I thought I would start off with a short list of where I shop for stuffs in my pantry. Over my time here I have come across many shops I find fascinating; whether I found it by surprise or somewhere that I have researched (online, word of mouth etc) and found the place. I have no affiliations with any of them but I thought it may be helpful for others to start looking from this list. I have also made a note of what I have bought and love from the store; hopefully it will be a helpful tip.
