Yes, all sorts and many old and stale.

My wife has bought alot there and never stale.  Maybe you had some bad luck. They grind all of the spices themselves so much fresher then pre ground and shipped stuff. Just saying.

I was writing about those in SuperLake which are brand names.  It got posted twice.  My mistake i suppose.  The shop opposite the Art Connexion is good.

Spices, like most things, have expiry dates. Mine, bought in SuperLake, have the expiry dates clearly marked on the containers. I don't buy anything without checking for the expiry date.

Being French I cook a lot with anis and fennel and I buy it at Superlake.. Dried ancho chili in many location, or buy dry ancho chili and grind it in a spice grinder or coffee grinder

ill buy dried spices that have expired or about to expire if that is what I wont and they have not expired 10 years ao.. Actually depending on what you need  but if you cannot find fennle or anis put a drop of the dry anis liquor or pernod and it will do the trick and you can always use the bottle to drink with water as an aperitif or flame shrimo or fish with it.
