    Been trying to place an order with Kalustyans for several days now, unsuccessfully.

    While attempting to check out all I get is an error message that the page isn't available. I tried writing them to let them know there was a problem on the site, and my email was returned as undeliverable.

    Anybody know what's going on?

    Sorry, KY, I can't help as I've never heard of the company before, but seeing your post I checked out their website.  What do you use them for?  How do their spices compare with Penzey's?  Always looking for another option for online ordering of hard to get products.

    Pete, among New Yorkers, Kaluskyans is considered to be the place for spices and international flavors. They actually have a much broader line than Penzys.

    Haven't checked the Penzy's site, yet. Right now I'm specifically looking for mustard oil and black mustard seeds. While I was at it I was going to order some preserved lemon, salt-cured capers, membrillo, and Moscat vinegar.
