Why Not Online?
As OkieSpice and Trade Co has grown this past 2 years, there have been many discussions about selling online. It is a subject that has been talked about since day 1 but never was it a goal to be achieved in a set time frame. OkieSpice was never been meant to be online store.....it is meant to be experienced. Savored with all your senses.....first and foremost....because when you walk in the smell is incredible! The first comment when folks step inside is "It smells so good in here!" After that first initial visit.....it never gets old either! (Or so we are told!) Add that to the incredible sampling that goes on with our great products.....and folks just cant stay away! Even if you try to just pop in quickly.....it's hard to just grab what you need and leave. There is always something new to see, a new product to try or someone interesting to visit with!
However, in this weird time in history, we have come to the realization that we must offer a sampling of what OkieSpice is all about.....even if it's just a small slice of what our customers have shown us they love! Our online store cannot begin to convey the feeling when you walk into OkieSpice, but by offering this choice for our customers, along with curbside pickup, hopefully we can make a tough time a little bit easier. Just know we would rather see you in person, hear your fabulous ideas for our products, and know your family.
