I found a set of 6 cookie sheets here that was priced at $30. Definitely way out the range of the average buyer. Don't shop here try Amazon or another place with fair prices instead.

Tip for consumers:
Avoid this place and look for other vendors offering sensible prices instead.

I did not give it 5 stars because I wish Amazon would address some shipping and package tracking issues and include more products in their special Prime selection, but overall I am pleased and I feel I can rely on Amazon's reviewer community.

As a former Prime membership customer on Amazon I no longer see any reason to give Jeff Bezos or any of his affiliates or cronies anybody's money. I mean, the man is #1 richest in the world, unless one has a vested interest in displacing the Waltons as the #1 family in the world to hold the Walmart corporations and billions of USD, one should diligently practice the science of skinflintery. I heavily regret any dealings with anyone selling items on this website, and unless anonymous individuals known as 'Michael Deering' want to face me on the defamation lawsuit stand or queue up for a restraining order they should end Amazon's web service support. The warehouses in Amazon power 10,000 lb packing and shipping machines to fill and send the customer packages, to avoid liability and a potential lawsuit, so no one would be any the wiser if an individual's body were placed in a restraining device and thrown violently down the conveyor belt and buried offsite or cremated. Drones flying the skies carry 3,000 lbs. of Amazon merchandise across the skies and it is only a matter of time before they pick someone off or assert non-platonic connections of anyone that they perform surveillance on. Save yourselves and practice the narrowest skinflintery possible, hide your loved ones and stay off the Internet.

Tip for consumers:
Shop anonymously with the Waltons. Get a concealed carry weapons permit.

I like Old Style Conjure's products because they are hand made for each customer, and the owner is descended from 3 generations of hoodoo or conjure workers. They offer a line of authentic merchandise and coaching for those new to the hoodoo or conjure tradition. However, I would have liked to see a few more books and informational articles on their website, that may have given insight into some uses for the products they offer.

Tip for consumers:
Read the section that says 'hoodoo/rootwork information' for a definition of rootwork and typical practices of hoodoo or conjure.

The best quality spices that I have ever had the pleasure to use. Penzeys spices can easily outdo any ethnic shop's quality and selection of spices; their hot cocoa powder is out of this world. I would shop here and buy culinary gifts for everyone and anyone who loves spices and cooking any day.

Tip for consumers:
Check out their hot cocoa powders.

This website sells spiritual products in the conjure or hoodoo spiritual tradition of New Orleans, LA. They have a reputation for treating their customers poorly, making rude remarks, taking money online without sending the merchandise offered, and overcharging for simple, easy services. But what I find most misleading about the merchandise descriptions on their website is that they claim to offer pure, natural products made exactly as the original author of the recipe intended. However, upon close inspection of their ingredients list much of the merchandise contains synthetic colorants, alcohol, synthetic fragrances and chemical imitations of materials found in nature. I prefer pure ingredients in products which are formulated as the original author of the recipe devised it to the greatest extent that it is possible. Look elsewhere.

Tip for consumers:
Avoid this place if you don't like customer service hassles.

It seems many have had negative experiences shopping on Etsy especially when buying large, high value, expensive items that are custom made. In particular, custom orders are difficult to negotiate fair prices and returns for when the quality or finished piece is unsatisfactory. This has been my experience, and I have shopped for spiritual or religious items on Etsy that claimed results far beyond what they were realistically capable of delivering. Often, when a product did not deliver on the typical results described, getting a refund from the seller or from Etsy turned out to be a complete joke. If you want to find handmade, custom products that are one-of-a-kind, I recommend shopping at your local farmers' market or visiting a craft fair in your area.

Tip for consumers:
Avoid this site. Visit a craft fair, local artisans' guild, or a farmers' market.
