Wine DepartmentShoppers rave about our curated wine selection from Spain, France and Portugal.  I am retiring on January 31, and Mercedes is moving back to Spain.  We just learned that the new buyers (yes we have buyers, see more below) must get a fresh liquor license which takes 2-3 months.  So stock up now on your favorite wines that you can’t find anywhere else.  If we don’t have enough bottles in stock, there’s still time to place an order and receive it in January.  Just place your order by Tuesday, January 23. And, a 10% discount applies for wine purchases of 6 bottles or more.  Reply to this email, call the shop at 206-682-0679 or come into the shop to place an order.

We’ve got paella ingredients in stock, beans, and meats for cassoulet and Fabada Asturianas.  Craving soup on these cold evenings?  Choose heirloom beans from our impressive selection and make a memorable and comforting meal.  We still have turron available, tinned fish, Mojama (salt-cured tuna), Bacalou (dried cod fish), and excellent Spanish olive oils.

We have buyers for the shop that signed a lease for our space; we are signing sale documents early next week.  The shop will live on, with most of the same products!  On  February 1, the store will close for a refresh and will reopen a week or two later.   We don’t want to jinx the sale by divulging the buyers’ identity until everything is signed, sealed, and delivered.  Next week we’ll have an announcement!

Thank you for reading and I hope to see you before February 1.
