A Pinch of Happiness Spice Shop
Providing the highest quality, freshest, and most flavorful spices, extracts, teas and coffee.
This small neighborhood store (74 W. Washington St., Oswego, 630 806-4990) has a big heart. It is staffed by adults with disabilities who are empowered to utilize their gifts in a positive work environment.
Over 300 items include tea, extracts, popcorn seasoning, local honey and high quality, fresh spices chopped or ground in-house. A popular item is Jumpy Monkey coffee, manufactured in Iowa by a company that also employs the disabled. Another favorite is the chai latte mix. The many varieties of gourmet salts — merlot, Himalayan, red alaea and more — will inspire any chef. Other bestsellers include the “Grillin’ Man” and “Baker’s Delight” gift box seasoning sets.
Candles, gift baskets and wedding favors are available ready made or custom designed. A professional herbalist hosts workshops and plans are in place to participate in farmers’ markets in communities in and around Oswego.Edit Module
