Here in the Denver area, we're lucky enough to have two Penzeys, one of my favorite spice shops. You can purchase most of their products in small quantities, which means less waste. It also makes it easier to expand your culinary horizons without a big investment. Their gift boxes are wonderful for bridal showers and housewarming gifts, and their catalog and web site have great recipes.
The other reason I love our Penzeys? Both are right down the street from really nice yarn shops--Knit Knack and A Knitted Peace. Today I bought some very yummy yarn for a super-secret project, then walked down the street to Penzeys. Awesome! Now that's my idea of shopping.
I'll reveal more about the super-secret project once I've done the swatching, because we know how crucial the swatch is. You do swatch, don't you?
