"Old spice" contest
Now here's something you don't hear about every day: Herbs and Spice and Everything Nice at Findlay Market, which celebrates its one year anniversary, wants you to check your cupboards for your oldest spice:
"Help Herbs & Spice celebrate their birthday with a contest. Here's how it works. Look in your cupboard, your mom's, or your grandma's cupboard and Bring Us Your Oldest Spice. De and Susan will do research and determine whose spice or container is the oldest. The winner will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Herbs & Spice and Everything Nice. So start looking. The contest will run from now to the second Saturday in March. That's March 10th. Stop by to see some old ones that they've collected already. For more information, visit www.HerbsSpice.com or view the Herbs & Spice newsletter."
I've been too much into downsizing lately to have old spices lying around, but you might be luckier. What's in your kitchen cupboards?
