flat charges that can cover our costs while being relatively reasonable for our customers. Here's our shipping charge table as it stands now (June 2022).
Flat-rate shipping 1:  $0.01–$19.99:  $4.95
Flat-Rate Shipping 2 $20.00–$39.99:  $5.95
Flat-rate shipping 3:  $40.00–$65.99:  $6.95
Flat-rate shipping 3:  $66.00 –$85.99:  $8.95
Free Shipping:  $86.00 and up :  Free
