Jan & Patty

The Spice Tin is the DREAM that began with a visit to a spice store in Chicago years ago. At that time both Patty and Jan were teaching (Jan at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp and Patty at Avery Middle School). As retirement began to become a reality, Patty pursued that dream, researching and learning about owning a business and fine-tuning what the dream would look like.
