I've used Penzey's and Savory Spice - Penzey's used to have an absolutely wonderful ground bay leaf with a few other spices that I swore by, but they stopped making it about the time both they and Savory Spice came to town. I also use the bulk bin at the grocery store for some things that I'm only going to use a smidgen of. With both my husband and I going on a lower sodium diet, I'm about to start making my own blends - we'll see how that goes.

I get mine from a huge international market. They have everything you can think of and spices are fresh, cheap and packaged (not bulk germ festivals). I make all my own blends, so I have loads of spices (prob 140+). I stock up about twice a year.

That said, we no longer buy Penzeys

Their off the wall liberal political statements are flooding their newsletters.

I want spices, not politics rubbed in my face
I think the parent company, whatever their name is, has kept quiet, so I have bought some spices from them.

But I can't go without being able to cook... (well, I don't wanna), and one of the online retailers sells one ounce bags of spices, which would be perfect, and if they have more flavor I can make that work.
You can do with good basics and make your own mixes. SO actually made a prototype wall rack herb garden for the same project. Plastic containers save on weight.

Depends on the spice.

Certain things I will get from Penzey's or similar spice purveyors, like nutmeg, cinnamon, oregano, et al.

Certain things I will only use fresh, like rosemary or tarragon.

And some things I will buy the bargain basement, $.99 jar, like granulated garlic or onion powder.

I never buy mixes, I already have a cabinet full of individual spices.

That's an interesting idea, I would kinda love an easily transportable herb garden that we could hang outside...
