I don't have PayPal! Can I still order from your site?
YES! We'll admit, it's rather confusing at checkout. PayPal is the service we use to accept your payment, but you don't have to have an account.
When you are ready to purchase your items, just click on that button that says "Checkout with PayPal". The next few steps will be all about shipping, continue through that and once again you'll be confronted with a "Checkout with PayPal" button. Don't be frightened, I wasn't lying when I said you don't need PayPal, click on that button. You'll find yourself at a page giving you the option to log in to your PayPal account OR pay with your debit or credit card.
Are your products gluten free?

Do y'all use MSG or Accent?

What's your story?
Let's say you're in the store looking for a new blend to spice up dinner tonight. You pick up an intriguing blend to look at the ingredients, they look something like this: "salt, paprika, pepper, spices".
You think, "uh, I know there are spices, it's a spice blend, so what are they??"
With our blends you never have to wonder what "spices" you're putting into your body. We hand blend our organic herbs and spices in small batches so you know you just get the ingredients you see on the back (and we put them all on the back). We founded this company to make it easier for you to find fresh and tasty blends that will enhance your food and your life.
The Charleston Spice Company was founded in 2009 by Garnette Tuten and Jeremy DiAsio. You could say that it started long before that in Peru where Garnette was exposed to new cultures and flavours that came to define her palate as much as her Southern upbringing. Both Jeremy and Garnette have strong roots in the South but each had a desire to explore and expand their culinary worlds. Looking to share this joy of culinary exploration with the people of Charleston they started selling their blends at the Summerville Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Over the years they gradually added more markets and more blends to the line up.
In 2013 Jeremy left the company to continue with the next chapter of his life with his husband in Washington DC. Garnette's daughter, Caitlin, joined the team and has worked on growing the company's online and social media presence. Together Garnette and Caitlin continue to experiment and explore new and interesting ways to use herbs and spices.
