Seasons greetings from an LA hound! I'll be up in the Bay Area for the holidays and need to do some very last minute shopping.
Does anyone have recommendations for a store that sells high quality spices that are attractively packaged? We used to have a spice store here in LA in the Farmer's Market that sold bulk spices which you could purchase either in bags or little metal tins with clear tops. Even something like vanilla beans in glass tubes would work.
I'll be in North Berkeley and can travel pretty much anywhere in the Berkeley/Oakland area, but don't think I'll have time to steal across to the city. Also I'll be shopping on x-mas eve, so the store needs to be open saturdays.
Thanks for any suggestions!
